Fast growing marketing performance platform contains hardware costs with improved compression and better performance
Lexington, MA, December 2, 2014 – Tokutek®, delivering database performance at scale, today announced that Performance Horizon Group (PHG), a leading provider of partner marketing solutions for enterprises, has achieved significant capacity and performance improvements with TokuMX™, the Tokutek distribution of MongoDB. Tokutek also has published a full case study “PHG Meets Capacity and Performance Challenges with TokuMX.”
Performance Horizon Group provides a world-class affiliate marketing and partner management platform that enables large enterprises to connect directly with their online and mobile publishers at scale, globally. With offices in the U.S., U.K., Japan and Australia, PHG supports its clients’ performance marketing strategies in over 150 countries.
With business growing quickly, PHG faced rapidly escalating hardware requirements and costs as well as application performance challenges related to rapidly growing datasets. Attracted by Tokutek claims of 20x to 50x performance improvements and 90% compression with TokuMX, PHG first tested, then implemented TokuMX. Overall, TokuMX helped PHG reduce the number of new servers needed, reduce the amount of RAM required for those systems, and significantly boost MongoDB application performance.
TokuMX helps MongoDB users with the most challenging big data applications dramatically improve performance and significantly reduce hardware costs with unmatched database compression, concurrency, and write optimization.
“We were hitting a capacity and performance wall with MongoDB that required us to keep throwing new servers and more RAM at the problem. With TokuMX we were able to slow the purchase of new servers by a factor of eight,” said Pete Cheyne, Performance Horizon Group co-founder and CTO. “And the new servers require only one half the RAM we’d have needed with MongoDB.”
“Fast growing companies like PHG are constantly bolstering their data centers with additional hardware and RAM as they race to keep pace with rapidly escalating MongoDB data sets,” said Dave Rosenlund, vice president of marketing at Tokutek. “TokuMX delivers a more cost-effective way of keeping these big data challenges in check.”
