Wanted: Evaluators to Try MongoDB with Fractal Tree Indexing

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

We recently resumed our discussion around bringing Fractal Tree indexes to MongoDB.  This effort includes Tokutek’s interview with Jeff Kelly at Strata as well as my two recent tech blogs which describe the compression achieved on a generic MongoDB data set and performance improvements we measured using on our implementation of Sysbench for MongoDB.  I […]

Sysbench Benchmark for MongoDB

 | March 14, 2013 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

As we continue to test our Fractal Tree Indexing with MongoDB, I’ve been updating my benchmark infrastructure so I can compare performance, correctness, and resource utilization.  Sysbench has long been a standard for testing MySQL performance, so I created a version that is compatible with MongoDB.  You can grab my current version of Sysbench for […]

The Last Mile for Big Data – Strata Overview with Jeff Kelly of Wikibon (Part 2)

 | March 11, 2013 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

During the second half of our CUBE discussion with Wikibon analyst Jeff Kelly at this year’s Strata Conference in Santa Clara, we talked about the tipping point for Big Data. Strata veterans could see at a glance that this year’s conference was markedly different. No longer the exclusive domain of geeks and database administrators, this […]

MongoDB + Fractal Tree Indexes = High Compression

 | February 27, 2013 |  Posted In: Tokutek, TokuView

One doesn’t have to look far to see that there is strong interest in MongoDB compression. MongoDB has an open ticket from 2009 titled “Option to Store Data Compressed” with Fix Version/s planned but not scheduled. The ticket has a lot of comments, mostly from MongoDB users explaining their use-cases for the feature. For example, […]

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 […]

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 […]
