Mo’ Data, Mo’ Problems
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Welcome to blog #2 in a series about the benefits of the Fractal Tree. In this post, I’ll be explaining Big Data, why it poses such a problem and how Tokutek can help. Given the fact that I am a lifelong fan of both Hip-hop and Big Data, the title was a no-brainer and, given the artist, a bit of a pun.

 I am as tired as you of hearing the term “Big Data.” It’s so overused, that it ceases to have specific meaning anymore. You see, data hardly ever starts as “big” or a “problem.” Rather, it starts small and easily manageable, but gradually grows to some unimaginable size and becomes a beast in need of slaying, like …

Fractal Tree Greatness: The Nexus
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In my recent travels, I’ve been speaking with database users at various meetups and trade shows worldwide. Very often, I got questions centering around the best use cases for our products, be it TokuDB, our MySQL storage engine, or, TokuMX, our distribution of MongoDB. Over 90% of the time, I responded Cloud, Big Data or both. You see, in the software industry we’re like kindergartners, we like things to fit into neat categories. If you know any software sales people, you’ll recognize this as a fitting analogy (at least in terms of energy and attention span), but I digress. This strategy helps allocate resources where they are most likely to make an impact, …

Prediction: MongoDB 2.8 storage engines and the rise of the MongoDBA
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MongoDB has always been about ease of use. With nothing more than the mongod binary, starting a MongoDB server is as simple as:
./mongod --dbpath=/path/to/dataAs a long time user of Oracle and MySQL I'm extremely impressed by just how simple this is. It certainly encourages new users to try it out.

In MongoDB 2.6 and earlier there has only been a single "storage engine" available in the server. That storage engine has very few tunable parameters, so the defaults are fine for most users. If you don't like the defaults you can probably change them with a little review of the documentation.

MongoDB 2.8 adds the …

Impressions from MongoDB Day London 2014
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I visited MongoDB Day in London on November 6. Here are a few observations:

App-Developer Centric. It is interesting to see how much MongoDB is about developers; the ops side is something which is a necessary evil developers have to deal with. The ops topics covered in principle that there are no topics about choices of operating systems or hardware for MongoDB beyond flash and more memory.

Development Stacks. Being application centric there was good coverage of the MongoDB-powered …

These are strictly my own personal views and opinions, and comments/feedback are always welcome. Lets get started...

Database Automation - Private DBaaS for MySQL, MariaDB and MongoDB with ClusterControl
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

October 9, 2014 By Severalnines

Installing, configuring, deploying databases and performing repetitive administrative tasks are all part of a DBA’s or sysadmin’s job. This can get pretty repetitive and overwhelming if you are part of a centralized IT team, running multiple databases for your organization’s different departments, or a managed hosting provider responsible for setting up and operating databases for external clients. One way to get out of this ‘manual, repetitive task’ business is through a Database as a Service (DBaaS).

DBaaS is a way of delivering database functionality as a …
