Tokutek CEO John Partridge Named Mass High Tech All-Star

Awards Recognize Tech Luminaries of New England's Innovation Economy in 2012

LEXINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2012) - Tokutek, the leader in high-performance and agile database storage engines, today announced that CEO John Partridge has been selected as a recipient of a 2012 Mass High Tech All-Star Award. The All-Star Awards recognize 15 driven and influential leaders of New England's innovation economy.

As CEO of Tokutek, John Partridge is responsible for bringing the company's database storage engine, TokuDB®, to market. Under Partridge's leadership, the company transformed its patented Fractal Tree® technology into a commercial grade, feature-complete, high-performance database storage engine. Today the company has a growing customer base that ranges from highly innovative VC-backed companies like Intent Media to market leading public companies like Limelight Networks.

"It's certainly an honor to win the 2012 Mass High Tech All-Star award and it helps put a spotlight on the importance of data management and Tokutek's contribution to the field," said John Partridge, CEO of Tokutek, Inc. "A radical departure from the conventional B-tree indexing found in most databases, Tokutek's Fractal Tree indexing is revolutionizing database insertion speed, query performance, operational agility, and data compression at a time when organizations everywhere are struggling to keep up with an avalanche of big data."

The 2012 Mass High Tech All-Stars honorees represent a broad range of technology and service sectors, including robotics, software, economic development, e-commerce, entrepreneurship, medical devices and clean-tech. They were selected from more than 100 nominees recommended by the technology community. This is the 17th year of the awards program -- and the second time the awards are being combined with the Rising Stars honorees by the Boston Business Journal.

"The BBJ has selected 15 rising stars as part of a partnership with our sister publication Mass High Tech," said Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal and Mass High Tech. "The 15 Rising Stars were nominated by readers from across all sectors and are doing remarkable things within their industries. Meanwhile, MHT's 15 Tech Luminaries choices reflect deep accomplishment in various technology-related industries. Together, it's a powerful combination of 30 notable and potent players in the local economy, and we hope their success will inspire others to innovate, which is the main driving force of the local economy."

The Innovation All-Stars and Rising Stars will be profiled in a November 16 special supplement of the Boston Business Journal and will be recognized at an evening awards celebration and networking reception on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at the House of Blues in Boston.
