Tokutek Founders to Speak at Big Data Techcon San Francisco

Interactive, Half-Day Session to Explore Data Structures and Algorithms for Big Databases

LEXINGTON, MA--(Marketwired - Oct 14, 2014) - Tokutek®, delivering database performance at scale, today announced that co-founders Bradley Kuszmaul, research scientist at MIT, and Michael Bender, an associate professor of computer science at Stony Brook University, will co-present a half-day, hands-on session on "Data Structures and Algorithms for Big Databases," on Monday, October 27, at BigData TechCon San Francisco.

Topic: Data Structures and Algorithms for Big Databases
Date: Monday, 27 October, 2014
Time: 1:15 to 5:00 p.m.
Location: Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, CA.

This tutorial will explore data structures and algorithms for big databases. The topics include:

  • Data structures including B-trees, Log Structured Merge Trees, Streaming B-trees, and Fractal Trees,
  • Bloom filters and bloom filter alternatives designed for SSDs,
  • Index design, including covering indexes,
  • Getting good performance in memory,
  • Cache efficiency including both cache-aware and cache-oblivious data structures and algorithms.

These algorithms and data structures are used both in NoSQL implementations such as HBase, LevelDB, MongoDB, and TokuMX, and in SQL-oriented implementations such as MySQL and TokuDB. This session will explain the underlying data structures and algorithms that drive big databases. There will also be an emphasis on write-optimized data structures, such as Log Structured Merge Trees or Fractal Trees.
