HyperDex 1.4: Performance Improvements, and Bug Fixes

HyperDex Logo

We are proud to announce HyperDex 1.4, the next generation NoSQL data store that provides ACID transactions, schema-less documents, fault-tolerance, and high-performance. Some key features of HyperDex are:

  • High Performance: HyperDex is fast. It outperforms MongoDB and Cassandra on industry-standard benchmarks by a factor of 2X or more.
  • Advanced Functionality: With the Warp add-on, HyperDex offers multi-key transactions that span multiple objects with ACID guarantees.
  • Strong Consistency: HyperDex ensures that every GET returns the result of the latest PUT.
  • Fault Tolerance: HyperDex automatically replicates data to tolerate a configurable number of failures.
  • Scalable: HyperDex automatically redistributes data to make use of new resources as you add more nodes to your cluster.

This release brings the following changes and improvements:

  • Improved Performance: Concurrency improvements in HyperLevelDB provide higher throughput to concurrent applications.
  • Improved Performance: A new on-disk format and improved replication protocol offer higher performance to all applications
  • Improved Fault Tolerance: The fault tolerance code has been refactored to reduce time to recovery, especially under massive correlated failures.
  • Improved Go Bindings: The Go bindings are up-to-date with other languages.
  • New utility: It is now possible to rename spaces with the "hyperdex mv-space" command.

HyperDex runs on 64-bit Linux (Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, Centos) and OS X. Binary packages for Debian 7, Ubuntu 12.04,14.04, Fedora 19-20, and CentOS 6 are available, as well as source tarballs for other Linux platforms.

This release provides bindings for C, C++, Python, Node.js, Java, Ruby, and Go.

An evaluation version of Warp, and Warp bindings for Python, Java, and Ruby are available in the HyperDex repository. Install the "hyperdex-warp" package in your package manager to switch from HyperDex to Warp and test out the evaluation version.
