Percona Blog Poll: What Percona Software Are You Using?

Percona Blog Poll: What Percona Software Are You Using?


Percona SoftwareThis blog post contains a poll that helps us find out what Percona software the open source database community is using.

Nearly 20 years ago, Netscape released the source code for its Netscape Communicator web browser. This marked one of the biggest moments in “open source” history. The formation of The Open Source Initiative happened shortly after that. Bruce Perens, one of the working group’s founders, adapted his Free Software Guidelines as the official Open Source Definition.

Since then, open source software has gone from being the exception in large projects and enterprises, to being a normal part of huge deployments and daily business activities. Open source software is used by some of the biggest online companies: Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc. Many of these companies depend on open source software as part of their business model.

Percona’s mission is to champion unbiased open source database solutions. As part of this mission, we provide open source software, completely free of charge and for reuse. We developed our Percona Server for MySQL and Percona Server for MongoDB solutions to not only be drop-in replacements for existing open source software, but often incorporate “enterprise” features from upstream.

We’ve also recognized a need for a database clustering and backup solutions, and created Percona XtraDB Cluster and Percona XtraBackup to address those concerns.

Beyond database software, Percona has created management and monitoring tools like Percona Monitoring and Management that not only help DBAs with day-to-day tasks, but also use metrics to find out how best to configure, optimize and architect a database environment to best meet the needs of applications and websites.

What we’d like to know is which of our software products are you currently using in your database environment? Are you using just database software, just management and monitoring tools, or a combination of both? As Percona makes plans for the year, we’d like to know what the community is using, what they find helpful, and how we can best allocate our resources to address those needs. We are always looking for the best ways to invest in and grow the Percona software and tools people use.

Complete the survey below by selecting all the options that apply.

        Not a problem, I just mentioned it as it would skew the results otherwise. Thanks for fixing!
