Extend Your MySQL 5.6 Support with Percona and Upgrade on Your Schedule

MySQL 5.6 reached EOL (end of life) in February 2021. This means there will be no more updates, and no more security fixes for discovered vulnerabilities. We know that sometimes it can take time to adjust your application to be compatible with MySQL 5.7 or higher, or maybe you planned to decommission your application but life just got in the way.


If you’re not ready to give up MySQL 5.6, we’ve got you covered!

Percona offers MySQL 5.6 Post EOL Support, which will allow you to run MySQL 5.6 based applications for up to three more years! This allows you to access critical security patches, stay in compliance, and migrate or upgrade your database on your schedule.

Subscribing to Percona Support for MySQL with the MySQL 5.6 Post EOL Support Option will provide you with all the amazing features Percona Support offers, along with coverage for Percona Server for MySQL 5.6 post EOL.
