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
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.
