Tokutek(R) Announces TokuMX(TM) Compression and Performance Innovation Award
Brightcove and Crowdtap Significantly Improve Compression and
Performance of Big Data Applications by Moving to TokuMX Distribution
NEW YORK CITY, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- MongoDB World --
Tokutek(R), delivering database performance at scale, today named
Brightcove and Crowdtap the two winners of the inaugural TokuMX(TM)
Compression and Performance Innovation Awards. Both customers were
recognized by Tokutek for the dramatic improvement demonstrated by
their Big Data applications with implementation of TokuMX, the
Tokutek high-performance distribution of MongoDB.
Tokutek is exhibiting at booth #109 throughout MongoDB World.
TokuMX helps MongoDB users with the most challenging big data
applications dramatically improve performance with state-of-the-art
indexing and significantly reduce hardware costs with unmatched
database compression and write optimization.
"Both Brightcove and Crowdtap are excellent examples of organizations
that have implemented TokuMX to improve performance and compression
of their big data application platforms," said John Partridge, CEO,
Tokutek. "The overall operational improvements and cost savings
demonstrated have won Brightcove and Crowdtap a pair of our inaugural
TokuMX innovation awards."
Brightcove Eliminates Bottlenecks & Contains Backup Costs
(NASDAQ: BCOV), a leading global provider of cloud services for
video, offers a family of products that revolutionize the way
organizations deliver video experiences. As Brightcove looked to move
its real-time video analytics system to a new database platform to
overcome the challenges associated with rising server hardware costs
and supporting real-time data flow, the company discovered TokuMX,
the high-performance distribution of MongoDB from Tokutek. TokuMX
enabled Brightcove to leverage its existing investments in MongoDB
while upgrading the underlying MongoDB software platform.
By migrating to the Tokutek distribution of MongoDB, Brightcove is
able to achieve its real-time video analytics goals with a
document-oriented database approach, as originally planned. The
results have been compelling: better compression, better performance,
and better backup.
"With TokuMX compression our infrastructure costs are less than what
they would have been with basic MongoDB," said Ankur Chauhan, senior
software engineer, Brightcove. "And the granular locking that's
possible with TokuMX has improved application performance
immeasurably. Tokutek is saving us money and helping us set and meet
performance goals we could not achieve with basic MongoDB."
Crowdtap reduces storage requirements and accelerates applications
The Crowdtap social influence marketing platform manages more than 80
million documents that include information on all its customers'
clients as well as their ongoing feedback. The constant stream of
incoming data combined with the research analytics running across the
data led to unacceptable performance bottlenecks before the switch to
Once Crowdtap migrated to TokuMX it removed the cost and aggravation
of sharding, which would have required at least an additional three
servers and significant downtime. Tokutek also made it easy for
Crowdtap to download open source TokuMX and set up a test environment
where they could run a full day's worth of activity without making
any code changes. With TokuMX, Crowdtap has achieved better
compression, improved performance and write optimization.
"With TokuMX we were able to reduce our data storage requirements by
60% and that represents a huge cost savings over the long haul," said
Kareem Kouddous, Crowdtap founder & CTO. "Moreover, our applications
are running significantly faster on TokuMX and that helps us ensure
CSAT scores stay high."
