LEXINGTON, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2014) - Tokutek, delivering database performance at scale, today announced that it has been named as one of four "Cool Vendors in DBMS, 2014″ by Gartner, Inc., the world's leading information technology research and advisory company.

Each year, Gartner identifies new Cool Vendors in key technology areas and publishes a series of research reports highlighting these innovative companies and their products. For this report, Gartner selected companies that are innovating in the DBMS space. Tokutek offers TokuDB® and TokuMX™, which address the difficult, costly challenge of "delivering high-volume transactional (write-intensive) activity at the same time as analytic (read-intensive) work at high velocities."

"With all of the excitement and new technology introduced around Big Data and its subsequent impact on the DBMS market, we believe being recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor in DBMS, 2014 is a significant honor," said John Partridge, CEO of Tokutek, Inc.

Partridge continued, "We feel the Gartner report spotlights the inventive companies who are adding to relational database technology. Tokutek is delighted to be selected as one of those companies in this Gartner report."
