The announcement a few weeks ago about the Elastic/Kibana license change to the SSPL has caused a bit of concern in the community, as such changes do.

Percona themselves seem to be doing nicely as a database service organisation supporting both open and sspl databases. As Matt says, it's hard but still worth it.
