A huge proportion of MemSQL's customer workloads have ad-hoc analytical queries that need to finish(More)
Real-time analytics on massive datasets has become a very common need in many enterprises. These applications require not only rapid data ingest, but also quick answers to analytical queries operating on the latest data. MemSQL is a distributed SQL database designed to exploit memory-optimized, scale-out architecture to enable real-time transactional and(More)
