Ensures Data Consistency at a Lower Cost

PLEASANTON, California - April 3, 2012 -- Percona LLC, the company that makes MySQL faster and more reliable, today announced the release of Percona XtraDB Cluster, a new approach to high availability MySQL. A breakthrough MySQL technology, Percona XtraDB Cluster is the only free, open source MySQL solution on the market today that uses the Codership Galera replication library—providing high performance, synchronous, multi-master replication—to guarantee data consistency. XtraDB Cluster enables high availability at lower costs, including no investment in the solution itself, reduced costs for developing the high availability architecture, and reduced training and education costs.

Percona MySQL Support also now features a Percona XtraDB Cluster option. With this Percona Support option, users of Percona XtraDB Cluster are assured of high quality, cost effective, 24X7 support for their production MySQL deployments.


  • Percona XtraDB Cluster ensures data consistency for high performance MySQL deployments.
  • Percona XtraDB Cluster is a free, open source solution.
  • Key Percona XtraDB Cluster features include synchronous replication, automatic node provisioning, and support for multi-master replication and parallel applying events (known as “parallel replication”).
  • Percona has made it easy to migrate from MySQL/InnoDB installations to Percona XtraDB Cluster because Percona XtraDB Cluster is based on the well-understood InnoDB/XtraDB Storage engine.
  • Percona XtraDB Cluster is cloud friendly. With significantly lower network bandwidth and latency requirements than other solutions, it can easily operate over conventional networks and the cloud.
  • Percona MySQL Support now includes a Percona XtraDB Cluster option, which provides high quality, cost effective, 24x7 support for production MySQL deployments using this technology.


Seppo Jaakola, CEO for Codership Oy

“We are extremely pleased that Percona has incorporated Galera replication into Percona XtraDB Cluster.

Vadim Tkachenko, Co-founder and CTO for Percona LLC

“Percona XtraDB Cluster is an important milestone for the MySQL community. This relatively easy-to-use, high availability solution opens the door to deploying MySQL for a range of new high performance, mission critical applications, including in the cloud where high availability is desperately needed.”
