Percona Backup for MongoDB 1.3.4
Percona Backup for MongoDB 1.3.4 was released on November 19, 2020. It is a distributed, low-impact solution for consistent backups of MongoDB sharded clusters and replica sets. An improvement in this release include the addition of a request timeout to the S3 downloader during the restore, and a bug fix (reported by user pedroalb) restores fails with conflicting namespace destinations.
Percona XtraBackup 2.4.21
On November 12, 2020, Percona XtraBackup 2.4.21 was released. It enables MySQL backups without blocking user queries, making it ideal for companies with large data sets and mission-critical applications that cannot tolerate long periods of downtime. Offered free as an open source solution, it drives down backup costs while providing unique features for MySQL backups. Improvements include the introduction of a debug option to print the redo log records scanned and applied, and a new feature (Thanks to user rluisr for reporting this issue) offers xbcloud: support storage_class option with –storage=s3. In addition, there were several bug fixes, which can be seen in the release notes.
