atomic transactions - managed mongodb


according to digitalocean docs

in MongoDB, transactions can only be performed on MongoDB instances that are running as part of a larger cluster. This could either be a sharded database cluster or a replica set.

is this possible on managed mongo database? I want to use atomic operations on multiple collections that all needs to fail if any of them fails.

Do I need to activate two standby nodes to use this or is this available on any managed mongo db?
