Experience level: 
50 minutes conference
Percona Server 5.6 has now been GA for over six months and it has proven to be a real game changer for us. The release of Percona Server 5.6 (our enhanced, drop-in replacement for MySQL) not only provides stability and performance but also provides key features only available in Oracle’s MySQL 5.6 Enterprise Edition. As usual, Percona Server 5.6 is 100 percent Free and Open Source Software. This session will cover what’s new in Percona Server 5.6 that makes it the most powerful, highest performance, and most manageable free version of MySQL available today. I’ll also be comparing Percona Server 5.6 to MySQL 5.6, including the features that are the same or surpass those in Oracle MySQL 5.6 Enterprise Edition – including MySQL Enterprise Scalability, MySQL Enterprise Security, MySQL Enterprise Backup, and MySQL High Availability. We’re really pleased with the performance advantages of Percona Server 5.6. I’ll share details on the performance advantages of Percona Server 5.6 – which builds on the performance of Oracle MySQL 5.6 to outperform Oracle MySQL 5.6 Community Edition in situations with 150 concurrent threads and provides 4x the performance with 1,000 concurrent threads. It also provides significant performance gains in high R/W situations, which will also be detailed.
