Percona Server is a backwards-compatible replacement for MySQL that is much faster and more scalable, easier to monitor and tune, and has features to make operational tasks easier. It is designed to excel for cloud computing, support NoSQL access, and take full advantage of modern hardware such as SSD and Flash storage.
