TokuDB vs RocksDB

 27 April - 1:50 PM - 2:40 PM @ Ballroom A
Experience level: 
50 minutes conference


Percona announced Percona Server with RocksDB engine. At the other hand Percona Server has TokuDB engine. Both engines are optimized for write workload. What's the difference between these two engines? This talk will compare TokuDB vs RocksDB from different aspects. We will start from algorithmic perspective and continue with benchmarking. Our goal is to clarify for what cases what engine is preferable to make the choice between these to engines a little bit easier and reasonable.
