Understanding Tokutek Fractal Tree Indexes

Thanks to Tim Callaghan for speaking Tuesday night at the Effective MySQL New York meetup on Fractal Tree Indexes : Theory and Practice (MySQL and MongoDB). There was a good turnout and a full room to learn how the TokuDB storage engine from Tokutek is changing how to handle big data in MySQL.

Also interesting is how the same technology has been applied for use in MongoDB including giving MongoDB transactions; a big change for NoSQL.
