Percona Backup for MongoDB Documentation

Percona Backup for MongoDB is a distributed, low-impact solution for achieving consistent backups of MongoDB sharded clusters and replica sets.

Percona Backup for MongoDB supports Percona Server for MongoDB and MongoDB Community v3.6 or higher with MongoDB Replication enabled.

The Percona Backup for MongoDB project inherited from and replaces mongodb_consistent_backup, which is no longer actively developed or supported.


  • Backup and restore for both classic, non-sharded replicasets and clusters
  • Simple command-line management utility
  • Oplog capture that provides data consistency for any replica set
  • Oplog capture synchronization in cluster backups provides cross-cluster consistency.
  • Simple, integrated-with-MongoDB authentication
  • No need to install a coordination service on a separate server.
  • Use any S3-compatible storage
  • Users with classic, locally-mounted remote filesystem backup servers can use ‘filesystem’ instead of ‘s3’ storage type.
