UK-based Easy Payment Gateway Ltd., a premier provider of online payment systems, is relying on Percona Consulting to conduct a Percona Database Performance Audit to improve the performance of the company’s Percona XtraDB Cluster environment.

Easy Payment Gateway makes it easy for merchants to add multiple payment solutions and credit card processing to their online business. The system offers real-time reporting, transaction routing and fraud management, so optimal database performance is a critical success factor. To help ensure this performance, the company has relied on Percona XtraDB Cluster for a number of years. Percona XtraDB Cluster is a robust, cost-effective, open source MySQL® clustering solution for powering highly available applications in the most demanding public, private and hybrid cloud environments.

When IT administrators noted a general drop in query performance and an out-of-memory error during schema changes, they turned to a familiar partner, Percona, to identify and resolve any inefficiencies and bottlenecks, and optimize overall performance. The company previously relied on Percona Consulting to prepare for a major upgrade and was very happy with the recommendations, so it was an easy decision to rely on Percona again to audit the performance of the company’s 3-node Percona XtraDB Cluster environment. The audit will include a documented review of the entire database server stack—from infrastructure to the schema, to queries—along with recommended improvements.

Our past experiences with Percona Consulting have been stellar, so we are confident we will obtain the most thorough review of our environment and the most appropriate recommendations to meet our specific needs. Easy access to Percona Consulting’s expertise provides us with peace of mind that we will be able to deliver on our promise of a great customer experience as we continue to grow.
