Percona Server for MongoDB – Now Featuring HashiCorp Vault Integration

Percona Server for MongoDBLast Friday we announced the release of Percona Server for MongoDB 4.0.10-5. This can be downloaded from the Percona website or the Percona software repositories.

Percona Server for MongoDB is an enhanced, open source, and highly-scalable database. It is a fully compatible, drop-in replacement for MongoDB 4.0 Community Edition and doesn’t require any changes to MongoDB applications or code.

Our latest release includes all the new features of MongoDB 4.0 Community Edition including Multi-Document ACID transactions, type conversion through the new aggregation operators and enhancements to the Change Streams support.

At Percona we pride ourselves on adding new and exciting enterprise-level features to our software, not just duplicating the latest community version. We are also strongly focused on ensuring our software users have the tools they need to securely manage their data.

HashiCorp Vault Integration

As a result, we are excited to announce integration with HashiCorp Vault in our release of Percona Server for MongoDB 4.0.10-5.

Understanding who is accessing private information on your system can be a challenge. Regular password changes, safe storage, and detailed audit logs are essential to ensuring secure systems.

HashiCorp Vault is a product which manages secrets and protects sensitive data. It securely stores and tightly controls access to confidential information.

In previous versions of Percona Server for MongoDB, the data at rest encryption key was stored locally on the server inside the key file. Our integration withHashiCorp Vault now enables you to store the encryption key more securely inside the vault

Further information on the key features and benefits of HashiCorp Vault can be found here.

Specific details on our data at rest encryption support can be found in ’Data at Rest Encryption’ in the documentation of Percona Server for MongoDB.

Additionally, as well as including the latest features from MongoDB 4.0 Community Edition, Percona Server for MongoDB has other added features. These include the Percona Memory Engine storage engine, encrypted WiredTiger storage engineaudit loggingExternal LDAP Authentication with SASLhot backups, and enhanced query profiling.
