Any stats on how this compares to MaRIADB? I've been using Maria for quite a while locally and used it on my VPS when I was running one.

@euantor I've never personally tried MariaDB, but there are some interesting statistics regarding Percona vs MySQL here: http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/2012/02/23/percona-server-vs-mysql-on-intel-320-ssd/

If I can find any Percona vs MariaDB specific statistics I'll be sure to pass them along. :)
