Percona introduced multiple database distributions and service offerings to help improve data management, availability, and security. This launch includes Managed Database Service provision for MongoDB and new distribution for MongoDB. Moreover, Percona also launched the latest version of Percona Monitoring and Management, which includes a new Security Threat Tool.
Percona Distribution for MongoDB and PostgreSQL
The new Security Threat Tool runs daily checks for common database security issues for a range of open-source databases, including MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB. The new version of Percona Monitoring and Management provides initial support for external services enabling the export of existing metrics from third-party systems for improved monitoring and visibility across database environments.
Matt Yonkovit, Chief Experience Officer at Percona, said,
“When we looked at what companies were asking for around cloud, we saw there was a significant gap between available database-as-a-service offerings and more traditional consulting services. At Percona, we combine the best of both to help customers reduce costs and operational overhead, and significantly improve performance for their database instances. Rather than simply guaranteeing uptime, we help companies get the most out of their databases, whether you are running PostgreSQL, MongoDB, MariaDB, or MySQL.”
The newly released Percona Distribution for MongoDB is a fully open-source enterprise solution based on Percona Server for MongoDB. Additionally, Percona Backup for MongoDB maximizes performance while being more cost-effective for teams to run overtime. Percona Distribution for MongoDB:
- Combines Percona Memory Engine for in-memory storage, HashiCorp Vault for data access control, data at rest encryption, audit logging, external LDAP authentication and hot backup support to meet enterprise requirements around application data security and availability.
- Provides reliability and high-performance support for companies that want to run MongoDB without being tied to specific expensive proprietary software options.
- Delivers consistent backup and restore functionality for clusters and non-sharded data sets.
- Supports Kubernetes deployments, making it easier for developers to integrate their applications and database operations. This allows teams to easily create identical environments across all the elements of the software development lifecycle from development, test and QA into production, reducing DevOps process times and automating database instance creation where needed.
The Security Threat Tool allows users to run daily checks, get alerts and remediate common database security issues to reduce the risk of data exposure. According to Yonkovit, this tool allows users to quickly identify potential security issues with database instances, and fix them before any issues occur.
