Strategic Database Optimization and Tuning – because database performance matters!

At Percona, we literally wrote the book on high performance databases and our high performance blog is one of the most visited database resources on the Internet. You get the feeling we love this stuff.

The benefits of Percona’s Database Performance Optimization are far reaching and many of our proactive support customers are surprised to see the performance gains in databases that they thought were pretty good. Our experience (and we have a lot of it) has shown that over time the impact of complex database designs, usage, growth and upgrades can combine to put a drag on performance. It’s easy to miss it when you're in it day to day, but once discovered and corrected you can see noticeable improvements in database performance and resilience.

Percona can help maximize the performance of your database deployment by analyzing the status of your current configuration with a Database Performance Audit. As part of a Database Performance Audit, we will methodically, analytically review your servers and provide a detailed report of its current health as well as detail potential areas for improvement. Our analysis encompasses the full stack and provides you with detailed metrics and recommendations that go beyond the performance of your software to enable true database optimization. Advanced compression, query optimization, hybrid columnar compression, clustered DBMS, and our cost-based optimizer are among our large-scale data optimization techniques.

If you are ready to proactively improve the performance of your system, we can help with approaches such as offloading workload intensive operations to memcached. If your user base is growing rapidly and you need optimal performance at large scale, we can help you evaluate solutions. If performance problems lie outside of MySQL or NoSQL, such as in your web server, we can usually diagnose and report on that as well.

Most audits lead to substantial performance gains. Our Consulting professionals are available to help implement any of the performance recommendations, if you need additional manpower or expertise to improve the performance and response time of your system.
