Tokutek Introduces TokuMX Enterprise Edition With Hot Backup

Tokutek, a provider of big data performance solutions, has introduced TokuMX Enterprise Edition with hot back-up. This new edition is designed to eliminate backup-related downtime for non-stop big data applications.

TokuMX is an open source database and a performance engine for MongoDB. TokuMX delivers support for ACID transactions without any changes to an application, 20x performance improvements and, on the compression side, a 90% reduction in database size. When databases get extremely large, this is a significant money saver, explained Coco Jaenicke, vice president of marketing, Tokutek, in an interview.

The TokuMX Enterprise Edition is a mission-critical enterprise application because it allows operations teams to back-up databases without having to bring it down, both enabling more uptime and making it easier to use.

The TokuMX is backed by a Tokutek subscription as well as the assistance necessary to support business-grade applications. This subscription offers tools and utilities, on-demand technical support. “Our customers and subscribers have a relationship with our engineers; they have visibility into the road map and have influence on the road map,” said Jaenicke.

TokuMX Enterprise Edition is available for free download with 30 days of support at
