Percona, an open source database software and services provider, celebrated record growth for Q3 2021, including 44 percent Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) growth year over year. With more than 10 million downloads of its open source projects and tools, Percona enables developers and database administrators in their roles powering business applications.
Percona brings together database distributions alongside open source tools and contributions to build enterprise-ready database products. This model represents the potential of the open source approach to make a real difference in how developers build the applications that their companies need and how DBAs manage their database environment most effectively.
According to Percona, they have continued to take an independent approach to open source and databases, collaborating with a wide range of organizations across industries. Since inception, the company’s services and support expertise for managing, scaling, and optimizing database performance has been infrastructure agnostic. This supports customers to achieve value faster, deliver better availability for their applications and achieve flexibility in deployment to help their organizations win. Percona has recently expanded its approach, including the recent announcement of its new unified Percona Platform for multiple database distributions, management tools, private Database as a Service (DBaaS), and support.
“Our future as a company is based on packaging up our skills and experience in new ways, beginning with Percona Platform. The platform will make it easier for developers and DBAs to get the value of the work that we have put in over the years, bringing everything together in one place. We’ll continue to support customers running individual databases, whether they are running our distributions or not, as this is part of the value that open source provides to the market, as well as expanding how we deliver our expertise over time,” said Ann Schlemmer, President at Percona.
Percona was founded to support companies that wanted to run open source databases for their applications and remain fully committed to the ideals of free and open source software. The company celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2021, and has grown by embracing remote work and flexibility from the start. Today, Percona has staff based across 42 countries.
