  • Faster than other server solutions
  • Installation and configuration process is easy from the user's standpoint
  • Easy to learn and good support
  • The performance and throughput can be improved in big databases
  • Documentation for the end user can be improved
  • The server time response can be improved since it can be a bit slow when you are doing multiple requests in parallel

  • 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.

  • 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.
