Installing Percona Server for MongoDB

Percona provides installation packages of Percona Server for MongoDB for the most 64-bit Linux distributions. Find the full list of supported platforms on the Percona Software and Platform Lifecycle page.

System requirements

Percona Server for MongoDB has the same system requirements as the MongoDB Community Edition.

Starting in MongoDB 5.0, mongod, mongos, and the legacy mongo shell are supported on x86_64 platforms that must meet these minimum micro-architecture requirements:

  • Only Oracle Linux running the Red Hat Compatible Kernel (RHCK) is supported. MongoDB does not support the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK).

  • MongoDB 5.0 and above requires use of the AVX instruction set, available on select Intel and AMD processors.


Percona Server for MongoDB requires the ARMv8.2-A or later microarchitecture.

Currently, only Docker images are available.
