Increasing Cloud Database Efficiency – Like Crows in a Closet
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In Mo’ Data, Mo’ Problems, we explored the paradox that “Big Data” projects pose to organizations and how Tokutek is taking an innovative approach to solving those problems. In this post, we’re going to talk about another hot topic in IT, “The Cloud,” and how enterprises undertaking Cloud efforts often struggle with idea of “problem trading.” Also, for some reason, databases are just given a pass as traditionally “noisy neighbors” and that there is nothing that can be done about it. Lets take a look at why we disagree.

With the birth of the information age came a coupling of business and IT. Increasingly …

How to benchmark MongoDB
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There are generally three components to any benchmark project:

  1. Create the benchmark application
  2. Execute it
  3. Publish your results

I assume many people think they want to run more benchmarks but give up since step 2 is extremely consuming as you expand the number of different configurations/scenarios.

I'm hoping that this blog post will encourage more people to dive-in and participate, as I'll be sharing the bash script I used to test the various compression options coming in the …

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, …

Diving deeper into MongoDB 2.8 collection level locking performance
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Last month I wrote a blog about the closing of MongoDB ticket SERVER-1240, which brings Collection Level Locking (CLL) to the MMAPV1 storage engine in MongoDB 2.8. In MongoDB 2.6 there is a writer lock at the database level, so each database only allows one writer at a time. In concurrent write workloads, this means that all writers essentially form a single line and do their writes one at a time. In MongoDB 2.8 this lock has been moved to the collection level. Better yet is …

Should vegetarians open steakhouse restaurants?
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

"Should vegetarians open steakhouse restaurants?"

Though someone will probably give me several examples of why they should, I'll argue that they absolutely should not. How can someone who doesn't eat steak convince others to eat at their "steak-only" restaurant?

But this is something a "professional technology benchmarker" (PTB) struggles with on a regular basis. Hello, I'm Tim Callaghan, and I'm a PTB.
professional technology benchmarker, or PTB (noun) : One who compares two technologies as part of their job. One of these technologies is usually the product of the PTB's employer, the other is almost …

TokuMX vs. PostgreSQL in EnterpriseDB's NoSQL Compression Benchmark
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Since this is my first blog I feel it's necessary to introduce myself. I'm Tim Callaghan, I work at Tokutek (makers of TokuDB and TokuMX), and I love benchmarking. While some of the content on this blog will certainly be about Tokutek technologies, I plan on exploring a wide variety of others as well. These are strictly my own personal views and opinions, and comments/feedback are always welcome. Lets get started...
