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 …

2015: More innovation, but still a year of transition
+0 Vote Up -3Vote Down

First things first: I could use this title for every year, it is an evergreen. In order for this title to make sense, there must be a specific context and in this case the context is Big Data. We have seen new ideas and many announcements in 2014, and in 2015 those ideas will shape up and early versions of innovative products will start flourishing.Like many other people, I prepared some comments and opinions to post back in early January then, soon after the season’s break, I started flying around the world and the daily routine kept me away from the blog for some time. So, as a good last blogger, it may be time for me to post my own predictions, …

Mo’ Data, Mo’ Problems

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, …

“HBase and Hadoop are the only technologies proven to scale to dozens of petabytes on commodity servers, currently being used by companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Adobe and Salesforce.com.”–Monte Zweben.

Is it possible to turn Hadoop into a RDBMS? On this topic, I have interviewed Monte Zweben, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Splice Machine.

Data Warehouse in the Cloud - How to Upload MySQL data into Amazon Redshift for reporting and analytics

October 27, 2014 By Severalnines

The term data warehousing often brings to mind things like large complex projects, big businesses, proprietary hardware and expensive software licenses. With Hadoop came open source data analysis software that ran on commodity hardware, this helped address at least some of the cost aspects. We had previously blogged about MongoDB and …

Exorcising the CAP Demon
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Computer science is like an enormous tool box you can rummage through whenever you have a problem to solve. Most of the tools are sturdy and practical, like algorithms for B-trees. Some are also elegant, like consistent hashing in Dynamo. Finally there are some tools that you never quite figure out even after years of reflection. That piece of steel you are looking at could be Excalibur. Or it could be a rusty knife.

The CAP theorem falls into the last category, at least for me.  It was a major topic in the blogosphere a few years ago and Google Trends shows …

Managing big data? Say ‘hello’ to HP Vertica
+0 Vote Up -2Vote Down

Over the past few months, I’ve seen an increase in the following use case while working on performance and schema review engagements:

I need to store exponentially increasing amounts of data and analyze all of it in real-time.

This is also known simply as: “We have big data.” Typically, this data is used for user interaction analysis, ad tracking, or other common click stream applications. However, it can also be seen in threat assessment (ddos mitigation, etc), financial forecasting, and other applications as well. …
