As a mobile security company, Lookout’s database environment is crucial to providing customers with security assurance for mobile devices. Lookout uses the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform with Aurora as their main database software

Lookout needed to ensure that as they grow and increase their customer base, their database environment remained responsive and available – with an eye to increasing efficiency and more effectively using their AWS deployment.

Lookout engaged Percona to:

  • Audit the AWS database environment architecture and performance
  • Reduce their cloud footprint to lower costs and complexity
  • Monitor crucial database environment metrics in order to guarantee uptime
- Michael Fortson, Director of Engineering at Lookout:

“Combining Percona Managed Services with Amazon RDS and Amazon Aurora enabled Lookout to shift its focus away from maintaining servers and worrying about data replication, towards delivering new features and capabilities to its customers.”
