Percona is pleased to welcome Stewart Smith to the team. Stewart does not need an extended introduction for MySQL Community, but just in case: Stewart has a long history with both the MySQL and Drizzle code bases. He’s been one of the core Drizzle developers since the start of the project (working on Drizzle for Sun and then Rackspace), he maintains HailDB and previously worked for MySQL (and then Sun) on MySQL Cluster (NDB).

Stewart joins Percona to lead our development team and will take lead role in both Percona Server and Percona XtraBackup products. You can certainly expect more mutual exchange of features and ideas between Drizzle, Percona Server, XtraDB and XtraBackup to make all products stronger.

If you want to hear more about about Drizzle and Percona Server you are welcome to attend Percona Live in New York, on May, 26th, 2011 where Stewart will present “Drizzle 7, GA and Supported: Current & Future Features”. There you will meet the Percona team and have chance to learn about Percona Server, XtraBackup and Drizzle first hand from our experts.
