DURHAM, North Carolina – Sept. 21, 2015 – Percona, the company that delivers enterprise-class MySQL® and MongoDB® solutions and services, today announced Percona Server for MongoDB, an enhanced, open source, fully compatible drop-in replacement for MongoDB Community Edition that provides additional enterprise features and lower total cost of ownership.

Completely open source and free to download and use, Percona Server for MongoDB offers all the features of MongoDB 3.0 Community Edition, along with two additional storage engine options – PerconaFT and Facebook’s RocksDB – and enterprise-grade functionality, including Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) and advanced auditing.


  • As an enhanced drop-in replacement for MongoDB 3.0, Percona Server for MongoDB includes all the features and benefits of MongoDB 3.0 Community Edition.
  • Percona Server for MongoDB includes the storage engines distributed with MongoDB, MMAP v1 and WiredTiger, as well as two storage engine options not supported by MongoDB: PerconaFT and Facebook’s RocksDB.

  • Only Percona offers 24x7x365 live support for these enhanced features.
  • Percona Server for MongoDB is 100 percent open source and free to download and use, enabling organizations to avoid vendor lock-in through open source enterprise extensions.
