Percona is pleased to announce the release of Percona Server for MongoDB 3.0.5-rc7 on September 21, 2015. Download the latest version from the Percona web site or from the Percona Software Repositories.
Percona Server for MongoDB is an enhanced, open source, fully compatible, highly scalable, zero-maintenance downtime database supporting the MongoDB v3.0 protocol and drivers. Based on MongoDB 3.0.5, it extends MongoDB with RocksDB and PerconaFT storage engines, as well as features like external authentication and audit logging. Percona Server for MongoDB requires no changes to MongoDB applications or code.
- Auditing enables administrators to track and log user activity on a server. The server generates an audit log file with information about different user events, including authentication, authorization failures, and so on.
- External authentication enables the MongoDB server to verify the client’s user name and password against a separate (external) service, such as OpenLDAP or Active Directory.
