How do I set up a new Cluster in MongoDB?

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2019-06-20
I may be thinking of this incorrectly, but still, I want to get a bottom line.

I want to set up what equates to a new database in Mongo. I'm thinking, from the standpoint of verbiage, what I want to do is set up a new "cluster."

If I'm understanding things correctly, a "cluster" is going to be a group of "collections" and within those various "collections" I'll have my various "documents."

is that right?

If so, I want to set up a new "cluster." I'm going through a tutorial and I have my free account with a cluster called "test." I want to set up a new cluster but I'm not sure how to do that.

Need some help...

A cluster is a group of computers acting as one.
So you setup 3 or 5 etc  systems that all manage the same database.
(The data may be on all nodes or on some of nodes).

You can query any node for the data, and will get the same answer regardless of the node you asked .
