Strata+Hadoop World was full of activity for MemSQL. Our keynote explained why real-time is the next phase for big data. We showcased a live application with Pinterest where they combine Spark and MemSQL to ingest and analyze real-time data. And we gave away dozens of prizes to Strata+Hadoop attendees who proved their latency crushing skills in our Query Kong game.
During the event, Mike Hendrickson of O’Reilly Media sat down with MemSQL CEO Eric Frenkiel to discuss:
The state of in-memory computing and where it will be in a year
What Spark brings to in-memory computing
Industries and use cases that are best suited for Spark
