Opening Week for TokuDB

Since we had the pleasure to announce that TokuDB is open source on Monday, it’s been a thrilling ride. With several members of the team out west all week, back on the east coast we’ve been seeing quite a lot of questions, suggestions, and exciting results.

Here are some of the highlights of our first week of open source:

We started hearing back from the community almost immediately after the announcement with discussions in multiple forums. We even reached #2 on Hacker News for a bit.

On Tuesday, a friend of mine in China wrote up …

As I browse through the archive where I keep all my code
I look at my software and see it’s very old
But that’s just perfect for a …

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. …

Getting Interesting

I enjoyed Stewart Smith’s MySQL storage engine blog last week. In it he noted “I cannot emphasize how much more interesting TokuDB would be if it were open source.” Well, with our open source announcement yesterday, hopefully we are getting interesting.

We wanted to thank everyone for the great feedback. Here is a sampling from some of the forums where dialogue is occurring:

Reddit:

BrianAtDTS: “With this update, this puts MySQL in the upper echelon of data storage applications. You don’t have anything like this in any of the other major db’s.”

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

If T.S. Eliot were a MySQL DBA, I think he would have been more upbeat about April.

We are gearing up for an incredible second half of April. We will be presenting three separate sessions at the Percona Live: MySQL Conference and Expo 2013, April 22-25, in Santa Clara, CA. In addition, we will be presenting at SkySQL’s MySQL & Cloud Database Solutions Day on Friday, April 26 at the same location.

Come by to see us in Booth #114, or stop by one of our sessions:

TokuDB Fast Update Benchmark

Last month my colleague Rich Prohaska covered the technical details of our “Fast Update” feature which we added to TokuDB in version 6.6.  The message based architecture of Fractal Tree Indexes allows us to defer certain operations while still maintaining the semantics that MySQL users require.

In the case of Fast Updates, TokuDB is avoiding the read-before-write requirement that the existing MySQL update statement imposes on storage engines.  We can simply inject an update message into the Fractal Tree Index, and apply that message at a later time.  The message is dynamically applied if a user selects that specific row, and permanently when the message buffers …

Wanted: Evaluators to Try MongoDB with Fractal Tree Indexing

We recently resumed our discussion around bringing Fractal Tree indexes to MongoDB.  This effort includes Tokutek’s interview with Jeff Kelly at Strata as well as my two recent tech blogs which describe the compression achieved on a generic MongoDB data set and performance improvements we measured using on our implementation of Sysbench for MongoDB.  I have a full line-up of benchmarks and blogs planned for the next few months, as our project continues.  Many of these will be deeply technical and written by the Tokutek developers.

We have a group …
