MemSQL Meetups - Year in Review

It has been six months since we began hosting meetups regularly at MemSQL. Our office is located in the heart of SoMa, two blocks from the Caltrain station. At the new San Francisco epicenter of tech startups, we want to meet our neighbors and see what other cool technologies are out there! What better way than over cold brews, local pizza and deep tech talks. In honor of the first official meetup of 2016, we decided to take a look back at the meetups of 2015, and share highlights from each...


Case Study: How Tradelab Enables Real-Time Bidding with MemSQL

Tradelab, a programmatic marketing platform company based in France, uses MemSQL to process and analyze real-time bidding data for hundreds of customers. Challenge: NoSQL Data Latency The Tradelab real-time ad serving platform requires a heavy mixed read/write workload, and the NoSQL database they had in place was introducing unnecessary data latency into the ad-bidding process. The company began searching for a replacement – a true real-time data management solution with two key...


The Benefits of an In-Memory Database

Our CTO and co-founder Nikita Shamgunov recently sat down with Software Engineering Daily. In the interview, Nikita focused on the ideal use cases for an in-memory database, compared to a disk-based store, and clarified how MemSQL compares to MySQL. In this post, we will dig deeper into how we define the ‘in-memory database’ and summarize its benefits. What is MemSQL? MemSQL is a high-performance in-memory database that combines the horizontal scalability of distributed systems with...

What's Hot and What's Not in Working With Data

Data is often considered to be the foundation of many global businesses. Data fuels daily operations, from customer transactions to analytics, from operations to communications. So we decided to answer the question: what’s hot and what’s not in working with data today? HOT: Letting your database be a database Databases were constructed to store data. However, sometimes applications are used to store data itself, a result of legacy database limitations. Storing data in an application makes...


Apache Spark Resources

Essential Resources for Apache Spark

There’s no doubt about it. Apache Spark is well on its way to becoming a ubiquitous technology. Over the past year, we’ve created resources to help our users understand the real-world use cases for Spark as well as showcase how our technologies compliment one another. Now, we’ve organized and consolidated those materials into this very post. Videos Pinterest Measures Real-Time User Engagement with Spark Demo of real-time data pipeline processing and analyzing re-pins...

Lambda Architecture

Real-Time Stream Processing Architecture with Hadoop and MemSQL

With Hadoop Summit Europe underway today, we wanted to share some thoughts on how MemSQL fits in to the Hadoop ecosystem. While MemSQL and Hadoop are both data stores, they fill different roles in the data processing and analytics stack. The Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) enables businesses to store large volumes of immutable data, but by design, it is used almost exclusively for batch processing. Moreover, newer execution frameworks, that are faster and storage agonistic, are...
