    i know there is feature request pending for mysql alternatives but it seems taking so long time for implementation though maridb and percona claim they can be used by simply replacing mysql, so i want ask any one have successfully done this on production servers ?

    Personally, a handful of my private clients have hired me to switch their production whm/cpanel MySQL servers over to MariaDB 5.2.x and have done so without problem. Only used MariaDB 5.2.x and not 5.3.x. I'd stick with MariaDB 5.2 for now. Currently, testing MariaDB 5.5.

    Indirectly, I know of a few folks using Percona on whm/cpanel without problems too in production environments. Personally, only used Percona on whm/cpanel in test servers or servers prior to going live in production. That doesn't diminish Percona's value, it's just I haven't had the direct opportunity to use Percona in production environments as much as I prefer MariaDB.
