Webinar: Introduction to TokuDB v6.5

Posted On October 4, 2012 | By Tokutek | 1 comments

TokuDB® is a proven solution that scales MySQL® and MariaDB® from GBs to TBs with unmatched insert and query speed, compression, replication performance and online schema flexibility. Tokutek’s recently launched TokuDB v6.5 delivers all of these features and more, not just for HDDs, but also for flash memory.

Originally Aired: October 10th
AVAILABLE ON DEMAND

TokuDB v6.5:

  • Stores 10x More Data – TokuDB delivers 10x compression without any performance degradation. Users can therefore take advantage of much greater amounts of available space without paying more for additional storage.
  • Delivers High Insertion Speed – TokuDB Fractal Tree® indexes continue to change the game with huge insertion rates and greater scalability. Our latest release delivers an order of magnitude faster insertion performance than the competition, ideal for applications that must simultaneously query and update large volumes of rapidly arriving data (e.g., clickstream analytics).
  • Allows Hot Schema Changes  — Hot column addition/deletion/rename/resize provides the ability to add/drop/change a column to a database without taking the database offline, enabling database administrators to redefine or add new fields with no downtime.
  • Extends Wear Life for Flash– TokuDB’s proprietary Fractal Tree indexing writes fewer, larger blocks which reduces overall wear, and more efficiently utilizes the FTL (Flash Translation Layer). This extends the life of flash memory by an order of magnitude for many applications.

This webinar covers TokuDB features, latest performance results, and typical use cases.
