optimize your databases for peak performanceOur latest Solution Brief uses our relationship with Patreon to detail the ways that Percona services work together to provide customers with a complete database infrastructure solution.

Last year Patreon enlisted Percona’s help with their MySQL databases. Utilizing the full range of Percona Services (Managed Services, Support, Consulting, and Training) has allowed Patreon to make the most of their database infrastructure.

Percona worked with Patreon to establish a long-term plan based on their total cost of ownership and future business direction. This plan involved moving from DBaaS to EC2 (virtual machine backed) database deployments.

Percona planned and performed Patreon’s database migration, which went smoothly, with little-to-no disruption to their application. This move enabled Patreon to save over 50% of their infrastructure cost on a monthly basis.

Our Solution Brief discusses how moving from the DBaaS model and relying on Percona’s expertise enabled Patreon to fully realize the value of their databases.

In this document, we cover a number of important considerations, including:

  • Supporting Multiple Database Technologies
  • Applying an Integrated Strategy
  • The Benefits of Migrating From DBaaS
