TokuDB Introduction

Percona Server is fully compatible with the separately available TokuDB storage engine package. TokuDB engine is not packaged with any Percona Server 5.6 download. The TokuDB engine must be separately downloaded and then enabled as a plug-in component. This package can be installed alongside standard Percona Server 5.6 releases starting with 5.6.19-67.0 and does not require any specially adapted version of Percona Server.

This storage engine is specifically designed for high performance on write-intensive workloads which is achieved with Fractal Tree indexing.
