Percona Delivers Percona Server for MongoDB

Percona, a provider of enterprise-class MySQL and MongoDB solutions and services, is introducing Percona Server for MongoDB, an enhanced, open source, fully compatible drop-in replacement for MongoDB Community Edition that offers additional enterprise features and lower total cost of ownership. Completely open source and free to download and use, Percona Server for MongoDB offers all the features of MongoDB 3.0 Community Edition, along with two additional storage engine options – PerconaFT and Facebook’s RocksDB – and enterprise-grade functionality, including Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) and advanced auditing.

According to Percona, as an enhanced drop-in replacement for MongoDB 3.0, Percona Server for MongoDB includes the features and benefits of MongoDB 3.0 Community Edition, as well as the storage engines distributed with MongoDB, MMAP v1 and WiredTiger, in addition to two storage engine options not supported by MongoDB: PerconaFT and Facebook’s RocksDB.  Percona Server for MongoDB also includes Percona TokuBackup and supports full online backups of PerconaFT; includes a SASL Authentication plugin, a feature found only in MongoDB Advanced Enterprise Edition; and also includes an audit plugin, another feature found only in MongoDB Advanced Enterprise Edition. The plug-in delivers security and compliance benefits to organizations by providing the ability to track and query the database interactions of users or applications, a critical feature for the compliance requirements of SOX, HIPAA, and SEC 17a.

 “With Percona Server for MongoDB, we have done the same thing for the MongoDB community that we did for the MySQL community, make it easier and more cost effective for organizations to reach their business goals through an enhanced drop-in replacement that is free to download and use and that delivers better performance and lower TCO,” said Peter Zaitsev, co-founder and CEO of Percona. “Percona also provides access to the best and most cost-effective source of enterprise-level support for MongoDB and Percona Server for MongoDB.”
