From Oracle to 10gen, The MongoDB Company

Those who are familiar with me know I've a dream.

5 years ago I decided to leave a systems integrator where I was doing great. Why? I wanted to be in a company with the same growth prospects that Oracle had in the 80s. I dreamed to be in the Oracle of 30 years ago and, as time travel wasn't affordable, I decided to join MySQL AB to help expand the business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
A few years later my dream came true, but in a slightly different sense. Sun acquired MySQL and was later swallowed by Oracle giving me the opportunity to join the company I wished I could have helped build.

Oracle is an amazing …

This

Open Source TokuDB Resources

Since we announced that TokuDB is now open source, there has been a lot of positive feedback (thanks!) and also some questions about the details. I want to take this opportunity to give a quick high level guide to describe what our repositories on Github are.

Here are the repositories:

  • ft-index. This repository is the “magic”. It contains the Fractal Tree data structures we have been talking about for years. This is also the main piece that was previously closed source. Here are some interesting directories:
    • src: This directory is a layer that implements an API that is similar to the BDB API.
    • locktree: an in-memory data structure that maintains transactions’ row-level locks. …

Announcing TokuDB v7: Open Source and More

Every few months, I get the fun job of announcing what’s new in TokuDB®, but this time is special. With Version 7, TokuDB for MySQL and MariaDB is going open source.

The free Community Edition is fully functional and fully performant. It has all the compression you’ve come to expect from TokuDB. It has hot schema changes: no-down-time column insertion, deletion, renaming, etc., as well as index creation. It has clustering secondary keys. We are also announcing an Enterprise Edition (coming soon) with additional benefits, such as a support package and advanced backup and recovery tools.

Making TokuDB open source is a natural next step for Tokutek’s involvement in the MySQL community. So far, Tokutek has been involved in the community in many ways:

  • We’ve contributed a number of  …

April is the Coolest Month
