Percona had a lot of new ideas and requirements for the complex topic of database monitoring and management

They had a multi-year product roadmap and an ever-increasing backlog of ideas, but they needed assistance with a telemetry project that was critical to their understanding of how and where to provide the most value to their users and customers. Although an existing system was in place, it was incapable of adapting to their growing needs and hindered their ability to make data-backed decisions.

When we engaged with Implex, we figured they might be able to help us out with just one project. The speed that they were able to implement the solution and results they delivered was so impressive we looked for more ways to involve them in our roadmap activities. They’ve become a critical piece of our development strategy and a trusted partner!

To address this issue, they required a service that could overcome data collection challenges and provide information to help structure and prioritize the next phases of product development. The telemetry service needed to be lightweight, scalable, and user-friendly. As the current teams were already at capacity and focused on essential features, they were doubtful they could fit it into their packed schedule anytime soon. Percona turned to Implex to design and implement a revamped telemetry service that would be highly configurable and easy to modify.


Our team successfully developed a scalable Telemetry service and implemented technical improvements for increased productivity. We continue to work together towards the empowered team transformation project.

Collaborative Approach & Infrastructure Design

Our team was made up of experienced software engineers who had worked on similar projects in the past. We worked closely with Percona's Product manager and architect to understand their requirements and to design a service that met their needs. We used AWS EKS on EC2 instances as infrastructure, which allowed us to deploy and manage the service in a scalable and efficient way. During implementation, we used ClickHouse as a storage engine and Grafana for collecting and visualizing the data, which allowed Percona to monitor PMM in real-time and make informed decisions based on the data they collected. To ensure that the service was of high quality, we implemented a rigorous testing and review process.

The tools and technologies we used were:

Senior Director of Engineering

The Telemetry project Implex delivered for us not only exceeded our expected value, but they made substantial contributions to improve processes, practices and tooling while doing so. The quality of their efforts along with their valued contributions made it an easy choice for us to look to expand their areas of responsibility. We consider Implex a trusted, valued, and integral partner.

The Telemetry service allowed Percona to collect data on how the PMM tool was being used in the real world. They could see which features were being used the most, which parts of the software were causing the most problems, and which configurations were most popular. This data was used to identify and fix issues more quickly, and to prioritize new features based on user needs.

The Telemetry service was implemented quickly and in high quality, which allowed Percona to meet its product release schedule. The service was also easy to use and scalable, which allowed Percona to manage and monitor their software more efficiently.

Bid farewell to blocks, restrictions, and CAPTCHAs

Implex built a custom software to scrape data from the internet to support client’s marketing efforts. Web scraping is a technique used to extract data from websites. However, some websites are well-protected and can make scraping more difficult. This case study will present the solution we've developed to overcome common problems that can be encountered while scraping more demanding websites. These issues include protection against scraping from IPs of public clouds and VPNs, the requirement of a CAPTCHA, rate limiting per IP address, and region-specific restrictions.

A cybersecurity services company Berezha Security Group rebranded as BSG in 2020. So they needed to improve their website, but redesign was only part of the story. The ultimate goal was to make the website fast and SEO-friendly, keeping its Google PageSpeed Insights scores in the green 90-100 range, what's impossible using a WordPress-like CMS approach. A static website with perfect usability, external CMS and one-click deployment functionality, and revision control successfully represents the BSG brand now.
