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.

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacenter.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
