I’m delighted to announce a partnership with New Relic. The press release has the details (all new Gold and Platinum support contracts get free New Relic subscriptions) but I wanted to add some of the behind-the-scenes context.
The quote from me in the press release is a real quote: I really have been telling people for years that they should use New Relic. I even wrote it in the new edition of High Performance MySQL.
Why? Simple. People who use New Relic are more able to self-service. And anytime I can point people to the best solution for them, even if that means NOT using Percona, I do that.
I am, personally, very happy that we’re doing this partnership. We don’t associate our name with another company lightly. But New Relic is an ideal fit for Percona and our customers.
