New Releases of Percona Server for MongoDB, Percona Monitoring and Management, and Percona Toolkit Ensure a Robust, Secure Database That Can Be Adapted to Changing Business Requirements

RALEIGH, North Carolina – Feb. 14, 2017 Percona, the company that delivers enterprise-class MySQL® and MongoDB® solutions and services, today announced a solution bundle of updated products that enable any organization to create a robust, secure database environment that can be adapted to changing business requirements. Percona Server for MongoDB 3.4, Percona Monitoring and Management 1.1, and Percona Toolkit 3.0 offer more features and benefits, with enhancements for both MongoDB® and MySQL® database environments. When these products are used together, organizations gain all the cost and agility benefits provided by free, proven open source software that delivers all the latest MongoDB Community Edition 3.4 features, additional Enterprise features, and a greater choice of storage engines. Along with improved insight into the database environment, the solution provides enhanced control options for optimizing a wider range of database workloads with greater reliability and security. The solution will be generally available the week of Feb. 20.

Percona’s bundled release of Percona Server for MongoDB, Percona Monitoring and Management and Percona Toolkit gives organizations the ability to better architect, monitor, manage and optimize databases to meet performance, growth and scalability demands. With many Enterprise Edition features already included, Percona Server for MongoDB offers a more robust database without the additional cost. Percona Monitoring and Management provides administrators with more visibility into the database environment, enabling them to resolve issues faster, increase performance through focused optimization, and better manage resources. Percona Toolkit performs a variety of MySQL, MongoDB and system tasks that are too difficult or complex to perform manually.

    “We love MongoDB users, and we’re showing it with a powerful MongoDB solution that includes server software, monitoring and management, and optimization tools so your database environment is robust enough to handle many different workloads. Each solution provides a number of important enhancements; however, together, they enable companies to take maximum advantage of all the cost and agility benefits of open source software for more database workload environments – with enterprise-grade reliability and security, and the ability to adapt to changing business needs.”
