Percona Acquires Tokutek : My Thoughts #3 : Fractal Tree Indexes
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Last week I wrote up my thoughts about the Percona acquisition of Tokutek from the perspective of TokuDB and TokuMX[se]. In this third blog of the trilogy I'll cover the acquisition and the future of the Fractal Tree Index. The Fractal Tree Index is the foundational technology upon which all Tokutek products are built.

LinkBenchX: benchmark based on arrival request rate
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

An idea for a benchmark based on the “arrival request” rate that I wrote about in a post headlined “Introducing new type of benchmark” back in 2012 was implemented in Sysbench. However, Sysbench provides only a simple workload, so to be able to compare InnoDB with TokuDB, and later MongoDB with Percona TokuMX, I wanted to use more complicated scenarios. (Both TokuDB and TokuMX are part of Percona’s product line, in the case you missed …

Percona Acquires Tokutek : My Thoughts #1 : TokuDB
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Two weeks ago Percona announced it's acquisition of Tokutek (April 14, 2015). The analyst coverage was a bit fluffy for my liking, but I decided to give it some time and see if anything "meaty" would come along, and ... it hasn't. The sheer number of tweets on Twitter was impressive, which makes me hopeful that the acquisition raised awareness to the Tokutek technologies and that the Tokutek products have a found a good home

I've been thinking a lot about the future of the Tokutek technologies over these same two weeks and want to share them …

It is my pleasure to announce that Percona has acquired Tokutek and will take over development and support for TokuDB® and TokuMX™ as well as the revolutionary Fractal Tree® indexing technology that enables those products to deliver improved performance, reliability and compression for modern Big Data applications.

At Percona we have been working with the Tokutek team since 2009, helping to improve performance and scalability. The TokuDB storage engine has been available for Percona Server for about a year, so joining forces is quite a natural step for us.

Fractal Tree indexing technology—developed by years of data science …

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 …

TokuDB Table Optimization Improvements

Section I: Fractal Tree and Optimization Overview
Tokutek’s Fractal Tree® technology provides fast performance by injecting small messages into buffers inside the Fractal Tree index. This allows writes to be batched, thus eliminating I/O that is required in traditional B-tree indexes for every operation. Additional background information on how Fractal Trees operate can be found in Zardosht Kasheff’s blog entitled, TokuMX Fractal Tree Indexes, What Are They? Don’t be thrown off by the title, Fractal Tree Indexes access …

Operationalizing TokuDB
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In my previous post, I talked about implementing multi-threaded replication (MTR) using Percona Server 5.6. The server pairs that are utilizing MTR are also exclusively using the TokuDB storage engine.

I find TokuDB to be a fascinating engine. I can tell I will need to re-watch our Dbhangops session where Tim Callaghan talked about the differences …

TokuDB Hot Backup Now a MySQL Plugin
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In the recently released TokuDB 7.5.5 the implementation of TokuDB hot-backup moved from a patch to the MySQL Server, to MySQL Plugin.  Why did we make this change?

TokuDB hot backup makes a transactionally consistent copy of the TokuDB files while applications continue to read and write these files.  Christian Rober wrote a nice series of blogs about how hot backup works.  See TokuDB hot backup 1 and TokuDB hot backup 2 for details.  In …
