Tokutek Sees Four-Fold Customer Growth in 2013 From Big Data Demand

Performance Database Company Sees Strong Demand for New MongoDB Distribution and Open Source Availability

LEXINGTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/07/14 -- Tokutek, delivering database performance at scale, affirmed its place as a big data player in 2013 with a four-fold increase in its customer base and the introduction of TokuMX® for MongoDB. Specifically, the launch of TokuMX drove record-breaking numbers of downloads, surpassing those of Tokutek's MySQL and MariaDB storage engine, TokuDB.

Introduced last June, TokuMX™ is a high-performance distribution of MongoDB that dramatically increases performance and database compression. TokuMX works best on large databases (typically 100 GBs or larger) by speeding indexing by 20x or more and by compressing data up to 90%, thereby radically improving database scalability. In September, Tokutek followed up with the introduction of TokuMX Enterprise Edition with hot back-up, which is backed with the subscriptions and services necessary to support business-grade applications.

Open Source Initiatives -- Tokutek became an open source company last April with the announcement of the TokuDB Community Edition of its MySQL database storage engine. Although TokuDB had been free for evaluation, the new TokuDB Community Edition extended free use to deployed environments. Going open source led to a big boost in TokuDB demand and weekly download rates jumped by two orders of magnitude. At the same time, Tokutek announced TokuDB Enterprise Edition; its subscription includes technical support, initial customer onboarding services, and advanced tools for backup and recovery.

"Tokutek expanded its product offerings in 2013 with the introduction of TokuMX and brought the performance and compression we're well known for to the white-hot NoSQL market," said John Partridge, CEO of Tokutek. "Releasing TokuMX as open source helped us to quickly tap into this rapidly-growing community and get our products into the hands of talented developers, database administrators, and DevOps managers."

Growing Customer Base -- With over 400% growth of its customer base in 2013, Tokutek attracted both established enterprise organizations such as Mozilla and Sears, research groups like the University of Montreal's Philip Awadalla Laboratory, as well as innovative startups like Crowdtap, online poker site SharkScope, TSheets, and LuckyOrange.

Crowdtap, a social influence marketing platform that makes it easy for marketers to generate unmatched social activity and provide valuable insights, migrated to TokuMX from MongoDB this fall. "Because it features document-level locking vs. MongoDB's collection-level locking, TokuMX was 20%-25% faster right out of the box with no special tuning," said Michael D'Auria, Crowdtap. "TokuMX also delivered 40%-60% higher compression, eliminating the need to invest in additional SSD drives."

Awards -- In recognition of its significant and continuing contribution to the MySQL community, Tokutek received the 2013 MySQL Community Award for Corporate Contributor of the Year. The award was presented at the community welcome reception at the 2013 Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo in Santa Clara, CA.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly.

This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Identity is in everything and customers are looking to their providers to ensure the security of their identities, transactions and data. With the increased reliance on cloud-based services, service providers must build security and trust into their offerings, adding value to customers and improving the user experience. Making identity, security and privacy easy for customers provides a unique advantage over the competition.
Is the ongoing quest for agility in the data center forcing you to evaluate how to be a part of infrastructure automation efforts? As organizations evolve toward bimodal IT operations, they are embracing new service delivery models and leveraging virtualization to increase infrastructure agility. Therefore, the network must evolve in parallel to become equally agile. Read this essential piece of Gartner research for recommendations on achieving greater agility.
