- Ray Slakinski, Lead Developer, Operations at Wattpad:

“At Wattpad we have a lot of realtime updates and user interaction – we’re a social media site for writers. We need reads, writes, and our database workload to match our Amazon RDS provisioning. Percona helped us to validate that queries were tuned correctly, and that we were getting the most out of our cloud environment.”
