With TokuDB and the SkySQL MariaDB, database administrators and DevOps engineers can easily operate on continuously incoming data and incorporate analysis on large volumes of data.
LEXINGTON, MA and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM and HELSINKI, FINLAND–(Marketwired – Feb 12, 2014) – Tokutek, delivering database performance at scale, today announced that it has entered into a partnership with SkySQL™, a trusted provider of open source database technology, to resell its TokuDB® database storage engine. SkySQL will offer the TokuDB storage engine as a complement to its MariaDB® distribution to increase scalability and performance and to enable real-time management of transactional and analytical data.
TokuDB enhances the SkySQL MariaDB distribution with its unique ability to handle high rates of incoming data, including updates, while maintaining query performance on large volumes of data. This occurs without requiring expensive hardware build-out and with no operational downtime. With TokuDB and the SkySQL MariaDB, database administrators and DevOps engineers can easily operate on continuously incoming data and incorporate analysis on large volumes of data. Businesses benefit from richer analysis, more up-to-date information, and access to detailed data.
“Tokutek’s TokuDB storage engine gives the database administrators and DevOps engineers who support MariaDB applications a ready-made tool to improve their database performance and scalability,” said Tom Callway, Director Marketing, SkySQL. “The combination of high data ingestion, compression and Fractal Tree indexing in Tokutek’s TokuDB makes it a great complement to the SkySQL MariaDB for high-performance, real-time analytics.”
Paybox, the leading provider of electronic payment solutions in Europe, is a current SkySQL MariaDB customer also using TokuDB to manage their database. According to Marc Thomas, chief technical officer at Paybox, “As we continue to grow, so do the demands on our databases. We’ve benefited from SkySQL’s deep knowledge of MariaDB and best-in-class support, and Tokutek’s unparalleled scalability and performance. The increased collaboration between SkySQL and Tokutek ensures that these two industry leading providers will become more tightly coupled on both the technology and the service level, which is a big plus for Paybox.”
“SkySQL offers both a MariaDB distribution as well as the tools and services necessary to support it,” said John Partridge, CEO of Tokutek. “With our TokuDB storage engine available as a SkySQL download, SkySQL is giving its customers the ability to make MariaDB into a much more performant database.”
TokuDB is the ideal choice for complex high-volume applications that require fast response time and that must simultaneously store and query large volumes of rapidly arriving data. These include social networking applications, real-time clickstream analysis, logfile analysis, ecommerce personalization, and high-speed webcrawling applications. TokuDB is fully compatible with MySQL and MariaDB.
