What is Percona Platform?
Percona Platform provides a unified database experience that includes open source solutions, support, services, training, and automatic insights for your database environments. Percona Platform brings together distributions of MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB alongside a range of open source tools for data backup, availability, and management.
It also includes Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM) for database management, monitoring, and automated insights, making it easier to manage database deployments.
To start using Percona Platform, you need to:
- install the latest version of Percona Monitoring and Management (PMM). Outgoing internet access is required for PMM.
- enable the telemetry to access intelligence features, like Percona Advisors
The complete list of prerequisites and getting started instructions for PMM can be found here.
A Percona Account gives you seamless access across all Percona properties, as well as cloud-connected insights for PMM. By registering an account, you gain access to the best open source solutions, support, services, and insights to run database environments at peak performance in the cloud or on-premises without vendor lock-in or escalating costs. You will access all Percona Platform benefits at no cost: unified access to open source Percona Platform software (database servers, backup extensions, and observability and management tools for MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, and other popular technologies), Percona Advisors, Private DBaaS, K8s operators, knowledge base and self-paced training.
