Today many infrastructure teams are turning to DBaaS technologies to meet the ever-increasing pressure to quickly and consistently deliver database services to application developers.

Our vision is to provide a truly open source solution that won’t lock companies into one vendor. A single pane of glass allowing users to easily manage open source database infrastructures, featuring a self-service experience that enables fast and consistent open source database deployment.

Our goal is to deliver the enterprise benefits our customers are looking for, including:

  • A single interface to deploy and manage open source databases on-prem, in the cloud, or across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
  • The ability to configure a database once and deploy it anywhere.
  • Critical database management operations, such as backup, recovery, and patching.
  • Enhanced automation and advisory services to find, eliminate, and prevent outages, security issues, and slowdowns.
  • A viable alternative to public cloud and large enterprise database vendor DBaaS offerings, eliminating vendor lock-in.

The Preview of Database as a Service (DBaaS) in Percona Monitoring and Management is Now Live!

The Preview is a year-long program consisting of four phases. Each three-month phase will focus on a different area of participant feedback. Preview participants can be involved in as many phases as they like.

Preview of Database as a Service (DBaaS) in Percona Monitoring and Management
Phase One Details for Interested Participants

Phase one will focus on:

  1. Gathering feedback which allows us to understand the applicable user personas and the goals and objectives required in their day-to-day roles.
  2. Gathering feedback on the user experience, specifically involving the creation, editing, and deleting of database clusters and the databases within those clusters. We will also gather feedback on the management of those clusters and the monitoring of added database servers and nodes.

We are starting with a focus on database deployment and management features, as they help users improve their productivity.

Other details to note...

  • Phase one of the Preview will run until April 2021.
  • Phase one requires around 10 hours of self-paced activities, facilitated through the Percona Forum.
    • All Community Preview participant feedback will be captured within the Percona Forum.
    • Community Preview participant questions will be facilitated through the Percona Forum.
