PERCONA STANDALONE SERVER

Tags

As a DevOps activist I am exploring Percona XtraDB. In a series of blogs I will share my learnings. This blog intends to capture step by step details of installation of Percona XtraDB in Standalone mode

Introduction:


Percona Server is an enhanced drop-in replacement for Mysql. It offers breakthrough performance, scalability, features, and instrumentation.
Percona focus on providing a solution for the most demanding applications, empowering users to get the best performance and lowest downtime possible.

The Percona XtraDB Storage Engine:

  • Percona XtraDB is an enhanced version of the InnoDB storage engine, designed to better scale on modern hardware, and including a variety of other features useful in high performance environments. It is fully backwards compatible, and so can be used as a drop-in replacement for standard InnoDB. 
  • Percona XtraDB includes all of InnoDB's robust, reliable ACID-compliant design and advanced MVCC architecture, and builds on that solid foundation with more features, more tunability. more metrics, and more scalability.
  • It is designed to scale better on many cores, to use memory more efficiently, and to be more convenient and useful.

Installation on ubuntu:

STEP 1: Add Percona Software Repositories
$ apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 1C4CBDCDCD2EFD2A
STEP 2: Add this to /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://repo.percona.com/apt precise main
deb-src http://repo.percona.com/apt precise main
STEP 3: Update the local cache
$ apt-get update
STEP 4: Install the server and client packages
$ apt-get install percona-server-server-5.6 percona-server-client-5.6
STEP 5: Start Percona Server
$ service mysql start
