High Performance and Availability with Percona Server for MySQL

Score 10 out of 10

Percona Server for MySQL is being used across our whole organization. We are running 50+ primary instances in our data center with DR replica's running on compute instances inside GCP in 2 different regions. Percona Server for MySQL solves our need for well-tested and stable MySQL instances with Percona doing additional testing to the upstream releases which gives that added level of stability that we need for the massive volumes of processing as well as the required performance in sharded instances.
  • A distributed database offering to scale writes with native sharding. Currently we make use of sharding managed by the application to scale writes. There is the option to place ProxySQL in front of the shards, but we need a true cloud native distributed option with an easy migration path. I would not say this is negative in terms of Percona Server for MySQL, but if Percona had a distributed database offering at some stage, we would follow Percona.
Percona Server for MySQL covers 100% of our requirements in terms of our OLTP traffic and provides the High Availability levels required through a typical primary and 2 replica's using semi-synchronous replication. We're able to scale our writes using sharding, but a true distributed database would be a great option on top of this. In terms of OLAP traffic, we leverage columns stores available, but Percona Server fairs well.
Plenty of help in the community forums and bug tracking, so it is easy to follow the progress of a bug or find solutions to the problem. Percona Server for MySQL releases are frequent and well documented and improves with each release.

Percona MySQL Server

Percona Server for MySQL is being used as a primary OLTP database in my current organization. We are using it across the whole organization (across the group of companies). Percona Server for MySQL is solving our problems to store and retrieve data in a high transactional environment.
  • Feature Rich: Percona Server for MySQL always has some additional features on top of MySQL.
  • Performance improvements: Additional performance
  • Integration with Native and Community tooling: It supports all native and community developed tooling for MySQL
  • Regressive performance test: Currently we are relying on MySQL's load testing. Percona should have its load testing result.
Percona Server for MySQL is best suited for any RDBMS workload(OLTP/OLAP). It's a drop-in replacement of MySQL. As of now, it lacks inbuild HA feature.
We are using opensource so we have not used customer support.
