Percona is pleased to announce the release of Percona Distribution for MongoDB. This release combines two existing Percona products, Percona Server for MongoDB and Percona Backup for MongoDB, into one simple to install package. The distribution is an open-source enterprise MongoDB solution bringing together the key features and functionality that enterprises need such as:
- Improved data security leveraging access and audit controls, protecting your sensitive data in transit and at rest no matter where it is stored
- Assured data availability, reliability, and scalability with a solution that delivers the elasticity and data protection features you need to meet your enterprise application needs
- Simplified development of new applications with a document database that enables you to alter and grow your database to meet business needs
Percona Server for MongoDB extends the functionality of the MongoDB 4.2 Community Edition by including the Percona Memory Engine storage engine, encrypted WiredTiger storage engine, audit logging, external LDAP authentication, and enhanced query profiling. Percona Server for MongoDB requires no changes to MongoDB applications or code.
Percona Backup for MongoDB gives you an easy command-line interface to perform a consistent backup/restore of clusters and non-sharded replica sets. It uses S3 (or S3-compatible) object storage for the remote store. Percona Backup for MongoDB can improve your cluster consistency guarantee compared to the filesystem snapshot or mongodump method, saving you time and effort.
Percona Distribution for MongoDB also works with Percona Kubernetes Operator for MongoDB to support cloud-native applications. The Operator delivers consistent and easy to reproduce environments, easing rollout concerns.
Enterprises looking to achieve optimum performance with MongoDB can rely on Percona to deliver high-performance and reliability through Percona Distribution for MongoDB, and support, consulting, and managed service offerings for MongoDB.
