Percona XtraDB Cluster and Percona MySQL Support Help Passportal Create Backbone for Five 9s Uptime

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – AWS re:Invent – Nov. 26, 2018 – Percona, a leader in open source database software and services, today announced that Passportal relies on Percona to help ensure uptime and availability of its production database environment in Amazon AWS. Passportal supports VARs, MSPs and ISVs with an industrial-strength, fully-managed, cloud-based SaaS solution that automates password protection and makes storing, managing and retrieving client documentation quick and easy. With Percona, Passportal has achieved a high-availability backbone for five 9s uptime. The company has also reduced database deployment and issue-resolution times and is successfully controlling operational and infrastructure costs as the database scales.

Passportal’s solutions promote compliance with industry regulations and help protect businesses from data breaches, cybersecurity threats and network vulnerabilities. The company’s database environment in Amazon AWS contains customer information, as well as the data required to manage customer password policies and execution. For Passportal’s customers to be successful, this data must always be available, which means uptime and security are critical success factors for Passportal.

To ensure uptime and security in the face of an expanding customer base and ever-increasing database workloads, Passportal deployed Percona XtraDB Cluster, a cost-effective, robust solution for applications that require synchronous replication of data, fault tolerant failover and quick, easy scalability across commodity hardware. With Percona XtraDB Cluster, Passportal can seamlessly replicate data to any node, and can build and replace any Percona XtraDB Cluster instance in their Amazon AWS production environment in less than an hour, including moving their dataset between instances. This ensures uptime for applications if any node in the database goes offline for any reason.

Percona XtraDB Cluster has also enabled a reduction in the time required to restore a backup from hours to minutes.

Passportal also subscribes to Percona Support for MySQL, a highly responsive, effective and affordable 24x7x365 support option for ensuring the continuous performance of MySQL®, MongoDB®, MariaDB® and PostgreSQL deployments – in and out of the cloud. Percona’s database support experts enable Passportal to maintain the high uptime required by its customers. Percona support also helps Passportal maximize its return on investment in AWS by containing costs and complexity, even as its AWS footprint has substantially increased.
