Moz Uses Percona to Optimize the Architecture and Find Slow Queries in Their Database Environment

Moz is a software company that believes there's a better way to do marketing. They focus on search engine optimization (SEO), one of the least understood and least transparent aspects of great marketing, and they see that as an opportunity.

Moz needed help with fast master/slave failover and slow query visualization.

Moz leveraged Percona to:

  • Improve active/passive failover time to maintain high availability for customers
  • Find, examine and analyze slow queries in their database architecture
  • Employ expert technical design and maintenance in order to improve database architecture

Providing our customers with current and relevant data that is accurate and up-to-date is the only way to stay relevant in our business. This means our databases have to be always available. Percona’s expertise in database architecture for both MySQL and MongoDB allows us to implement the best failover solution, and provides us with a way to continually monitor our environment so that our customers can make the business decisions they need to.
