How can you ensure peak database performance for your event?
Our attention spans are getting shorter. A widely distributed Microsoft study claimed the average attention span is now less than the nine-second attention span of your average goldfish! Similarly, a recent Google study found that 53% of mobile site visitors leave a page that takes longer than three seconds to load.
With user expectations at an all-time high and attention spans at an all-time low, each second of downtime can cost your business millions in lost customers and revenue.
Percona recently surveyed customers, and members of the community, on their open-source database usage and business growth. Over 44% of the over 800 respondents said they had experienced database performance issues that impacted their users in the last twelve months, and 21% had at least some unplanned downtime.
Current and emerging tools can help improve performance and make scaling easier but to take full advantage, they must be managed and deployed by experts, who understand their benefits as well as their limitations.
