Percona Care Ultimate Managed Service Ensures Optimized MySQL Database Performance to Enable Highly Responsive, Up-to-Date Web Applications
DUBLIN, Ireland – PERCONA LIVE OPEN SOURCE DATABASE CONFERENCE EUROPE – Sept. 27, 2017 – Percona, the company that delivers enterprise-class MySQL® and MongoDB® solutions and services,today announced that Pepper, the world’s largest community deal platform, has selected Percona to manage its open source database performance.
Pepper.com’s around-the-clock community seeks and finds the best offers in fashion, electronics, traveling and much more. With 500 million page views, over 25 million users and over 65,000 user submitted deals per month across communities in America, Europe and Asia, Pepper has quickly risen to be the largest community deal platform worldwide.
When Pepper.com’s primary MySQL database administrator left the company, Pepper decided to shift to a managed service to maintain uptime and responsiveness. Having previously attended Percona Live Europe, the premier European open source database conference, as well as being avid readers of the Percona Database Performance Blog, the Pepper team turned to Percona for open source database remote managed service expertise.
“Guaranteeing database performance is key to making sure our web applications are responsive and up-to-date,” said Pavel Genov, Head of Software Development at Pepper.com. “ Percona Care Ultimate helps us to achieve these objectives.”
Pepper was already using Percona Server for MySQL. Following a Percona Database Performance Audit to review the Pepper.com environment, architecture and setup, Percona XtraBackup was deployed to provide online non-blocking, tightly compressed, highly secure backups.
Today, Pepper.com knows database issues will be handled immediately by Percona’s experts, who continually monitor and manage the database and can support environment and architecture changes.
