For Amazon RDS, Tags Are Backed Up, and You Can Specify Multiple Security Groups During a Restore

When you perform a full backup of an Amazon RDS instance group on Amazon cloud, the backup operation takes a snapshot of the instance group and includes all the tags associated with the instance.

When you restore an Amazon RDS Instance, you can specify multiple security groups to define which subnets and IP ranges the cluster or instance can use in the Amazon virtual private cloud (VPC).

Fully Automated Restores for MongoDB

Restores for MongoDB clusters are fully automated, requiring no manual intervention.

As part of the automated procedure, before the restore operation, the MongoDB servers are shut down and the data paths are cleaned up. Data is restored to all the MongoDB servers in the destination cluster instead of using the resource-intensive initial sync MongoDB operation.

After the restore operation, all the secondary members are added to the replica sets automatically.
