A week ago we launched our first GA release of Percona Server 5.6 and it’s 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.
On Oct. 16 I’ll lead a webinar that will present 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. The one-hour webinar starts at 1 p.m. Pacific time Wednesday. You can register here.
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.
So please register now to reserve your spot and I’ll see you on Wednesday (Oct. 16).
