Comments: It simplified database administration for my organization and helped us scale our applications to handle spikes in traffic.

Pros: I like the fact that it was way easier than I thought to setup and migrate our databases over. Also, with automated backups and reports, I get a bird's eye view of our whole database infrastructure with respect to health, performance and resources.

Cons: There were many components to choose from depending on what your needs are and that can daunting to a first time username.

Pros: - expose a lot of useful metrics to monitor

Comments: I'm using Percona on a web/database server (~2300 queries/second) and it's rock solid. I don't have data to back this up but it certainly "feels" smoother handling heavy loads than standard MySQL on the same server.
