Announcing TokuDB v6.6: Performance Improvements
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We are excited to announce TokuDB® v6.6, the latest version of Tokutek’s flagship storage engine for MySQL and MariaDB.

This version offers three types of performance improvements: in-memory, multi-client and fast updates.

Although TokuDB is optimized for large tables, which are larger than memory, many workloads consist of a mix of large and small tables. TokuDB v6.6 offers improvements on in-memory performance, with a more than 100% improvement on Sysbench at many concurrency levels and more than 200% improvement on TPC-C at many concurrency levels. Details to follow.

We have also made improvements in multi-threaded performance. For example, single threaded trickle loads have always been fast in TokuDB. But now multi-threaded trickle loads are even faster. An

Database Virtualization, What it Really Means
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is a response to a blog postby analyst and marketing consultant Curt Monash.
Originally virtualization meant running one operating system in a window inside of another operating system, e.g. running a Linux on a Windows machine using Microsoft Virtual PC or VMWare. Then virtualization evolved to mean slicing a single server into many for more granular resource allocation (Curt’s ex uno plures, translated: out of one, many). It has since expanded to include e pluribus unum (from many, one) and e pluribus ad pluribus (from many to many). This is evidenced in the use of the term “virtualization” to create the compound words: server virtualization, storage virtualization, network virtualization and now database virtualization.

Marinating in 2013

What a flashback this week. Staring at a text terminal trying to establish a connection with a remote server, I began to fret whether I would get my homework assignment done on time. My mind raced back to college nights years ago in the Fishbowl, hunched over an Athena workstation. Would this be another late night fueled by Jolt cola in order to get my problem set done?

Thankfully, no!

Embarking on my first software class in quite a while was relatively painless, and I have Sheeri Cabral and her detailed guidance to thank. This week I started the

Move over Marcia: Top Ten for 2012
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Well, it’s that time of the year again for top ten lists. There have been many versions showing up on the web the last few days, including Time Magazine’s “Top 10 Everything of 2012″ list, with 55 wide ranging lists!

Last year we started using Google Analytics to see what content for blogs was most popular on Tokutek.com and generated a 2011 top ten list, ending up with a few surprises.  This year saw spikes in some interesting areas as well, including flash performance, NASA and Big Data, and MongoDB.

Without further adieu, here is the top ten list for 2012:

Packing for the Holidays
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Every time I visit my family for the holidays, as the date approaches, I find myself filled with dread. It’s nothing sinister, my family’s great, and the season is nice. The reason is simple:

I hate packing.

In fact, I hate both kinds of packing: trip packing, and bit packing. Let me tell you a story about bit packing.

Bit packing

If you’ve ever browsed around the available type attributes in GCC, you may have noticed the entry for “packed”. It seems straightforward enough, and if you’re trying to cram a lot of data in a system (like we do), it can be pretty attractive.

There are plenty

Tired of the same old holiday tunes year after year? Join us as we Rock around the Fractal Tree here at Tokutek.

We’ve fiddled with the chorus; won’t you join us?

Rockin’ around the Fractal Tree
(sung to the tune of Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree)

Rockin’ around the Fractal Tree
As the bits begin to hop
Leaves are full on trees that are not B
Our indexes cannot be stopped

Rockin’ around the Fractal Tree
Let the MySQL spirit ring
Time to compress all into an SSD
And watch out for the Merciless Ming

You will get a sensational feeling when you hear voices singing
“No, not a fable; online changes done with alter table!”
Rockin’ around the Fractal Tree

Fractal Tree Indexing Overview
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

We get a lot of questions about how Fractal Tree indexes work. It’s a write-optimized index with fast queries, but which write-optimized indexing structure is it?

In this ~15 minute video (which uses these slides), I give a quick overview of how they work and what they are good for.

+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In this webinar we will show step by step how to install, configure, and test TokuDB for a typical performance evaluation. We’ll also be flagging potential pitfalls that can ruin the eval results. It will describe the differences between installing from scratch and replacing an existing MySQL / MariaDB installation. It will also review the most common issues that may arise when running TokuDB binaries.

Date: December 11th
Time: 2 PM EST / 11 AM PST
REGISTER TODAY

Topics will include:

  • Memory allocation
  • Initial data load
  • Indexing, including clustering indexes
  • compression algorithms

We look forward to having you join

Scalable Databases for Startups
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

One of the great things about the MassTLC unConference is the spontaneity of the ideas. In the morning I ran into an old colleague whose startup was looking at switching databases and struggling with the options. Hence, “Scalable Databases for Startups” seemed like a great topic, so I proposed it, and then was off and running full steam after lunch.

The session brought in a wide variety of firms. While there were several vendors there – Basho, Calpont, InterSystems,
