The Percona Mission
Percona makes MySQL more valuable to customers and the community. Our MySQL Consulting, Support, Training, Remote DBA, and Server Development services as well as open source MySQL software help people achieve breakthrough results with MySQL.
We changed the MySQL marketplace by introducing pricing models that give customers access to services at a fraction of the cost, paying only for what they need. Our customers have choices. With Percona, they can purchase however best fits their budgets, be it annual contracts, bulk hourly purchases, onsite visits, or on-demand time in 15-minute increments.
Percona provides no-boundaries consulting. Our consulting contract has no off-limits areas and large and small customers alike have access to the same range of services and expertise. We consult on the full LAMP stack, from hardware to operating systems and right up through the database and web tiers. Because we are both broadly and deeply experienced, we can help you build complete solutions.
Our MySQL Consulting and Support teams are in a class of their own. Our expertise is visible in our widely read MySQL Performance blog and our book High Performance MySQL. We also create and maintain the oldest independent version of the MySQL database server (Percona Server), the only open-source hot backup solution for MySQL (Percona XtraBackup), and many more uniquely valuable software tools such as Percona Toolkit for MySQL users.
We do business with companies and individuals whose values we believe are compatible with ours. We are committed to an open source business model. We insist on remaining independent and neutral which leaves us free to provide the best possible service to all.
Percona was founded in August 2006 by Peter Zaitsev and Vadim Tkachenko and now employs a global network of experts with a staff of nearly 100 people. Our customer list is large and diverse, including Fortune 50 firms, popular websites, and small startups. We have over 1,800 customers and, although we do not reveal all of their names, chances are we're working with every large MySQL user you've heard about.
