Percona Is Now ‘Partner Ready’ on the VMware Tanzu Platform
Following our announcement of Percona Joining the VMware Technology Alliance Partner Program, we are pleased to announce the addition of Percona Kubernetes Operator for Percona Server for MongoDB on the VMware Tanzu Platform after attaining Partner Ready validation.
The VMware Partner Ready program allows VMware partners to test and validate their software solutions to ensure they interoperate with specific VMware platforms. VMware Tanzu is a portfolio of products that enable enterprises to modernize their applications and infrastructure to continuously deliver better software to production.
VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG) provides a consistent, upstream-compatible implementation of Kubernetes, tested, signed, and supported by VMware. This enables customers to access enterprise-ready Kubernetes solutions to simplify their operations across multi-cloud infrastructure.
By completing the Partner Ready process and achieving Partner Ready designation, Percona has confirmed Percona Kubernetes Operator for Percona Server for MongoDB interoperability with VMware technologies.
Percona is responsible for managing any customer support requests from this combined solution, so users can be assured that they are being supported by the leading open source software experts.
Using Percona Kubernetes Operator for Percona Server for MongoDB with TKG
Organizations using Percona Kubernetes Operator for Percona Server for MongoDB with TKG can create Percona Server for MongoDB environments that are highly-available, self-healing, and autonomously deployed according to Percona Best Practices for MongoDB and Kubernetes.
Businesses can change the size of their replica set by altering the size key in the Custom Resource options configuration, and Percona Monitoring and Management can be easily deployed to monitor the replica set.
Users can also automate backups, perform an on-demand backup at any time, and support simple restores. Finally, they can set a node as an arbiter, which participates in elections for a new primary node but does not store any data. The Automate node recovery feature uses self-healing capability to automatically recover from the failure of a single Percona Server for MongoDB node.
We are delighted to be working with VMware, to bring our leading open source software to a wider audience. We look forward to adding additional Percona software solutions to VMware Tanzu in the near future.
