Webinar: Introduction to TokuDB
Businesses increasingly operate in a 24×7 environment, where complex analytics must be performed on live, continuously incoming “Big Data.” To address this, TokuDB has developed Fractal Tree® technology, a revolutionary new indexing capability that enables SQL databases running advanced web applications to grow from gigabytes to terabytes while improving insert speed, query performance, compression, and enabling zero-downtime schema changes.
TokuDB is used by MySQL and MariaDB customers worldwide to increase their database performance by 20x-80x on Big Data applications that conventional RDBMS’s cannot handle. Instead of waiting hours or even days to run queries or to revise their data model, customers can perform near real-time analysis on live data and instantly take advantage of fast changing business opportunities. Companies can thus capitalize on evolving market conditions, respond to changing business needs, and maintain larger and more comprehensive databases without being held back by database inflexibility. Industries taking advantage of TokuDB include online advertising, social networking, eCommerce personalization, fraud surveillance, mobile gaming, cloud storage, network monitoring, and online publishing.
This webinar covers TokuDB features, latest performance results, and typical use cases.
