1 Billion Insertions – The Wait is Over!

iiBench measures the rate at which a database can insert new rows while maintaining several secondary indexes. We ran this for 1 billion rows with TokuDB and InnoDB starting last week, right after we launched TokuDB v5.2. While TokuDB completed it in 15 hours, InnoDB took 7 days.

The results are shown below. At the end of the test, TokuDB’s insertion rate remained at 17,028 inserts/second whereas InnoDB had dropped to 1,050 inserts/second. That is a difference of over 16x. Our complete set of benchmarks for TokuDB v5.2 can be found here.

Announcing TokuDB v5.2: Improved Multi-Client Scaling and Faster Queries

TokuDB® v5.2, the latest version of Tokutek’s flagship storage engine for MySQL and MariaDB, is now available.

This version offers performance enhancements over previous releases, especially for multi-client scale up and point queries, and extends the cases where ALTER TABLE is non-blocking, in particular adding Hot Column Rename.

TokuDB v5.2 maintains all our established advantages: fast trickle load, fast bulk load, fast range queries through clustering indexes, hot schema changes, great compression, no fragmentation, and full MySQL compatibility for ease of installation. See our benchmark page for details.

Multi-client workloads

In TokuDB v5.2, we have reworked our locking scheme to better support multi-client workloads, and as always, we have focused on large databases. How did we do? Let’s check out some …

Announcing new features in MariaDB

We have lately been talking about some upcoming features that we feel are important to MariaDB users, because the corresponding ones that will be provided with MySQL will be incompatible with MariaDB and closed source.

We’re happy to announce the following:

  • The next version of MariaDB, version 5.2.10 will include an open source PAM Authentication Plugin. MariaDB 5.2.10 is scheduled for release next week.
  • A Windows Authentication Plugin is in development and QA currently and will be part of MariaDB 5.2.11, which is scheduled for release before Christmas.
  • MariaDB 5.5 will include both of the above plugins and an open source thread pool implementation. The soon-to-be-launched first version however will not include the thread pool.

Stay tuned for more information as soon as we start …

TokuDB v5.2 Beta Program


With the release of TokuDB v5.0 last March, we delivered a powerful and agile storage engine that broke through traditional MySQL scalability and performance barriers. As deployments of TokuDB have grown more varied, one request we have repeatedly heard from customers and prospects, especially in areas such as online advertising, social media, and clickstream analysis, is for improved performance for multi-client workloads.

Tokutek is now pleased to announce limited beta availability for TokuDB v5.2. The latest version of our flagship product offers a significant improvement over TokuDB v5.0 in multi-client scaling as well as performance gains in point queries, range queries, and trickle load speed. There are a host of other smaller changes and improvements that are detailed in our release notes (available to beta participants).

TokuDB continues to lead the field by offering:

MariaDB now available as a hosted database via Jelastic cloud platform

About Jelastic:

Jelastic is the next generation of Java Platforms as a Service.

Unlike previous cloud platforms, Jelastic:

  • Can run any Java application and so does not require developers to change their code or get locked-into the platform,
  • Can scale any application up and down by automatically adding or removing memory and CPU units depending on the application load,
  • Takes all configuration and management worries away: developers simply specify the application stack and database options they need and Jelastic creates, configures, and maintains the environment for them
  • Supports a wide range of application server stacks including Tomcat, JBoss, Jetty, and GlassFish
  • Out of the box, allows users to get a preconfigured instance of MariaDB up and running and available to the application.

A beta version …
