Percona has announced a preview of its 100% open source Database as a Service (DBaaS), which eliminates vendor lock-in and enables users to maintain control of their data.
As an alternative to public cloud and large enterprise database vendor DBaaS offerings, this on-demand self-service option provides users with a convenient and simple way to deploy databases quickly. Plus, using Percona Kubernetes Operators means it is possible to configure a database once, and deploy it anywhere.
The DBaaS supports Percona open source versions of MySQL, MongoDB and PostgreSQL. Critical database management operations such as backup, recovery, and patching will be managed through the Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) component of Percona DBaaS. PMM is completely open source and provides enhanced automation with monitoring and alerting to find, eliminate, and prevent outages, security issues, and slowdowns in performance across MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, and MariaDB databases.
Customer trials of Percona DBaaS will start this summer.
The Kubernetes Operator for Percona Distribution of PostgreSQL is now available in technical preview, making it easier than ever to deploy. The Operator streamlines the process of creating a database so that developers can gain access to resources faster, as well as then ongoing lifecycle management.
The new product announcements will be discussed in more detail at the annual Percona Live ONLINE Open Source Database Conference 2021 taking place May 12-13.
