Does anyone have experience with Percona versus MySQL?

The application in question has one really big table with a bunch of ENUMs and 
one joined table (with a 4K text field). All reads, minimal writes. Queries on 
the table work great in MySQL (MyISAM engine) with the DB is on an SSD (on a the 
new bad-ass High I/O Quadruple Extra Large EC2 instances) but performance sucks 
when the DB is moved back to EBS (and gets worse with the production m1.large 

Think Percona will help? Should I bite the bullet and try Postgres?
