The Challenge

When deploying their latest application, Tango Telecom wanted to avoid any downtime and performance problems, which could threaten their reputation and profitability. Finding a reliable technology which ensured high availability and performance was crucial.

To combat potential issues, Tango Telecom deployed their business-critical application the Tango DRE on Percona’s cost-effective and robust MySQL clustering solution, Percona XtraDB Cluster.

Tango Telecom selected Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) as the best fit for their business needs after extensive research.
