Percona, the company that makes MySQL faster and more reliable, today announced the availability of Percona Toolkit 2.2, the latest release of the company's open source administration tools for MySQL which also work with Percona Server, the drop-in replacement for MySQL. The new version adds support for Percona XtraDB Cluster and MySQL 5.6. Enhancements also make Percona Toolkit 2.2 more resilient and easier to use.

Percona Toolkit is a free, open source solution, which enables administrators to simply and reliably automate complex, tedious tasks to eliminate error-prone steps and avoid unintended consequences, such as increased system load. The tools distill the expertise that Percona has acquired through tens of thousands of hours of experience on mission-critical MySQL and Percona Server database servers. Percona Toolkit reduces operational costs by increasing staff productivity and helping to improve database performance and uptime. It is very useful for administrators of all MySQL servers and is especially useful for large, busy servers, such as web applications, enterprise systems, and gaming applications. Percona Toolkit 2.2 tools are developed by the Percona engineering team, which uses more than 4,000 unit and integration tests to ensure the highest quality and reliability.

Technical Highlights
* Fully MySQL 5.6 compatible
* Several tools have been significantly updated or rewritten to make them more powerful, simpler, and easier to use.
* The resiliency of pt-online-schema-change has been greatly improved, especially for MySQL 5.5 and 5.6.
