  • No data lock-in or restrictive contracts
  • Reduced total cost of ownership (TCO)
  • Complete data sovereignty to meet any compliance requirement
  • Fully customizable database configurations
  • Right-sized database deployments
  • Frictionless developer self-service

Key features of Percona Everest

Database management via a single pane of glass
Percona Everest enables you to manage complex database environments through a single pane of glass or API.

  • Create, configure, deploy, update, and upgrade with zero downtime
  • Backup, restore, restart, suspend/resume, or delete database clusters

Percona Everest - Database Management

Complete customization
Customize load balancing settings, settings for network exposure, and resource settings like node count, instance type, CPU, memory, storage, etc.

Standardized database deployments
Create ready-to-use database clusters of enterprise-grade MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB, with the ability to customize to support a variety of topologies or deployments.

Percona Everest leverages Percona Operators to deploy Cloud-Native Percona Distributions.

Built-in observability tools
Benefit from built-in open source infrastructure monitoring to keep control of (and optimize) resource usage, health, and performance of database clusters.

How Percona Everest is designed

Percona Everest has two primary components

Percona Everest application with the UI

  • On the frontend, there is a Percona Everest UI which is developed using the Vite framework, React library and TypeScript language.
  • On the backend, requests from the frontend app are processed by Percona Everest Backend. It is an API developed in Golang using the Echo framework that sends requests to the Kubernetes API. You can also use the API directly for your needs.

Percona Everest CLI (everestctl)
You can install Percona Everest operators and components to your Kubernetes Cluster with the help of a console tool Percona Everest CLI (everestctl). Then, Percona Everest will create and manage database clusters. Everestctl is developed in Golang, and it is a built-in executable file.

Percona Everest does not supply a Kubernetes cluster; you’ll need to use your own for the deployment.

Percona Everest is currently in Beta

We invite you to become an early adopter and contribute to progress!
