Percona’s services team is made up of superheroes that make sure your database is running at peak performance. Now we’re ready to reveal the identity of the first two team members.

The first is funny, friendly, quick-witted, supporting, fast and courteous – but still able to get the job done with amazing competence. Who is this champion?
