Overall Satisfaction with Percona Server for MySQL

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.
  • Ease of use
  • Scalability
  • Performance
  • Community tooling Support
  • Cloud native
Percona Server for MySQL Stacks up against all of these competitors. We choose Percona server for MySQL due to these reasons: open source, community support, scalability, and vendor locking. We were looking for an open-source database that is scalable and supported by the community.


We are using opensource so we have not used customer support.
It's a perfect solution for any RDBMS requirement (OLTP/ OLAP). People always have some misconceptions about opensource software. It's performant, scaleable, and reliable.
