Tim Mace, Head of Data Engineering, Man Alpha Technology, said: “We look forward to working with Percona and accessing its technical team’s expertise and high-quality service. We saw a need for support for our business processes that depend on MongoDB, but simultaneously wanted to retain our approach to how we architect and scale our infrastructure to meet the needs of our business. Percona demonstrated a long track record of expertise in the space, with in-depth domain knowledge and open source tooling that meets the demanding requirements we have today.”

Martin James, Vice President Sales EMEA & APAC, Percona added, “Companies want to use the best technologies to run their operations, and they need the best support and expertise to get the most value from those technologies. Percona’s independent approach and expertise in open source database software means that companies can rely on us to achieve their goals over time. With Percona, companies can get the insight and support expertise that they need with the peace of mind that any recommendations really are the best for them and their requirements.
