Overall Satisfaction with Percona Server for MongoDB

Being an open-source solution, it makes it easy for us to use it in research projects. In our Research department, we have been using the Percona Server for MongoDB as an alternative for MongoDB and for the implementation of solutions-oriented to big data because it offers great performance to process large amounts of data.
  • High performance
  • Integration with other tools and services
  • Big data projects oriented
  • High availability and scalability
  • The learning curve makes it a bit tricky to use at first.
  • Documentation is an aspect to improve, especially for people who are just starting out.
  • At the interface level, the user experience could be improved.
  • It offers a good alternative solution compared with other open source databases.
  • We have many resources at the documentation level and other tools that help the integration with different programming languages.
At the performance level, it is similar to other solutions such as MongoDB and Percona Server for MySQL. and at the customization level, it offers better support for the development of specific solutions that seek good performance in transactions.

One aspect to improve is the user experience since sometimes the steps to take are not clear and the user may need to review some of the actions before continuing with the next ones. Another aspect to improve is the documentation and support for developers who want to know the tool.
It offers good support for the implementation of solutions in the public and on-premises cloud and integration with other services such as Hashicorp Vault for data encryption. Also, it offers support for different compatible programming languages such as C, C ++, Java, as well as offering good support for the persistence of schema-free data and the possibility of saving data in memory.


It offers good support for the implementation of solutions in the public and on-premises cloud and integration with other services such as Hashicorp Vault for data encryption. One of the main advantages is the ease of configuration, in addition to offering transaction support for the different operations and scalability of the servers.
