NoSQL is Great, But You Still Need Indexes

 | February 20, 2013 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

I’ve said it before, and, as is the nature of these things, I’ll almost certainly say it again: your database performance is only as good as your indexes. That’s the grand thesis, so what does that mean? In any DB system — SQL, NoSQL, NewSQL, PostSQL, … — data gets ingested and organized. And the […]

Move over Marcia: Top Ten for 2012

 | December 27, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

Well, it’s that time of the year again for top ten lists. There have been many versions showing up on the web the last few days, including Time Magazine’s “Top 10 Everything of 2012” list, with 55 wide ranging lists! Last year we started using Google Analytics to see what content for blogs was most […]

532x Multikey Index Insertion Performance Increase for MongoDB with Fractal Tree Indexes

 | November 13, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

In my three previous MongoDB blogs I wrote about our implementation of Fractal Tree(R) indexes on MongoDB, showing a 10x insertion performance increase, a 268x query performance increase, and a comparison of covered indexes and clustered indexes. These benchmarks show the difference that rich and efficient indexing can make to your MongoDB workload. Given the […]

MongoDB Index Shootout: Covered Indexes vs. Clustered Fractal Tree Indexes

 | September 6, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

In my two previous blogs I wrote about our implementation of Fractal Tree Indexes on MongoDB, showing a 10x insertion performance increase and a 268x query performance increase. MongoDB’s covered indexes can provide some performance benefits over a regular MongoDB index, as they reduce the amount of IO required to satisfy certain queries.  In essence, […]

268x Query Performance Increase for MongoDB with Fractal Tree Indexes, SAY WHAT?

 | August 30, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

Last week I wrote about our 10x insertion performance increase with MongoDB. We’ve continued our experimental integration of Fractal Tree® Indexes into MongoDB, adding support for clustered indexes.  A clustered index stores all non-index fields as the “value” portion of the index, as opposed to a standard MongoDB index that stores a pointer to the […]

10x Insertion Performance Increase for MongoDB with Fractal Tree Indexes

 | August 23, 2012 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

The challenge of handling massive data processing workloads has spawned many new innovations and techniques in the database world, from indexing innovations like our Fractal Tree® technology to a myriad of “NoSQL” solutions (here is our Chief Scientist’s perspective). Among the most popular and widely adopted NoSQL solutions is MongoDB and we became curious if […]

MongoDB Approach to Availability

 | April 30, 2010 |  Posted In: Cloud and NoSQL, MySQL

Another thing I find interesting about MongoDB is its approach to Durability, Data Consistency and Availability. It is very relaxed and will not work for some applications but for others it can be usable in current form. Let me explain some concepts and compare it to technologies in MySQL space. First I think MongoDB is […]
