Optimization for success

As data becomes a more critical component of success, businesses are finding that high performance databases are hard to build and keep tuned as requirements change.

With Percona Care, no matter how big your website or embedded applications are, and no matter what your price point is, you can ensure that your database environment is fully optimized, always available, and supported by the most trusted team of developers and DBAs in the business.

Percona also supports Percona XtraDB Cluster and other High Availability Cloud architectures and tools. We use a variety of software solutions to deliver optimal operations including Percona XtraBackup and Percona Monitoring Plugins.
