Percona makes MySQL faster and more reliable for nearly 2,000 customers worldwide. Founded in 2006 to provide MySQL Consulting services, we’ve grown rapidly with the addition of MySQL Support, Remote DBA, Training, and Server Development services. Our global workforce of nearly 100 now provides 24x7, worldwide coverage to our customer base of leading MySQL users.

Our recent conference, the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2013, in Santa Clara, California had over 1,000 attendees who came together for 110+ keynotes, tutorials, and breakout sessions plus networking receptions and other community events. Diamond sponsors HP, Amazon Web Services, and Continuent provided keynote speakers who joined invited keynote speakers from Oracle and 451 Research.

Percona also provides open source software which helps MySQL users:

•  Percona Server is an enhanced drop-in replacement for MySQL

•  Percona Toolkit allows DBAs to more easily manage MySQL and Percona Server

•  Percona XtraBackup is a hot backup solution for MySQL

•  Percona XtraDB Cluster is a high availability and high scalability solution for MySQL users

We are very positive on the future of MySQL. Matt Aslett of 451 Research delivered a keynote at our Percona Live conference in which he estimated the MySQL market will grow to nearly $1 billion by 2016, nearly a four-fold increase. We work with large and emerging companies who are scaling MySQL and need to save money and increase uptime, all areas in which we can help with our MySQL services.
