Databases are better when they can run themselves. CockroachDB is a SQL database that automates scaling and recovery. Check it out here.

Docker is an incredibly popular tool for deploying software, so we decided to provide a Percona Docker image for both Percona Server MySQL and Percona Server for MongoDB.

We want to create an easy way to try our products.

There are actually some images available from https://hub.docker.com/_/percona/, but these images are provided by Docker itself, not from Percona.

In our images, we provide all the varieties of storage engines available in Percona Server (MySQL/MongoDB).

Our images are available from https://hub.docker.com/r/percona/.

The simplest way to get going is to run the following:

docker run --name ps -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=secret -d percona/percona-server:latest

for Percona Server/MySQL, and:

docker run --name psmdb -d percona/percona-server-mongodb:latest

for Percona Server/MongoDB.

It is very easy to try the different storage engines that come with Percona Server for MongoDB. For example, to use RocksDB, run:

docker run --name psmdbrocks -d percona/percona-server-mongodb:latest
--storageEngine=RocksDB

or PerconaFT:

docker run --name psmdbperconaft -d percona/percona-server-mongodb:latest
--storageEngine=PerconaFT

We are looking for any feedback you’d like to provide—if this is useful and what improvements we could make.

Databases should be easy to deploy, easy to use, and easy to scale. If you agree, you should check out CockroachDB, a scalable SQL database built for businesses of every size. Check it out here.
