Tokutek Announces Reselling Partnership With SkySQL

Leading MariaDB Distributor Adds TokuDB as Complementary Tool to Extend Database Performance and Scalability

LEXINGTON, MA and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM and HELSINKI, FINLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 02/12/14 -- Tokutek, delivering database performance at scale, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with SkySQL™, a trusted provider of open source database technology, to resell its TokuDB® database storage engine. SkySQL will offer the TokuDB storage engine as a complement to its MariaDB® distribution to increase scalability and performance and to enable real-time management of transactional and analytical data.

TokuDB enhances the SkySQL MariaDB distribution with its unique ability to handle high rates of incoming data, including updates, while maintaining query performance on large volumes of data. This occurs without requiring expensive hardware build-out and with no operational downtime. With TokuDB and the SkySQL MariaDB, database administrators and DevOps engineers can easily operate on continuously incoming data and incorporate analysis on large volumes of data. Businesses benefit from richer analysis, more up-to-date information, and access to detailed data.

"Tokutek's TokuDB storage engine gives the database administrators and DevOps engineers who support MariaDB applications a ready-made tool to improve their database performance and scalability," said Tom Callway, Director Marketing, SkySQL. "The combination of high data ingestion, compression and Fractal Tree indexing in Tokutek's TokuDB makes it a great complement to the SkySQL MariaDB for high-performance, real-time analytics."

Paybox, the leading provider of electronic payment solutions in Europe, is a current SkySQL MariaDB customer also using TokuDB to manage their database. According to Marc Thomas, chief technical officer at Paybox, "As we continue to grow, so do the demands on our databases. We've benefited from SkySQL's deep knowledge of MariaDB and best-in-class support, and Tokutek's unparalleled scalability and performance. The increased collaboration between SkySQL and Tokutek ensures that these two industry leading providers will become more tightly coupled on both the technology and the service level, which is a big plus for Paybox."

"SkySQL offers both a MariaDB distribution as well as the tools and services necessary to support it," said John Partridge, CEO of Tokutek. "With our TokuDB storage engine available as a SkySQL download, SkySQL is giving its customers the ability to make MariaDB into a much more performant database."

TokuDB is the ideal choice for complex high-volume applications that require fast response time and that must simultaneously store and query large volumes of rapidly arriving data. These include social networking applications, real-time clickstream analysis, logfile analysis, ecommerce personalization, and high-speed webcrawling applications. TokuDB is fully compatible with MySQL and MariaDB.

As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addresses many of the challenges faced by developers and operators as monolithic applications transition towards a distributed microservice architecture. A tracing tool like Jaeger analyzes what's happening as a transaction moves through a distributed system. Monitoring software like Prometheus captures time-series events for real-time alerting and other uses. Grafeas and Kritis provide security polic...
