Percona Partners with Microsoft and Mesosphere To Help Enterprises Optimize and Maintain DBaaS EnvironmentsLaurie Coffin
This week, Percona partners with Microsoft and Mesosphere to make it easier for organizations to take advantage of cloud and container environments and run their open source databases, ensuring optimal performance while shifting their focus to improving applications and better supporting the business.
Percona’s new partnership with Microsoft to support Microsoft Azure customers, along with the availability of Percona Server for MongoDB in the Mesosphere DC/OS community, reflect Percona’s commitment to providing comprehensive support for open source databases in cloud deployments.
With open source databases now standard in the enterprise, organizations are increasingly looking to deploy those databases in public cloud environments to benefit from the flexibility, scalability and economics of the cloud. Percona previously announced support partnerships with Google to offer Google Cloud SQL services and Amazon Web Services to support the use of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), and Amazon Aurora on AWS.
Partnership with Microsoft for Microsoft Azure Customers
Percona has entered into a partnership with Microsoft, a Platinum Sponsor of the Percona Live Open Source Database Conference, to make it easier for clients to take advantage of the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. Percona software will now be available via the Azure Marketplace, simplifying deployment into Azure Virtual Machines. Additionally, the Percona DBA Service for Microsoft Azure, as well as other support services, will help Azure customers derive the most benefit from their open source database environments.
Percona Server for MongoDB Certified on Mesosphere
Percona has partnered with Mesosphere to deliver Percona Server for MongoDB on Mesosphere DC/OS (data center operating system). As reliance on hybrid, on-premises, and cloud environments continues to grow, enterprises are increasingly turning to Mesosphere DC/OS to run large-scale applications. Percona Server for MongoDB offers these organizations the best of both worlds: a free and open source, enterprise-grade version of MongoDB backed by the renowned experts at Percona, plus the confidence that the solution meets Mesosphere’s rigorous standards for compatibility. Percona Server for MongoDB is available to all users of DC/OS 1.10 and newer as a beta solution through the DC/OS Universe package catalog, with full Mesosphere certification coming soon.
