Disaster Recovery planning for MongoDB Atlas

Hello there,

Recently the enterprise I work for has begun to use MongoDB Atlas, and I am looking into the backup and recovery options for DR planning. It seems the simplest approach is to use the cloud backup option.

Initially I have here a 3 replica set cluster. It seems the backups, or snapshots, are kept in the same region as this cluster. If the cluster were to disappear for some reason, and/or potentially the region, how would I gain access to the backup? Is it possible to replicate it to another region? Forgive me for any terminology misuse as I am still new to the MongoDB space.

Regards
O
