Percona Server and XtraBackup available on Solaris


I am happy to announce that Percona Server and Percona XtraBackup are now available for the Solaris platform!

  • You can download the latest Percona Server 5.1.55-12.6 stable release from our download area.
  • As for Percona XtraBackup, we made Solaris binaries for the upcoming XtraBackup-1.6 release, and they are available from “pre-release” directory.

There are couple features not available in Solaris build of Percona Server: Response Time Distribution (it depends on GCC platform specific functions) , HandlerSocket ( compilation issues on Solaris), Maatkit UDFs.

I want to say a special thanks to Joyent (a cloud computing provider) for Solaris resources and help with building binaries. Joyent provides templates for Percona Server and Percona XtraBackup by request.

    Are you planning to make Solaris builds for new versions of Percona? The last Solaris version of Percona is 5.1 but Percona 5.7 is more effective.

    May be you can tell how to compile Percona Server 5.7 on Oracle Solaris 11.3?

      We have no plans to provide builds for Solaris. It is not open platform anymore and we can’t download it.
      Furthermore, you are first who asked about Solaris since 2011 – there is practically zero interest to Solaris builds.
