Tokutek Eliminates Performance Issues of MongoDB Sharding With TokuMX v1.4

Allows Shards to Be Balanced and Added Without Disruption for a NoSQL Solution That Scales Up and Scales Out Better Than Basic MongoDB

LEXINGTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/18/14 -- Tokutek, delivering database performance at scale, today announced TokuMX® v1.4 with improved sharding that resolves the bottlenecks experienced by MongoDB users. As a result, TokuMX scales up and scales out better than MongoDB to deliver optimal application performance.

Sharding is a popular technique used by MongoDB developers for scaling out, but the performance gains can diminish over time as shards become unbalanced. In particular, shard balancing can trigger unacceptable performance stalls: our benchmark shows a 66% reduction in throughput for over 10 seconds. TokuMX's superior query, insert, and delete performance permits balancing without disruption to the running workload.

TokuMX v1.4 helps database administrators and DevOps professionals:

  • Balance transactions significantly faster, virtually eliminating locks due to shard balancing;
  • Seamlessly create new shards.

Open source TokuMX v1.4 is available for free download.

"NoSQL databases like MongoDB offer great developer productivity but can present difficult challenges in production. A new distribution that is a drop-in replacement for MongoDB, Tokutek's TokuMX brings both a needed performance boost and now helps address operational problems with scaling out," said Mike Matchett, senior analyst and consultant, Taneja Group. "IT operations folks will be pleased to find Tokutek addressing the big operational database challenges experienced after developers have handed off their new NoSQL based applications into production."

"This release further establishes TokuMX as the high-performance distribution of MongoDB," said John Partridge, CEO of Tokutek. "By increasing MongoDB's ability to scale up as well as scale out, Tokutek continues to strengthen its position in the Big Data market."

TokuMX™ is a high-performance distribution of MongoDB that dramatically increases performance and database compression. TokuMX works best on large databases (typically 100 GBs or larger) by speeding indexing by 20x or more and by compressing data up to 90%, thereby radically improving database scalability.

DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO, to be held June 25-26, 2019 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA – announces that its Call for Papers is open. Born out of proven success in agile development, cloud computing, and process automation, DevOps is a macro trend you cannot afford to miss. From showcase success stories from early adopters and web-scale businesses, DevOps is expanding to organizations of all sizes, including the world's largest enterprises – and delivering real results. Among the proven benefits, DevOps is correlated with 20% faster time-to-market, 22% improvement in quality, and 18% reduction in dev and ops costs, according to research firm Vanson-Bourne. It is changing the way IT works, how businesses interact with customers, and how organizations are buying, building, and delivering software.
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform. Then we'll show how automate deploying these images quickly and reliability with open DevOps tools like Terraform and Digital Rebar. Not only is this approach fast, it's also more secure and robust for operators. If you are running infrastructure, this talk will change how you think about your job in profound ways.
In today's always-on world, customer expectations have changed. Competitive differentiation is delivered through rapid software innovations, the ability to respond to issues quickly and by releasing high-quality code with minimal interruptions. DevOps isn't some far off goal; it's methodologies and practices are a response to this demand. The demand to go faster. The demand for more uptime. The demand to innovate. In this keynote, we will cover the Nutanix Developer Stack. Built from the foundation of software-defined infrastructure, Nutanix has rapidly expanded into full application lifecycle management across any infrastructure or cloud .Join us as we delve into how the Nutanix Developer Stack makes it easy to build hybrid cloud applications by weaving DBaaS, micro segmentation, event driven lifecycle operations, and both financial and cloud governance together into a single unified st...
