We were happy TokuMX users and recently migrated to Percona Server for MongoDB, using the PerconaFT storage engine.
Now it seems that this storage engine got deprecated.
“The PerconaFT storage engine has been deprecated and will not be available in future releases.”
Any specific reasons behind that decision?
From https://www.percona.com/blog/2016/01/27/mongodb-revs-you-up-what-storage-engine-is-right-for-you-part-4/ I understand that: “An ideal fit for the PerconaFT storage engine is a system with varied workloads, where predictable vertical scaling is required in addition to the horizontal scaling provide MongoDB. Furthermore, the ability of PerconaFT to maintain performance while compressing – along with support for multiple compression algorithms (snappy, quicklz, zlib and lzma) – make it one of the best options for users looking to optimize their data footprint.”
What is the recommendation for PerconaFT users now that this engine got deprecated?
