Percona Server with XtraDB for Software-as-a-Service Application Databases

The Software as a Service (SaaS) deployment model is popular with customers, but SaaS databases are often difficult for providers to manage, due to the unique stresses placed upon them. The open-source MySQL database server can suffer from performance and operational limitations in SaaS deployments. Percona Server with XtraDB is an enhanced version of MySQL that solves many of these problems. It enables SaaS providers to scale effectively and economically.
