Percona Launches Worldwide 24

Percona Launches Worldwide 24×7 Support for MySQL

Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) October 5, 2010

Percona, Inc. (, leading independent experts in MySQL™ database performance, changes the landscape of MySQL support by launching enterprise-level support for an unlimited number of servers for a flat annual fee. Users of MySQL can now get immediate technical support from an independent vendor 24×7.

Although most traditional support contracts for MySQL are priced per server or per CPU, Percona's covers an unlimited number of database servers for a flat annual fee. Percona's new pricing model comes at the perfect time for customers facing steep increases in support costs in the near future. Enterprises can switch to Percona from other vendors and enjoy fast responses to every request (not just for emergencies), access to deep expertise on database internals, and friendly staff who understand their business and deliver personalized service.

“I've been very happy with Percona's responsiveness when I needed support,” said Taylor Weibley, Operations Manager at 37signals (, the company behind the popular Basecamp online collaboration software and two best-selling books on agile business models. “I recently got Percona's support staff on the phone in less than three minutes. That immediate responsiveness is key to keeping us online.”

Since 2006 Percona has provided on-demand, pay per-hour-support and consulting, but this unpredictable cost model was hard for larger firms to budget. Percona's new service is easy for large enterprises to purchase, and focuses on their most critical needs – technical support, bug fixes, and custom server binaries.

“Percona Support & Maintenance for MySQL” is available in Silver, Gold, and Platinum contract levels, and is backed by over 40 full-time Percona staff distributed worldwide.

Diet Phone Consulting Programs Come of Age: Today?s Dieters Crave Live, Personal Support: 24/7

Stuart, FL (PRWEB) January 31, 2006

Ram Nutrition & Weight Loss, Inc. has just introduced a new toll free 8-week diet phone consulting service, with information and details via the website According to Dr. Leonard J. Ram, Trimtalk’s founder (and author of the diet book “The Ram Nut Diet”), “I combined my years of medical experience with my interest in helping people achieve weight loss, and Trimtalk was born. I created this program to meet the needs of dieters seeking a complete, long lasting solution, one that addresses the three key components of successful weight loss: nutrition, exercise, and emotional support.”

Diet industry analysts agree that dieters in 2006 are looking for convenience; professional, live and customized service; and real results—at an affordable price. However, few weight loss programs provide this rare mix of features.

The Top Complaints of Dieters:

Programs are too difficult to maintain, resulting in poor weight loss results.

Being forced to buy costly pre-packaged company diet foods.

Having to count calories or points via complex plans.

Diet consultants are not available when they need them, and/or they have to drive to a diet center to speak with a consultant.

Support via diet websites is poor. Many take several days to reply to an email, if they do at all.

Many ‘diet consultants’ lack professional training or competency.

The inability to speak with the same diet consultant each time.

Weight loss counseling has been a growing field over the past decade. However, the quality of information and support the dieter receives varies considerably, resulting in lackluster results. Traditionally, diet “consultants” have been paid poorly and turnover is high. Most are little more than customer service representatives or salespeople pitching products or services the dieter does not want or need. Trimtalk has addressed these issues by recruiting only highly credentialed, empathetic consultants with a personal history of weight loss, and then training them completely to meet the dieter’s needs.

A June 2005 article in Consumer Reports found: "...Of all the diet strategies, personal support is the most successful. In a 2002 survey, the dieters who worked one-on-one with a "counselor" or "consultant" said it was second in effectiveness only to devising their own personal diet and exercise plan."

However, quality and affordable diet phone consulting programs that are open to the public are rare in the United States. The Trimtalk program has been designed to fill this void.

The Trimtalk Program was developed by: an MD, Board Certified in Nutrition, a Registered Dietitian, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and an Exercise Physiologist. The Trimtalk program includes…

28 days of personalized Meal and Fitness plans.

8 weekly toll-free Telephone Consulting Sessions. The dieter gets one-to-one weight loss consulting each week with the same consultant.

the Trimtalk Workbook, a 70-page manual filled with nutrition, exercise, motivational tips, and strategies for success.

access to the Trimtalk Website, a robust website where clients get all the tools for dieting success, including a weight loss journal.

a pedometer and tape measure.

a copy of the Ram Nut Diet book, by Leonard Ram, MD, the founder of Trimtalk.

“We noted that weight loss analysts have found that about 70% of dieters are in need of emotional eating support. Trimtalk focuses heavily on the emotional component needed for successful weight loss through the use of weekly telephone consulting”, said Dr. Ram.
