At next month’s Boston MySQL Meetup, I will give a talk: “Fractal Tree Indexes – Theoretical Overview and Customer Use Cases.” The meetup is 7 pm Monday, January 9th, 2012, and will be held at MIT Building E51 Room 337e (corner of Ames & Amherst St, Cambridge, MA). Thanks to host Sheeri Cabral for the invitation.

Most databases employ B-trees to achieve a good tradeoff between the ability to update data quickly and to search it quickly. It turns out that B-trees are far from the optimum in this tradeoff space. This led to the development at MIT, Rutgers and Stony Brook of Fractal Tree® indexes. Fractal Tree indexes improve MySQL® scalability and query performance by allowing greater insertion rates, supporting rich indexing and offering efficient compression. They can also eliminate operational headaches such as dump/reloads, inflexible schemas and partitions.

I’ll give an overview on how Fractal Tree indexes work, and then get into some specific product features, benchmarks, and customer use cases that show where people have deployed Fractal Tree indexes via the TokuDB® storage engine.

I hope to see you there!
