I’d like to congratulate Canonical with the new Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) Release, it really looks like a great release, and I say it having my own agenda 🙂 It looks even more great because it comes with a full line of Percona Software.
If you install Ubuntu 14.04 and run
aptitude search you will find:
- Percona Toolkit
- Percona XtraBackup
- Percona XtraDB Cluster
- Percona Server (as part of Percona XtraDB Cluster installation)
Percona Toolkit and Percona XtraBackup are up to the latest versions, but Percona Server and Percona XtraDB Cluster comes with 5.5 versions, and it is in line with default MySQL version, which again is 5.5.
I expect this release will make it much easier for users to get familiar with our software, so you can go and try this today!
