"MemSQL - MySQL companion"

What do you like best?

- Speed : Aggregate queries are very fast.

- Disk Compression: CS engine compresses data 60 to 80% on avg.

- Drop-in Solution : Low learning curve if you come from MySQL background

- Pipelines: Easiest and fastest way to ingest data . Automatically detect new data in S3 buckets.

What do you dislike?

- Lack of DB Performance monitoring: MemSQL should provide Percona PMM dashboard type of monitoring with explanation of the metrics being monitors and action to take. SolarWind for MySQL is also excellent at aggregating queries over time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are doing aggregates, have large log type tables, or need real time analytics using a "mysql" friendly environment, you should look at MemSQL. It's a great product (Sr Mysql DBA for > 10 years).

MemSQL Support is excellent. They can help you optimize your queries and make sure your system is properly configured. The 2 days on-boarding Professional Service is also a nice add-on.

I would also recommend the training. Videos are available for download, perfect for going back to them and refresh your MemSQL knowledge.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Migrate heavy write log type table from Mysql to MemSQL

- Intensive geo location queries

- Real Time Analytics : Aggregates for our applications.

"Great engine, great team!"

What do you like best?

Excellent product, great team to work with and great support!.

What do you dislike?

The engine is not that compatible with MySQL - a lot of the syntax and protocol is supported, but the behavior can be different, or there might be limitations.

Making the engine more suitable for less-savvy users would yield better adoption (my understanding is that's already a part of the company's roadmap).

Recommendations to others considering the product

- Try to get to know the product in more depth.

- Use Prometheus and Grafana for monitoring.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Replaced databases of our core operational systems with MemSQL. We mostly go after greater performance and scalability.

What Relational Databases solution do you use?
