Release date June 29, 2022
Installation Install Percona Distribution for MongoDB

Percona Distribution for MongoDB is a collection of solutions to run and operate your MongoDB efficiently with the data being consistently backed up.

Percona Distribution for MongoDB includes the following components:

  • Percona Server for MongoDB is a fully compatible source-available, drop-in replacement for MongoDB.

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

This release of Percona Distribution for MongoDB is based on Percona Server for MongoDB 4.2.21-21 and Percona Backup for MongoDB 1.8.0.

Release Highlights

  • This release of Percona Distribution for MongoDB provides the following improvements to the data-at-rest encryption using the Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) (tech preview feature 1):

    • the support of multiple KMIP servers as the failover to your setup

    • the ability to set KMIP client certificate passwords through a flag to simplify the migration from MongoDB Enterprise to Percona Server for MongoDB

  • Added support for Ubuntu 22.04 for Percona Server for MongoDB and Percona Backup for MongoDB.

The bug fixes, provided by MongoDB and included in Percona Server for MongoDB 4.2.20-20 and Percona Distribution for MongoDB 4.2.20 are the following:

  • Extended the getParameter command output with the information about a parameter to be enabled on runtime or only on startup

  • Ensured that applying schema validation rules to a non-empty collection prevents chunk migration for the data that existed before these rules were applied.

  • Improved the CollectionCatalog workflow by making hashing before taking a lock and adding an API for restoring after yield.

  • Fixed the issue with cache eviction causing deadlocks by allowing a transaction to time itself out

Percona Backup for MongoDB 1.8.0 improvements include the following:

  1. Tech Preview Features are not yet ready for enterprise use and are not included in support via SLA. They are included in this release so that users can provide feedback prior to the full release of the feature in a future GA release (or removal of the feature if it is deemed not useful). This functionality can change (APIs, CLIs, etc.) from tech preview to GA.
