+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

During the second half of our CUBE discussion with Wikibon analyst Jeff Kelly at this year’s Strata Conference in Santa Clara, we talked about the tipping point for Big Data. Strata veterans could see at a glance that this year’s conference was markedly different. No longer the exclusive domain of geeks and database administrators, this year’s Strata featured some of the biggest enterprise vendors around. With heavy weight enterprise players Intel and EMC Greenplum announcing their own …

We had the opportunity to do a CUBE interview with Wikibon analyst Jeff Kelly at last week’s Strata Conference in Santa Clara. In the first part of our conversation, we discuss how our success in integrating Tokutek’s Fractal Tree® technology into MySQL has led us to another popular database, MongoDB. We explain the results of our recent benchmarking tests with MongoDB, which indicate that adding indexing can also …

Fast Updates with TokuDB
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

With TokuDB v6.6 out now, I’m excited to present one of my favorite enhancements: fast updates with TokuDB. Update intensive applications can have their throughput limited by the random read capacity of the storage system. The cause of the throughput limit is the read-modify-write algorithm that MySQL uses when processing update statements. MySQL reads a row from the storage engine, applies the updates to it, and then writes the new row to the storage engine. To address this throughput limit, TokuDB uses a different update algorithm that simply encodes the …

Introducing Data Fabric Design for Commodity SQL Databases
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Data management is undergoing a revolution.  Many businesses now depend on data sets that vastly exceed the capacity of DBMS servers.  Applications operate 24x7 in complex cloud environments using small and relatively unreliable VMs.  Managers need to act on new information from those systems in real-time. Users want constant and speedy access to their data in locations across the planet.

It is tempting to think popular SQL databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL have no place in this new world.  They manage small quantities of data, lack scalability features like parallel query, and have weak availability models. …

University of Montreal Tracks Genomic Data With Tokutek’s TokuDB.

Faster insertion rates, improved scalability and agility support lab’s fast growing research database as it grows from 100s of GBs to 1 TB and beyond.

Issue addressed: MySQL database used for genomic research must be able to quickly ingest huge amounts of incoming data – hundreds of thousands of records every day. It also must be able to retrieve data quickly in response to a …

+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

SkySQL Roadshow is coming to Stockholm on Feb 7, come by and meet us. I'll be ending the day with a talk on Big Data, which will be a more generic Big Data talk with some MySQL relevance, but with the focus on Big Data in general.

I haven't blogging much recently, but that has some reasons. I am since Dec 1 the proud father of twins, a little boy and a little girl. I have yet to teahc them to write proper SQL, the have particular issues with subqueries, but we'll get there. In order to create the usual …

The Results Are In!

We wanted to take a moment to say thanks to all of our customers and to the wider MySQL and MariaDB community. Today we announced a doubling of our customer base for the year ending December 31, 2012. Significant milestones over the last year included new technology and service partnerships, several awards, rapid hiring, as well as three upgrades to TokuDB®. We even dabbled in some MongoDB benchmarks. And to fuel continued growth in 2013, we secured additional venture capital funding last November.
