Percona software is available to use free of charge, with Commercial Support & Maintenance available. Come join us for this free hour long webinar to learn about how you can turbo-charge your MySQL installation.

You may have heard that there are now alternative releases of MySQL available, besides the packages you can download from, or fetch via your operating system vendor, but where do you start?

In this presentation we will outline what changes; where you can get immediate benefit from switching to Percona Software; and are there any incompatibilities in switching, or if you want to switch back:

  • Percona Server - A replacement for MySQL that is much faster and more scalable, easier to monitor and tune, and has features to make operational tasks easier.
  • Percona XtraDB - An enhanced version of the InnoDB storage engine, which performs better on modern hardware.
  • Xtrabackup - The world's only open-source, free MySQL hot backup software that performs non-blocking backups for InnoDB, XtraDB, and MyISAM databases.
