The selection of an appropriate replica set topology is vital for the robust and efficient management of the synchronizations between replicas.

The singly connected list and star and hub topologies are analyzed in the following sections. Using replicas with local or anonymous visibility will enforce a star/hub topology because those replica visibilities can synchronize only with the parent (global) replica.

A very simple topology consisting of four replicas (Redmond, ...
