MemSQL is a specialized database vendor founded by two former Facebook engineers in 2011. The company states that it offers a real-time database that enables global enterprises to quickly analyze large volumes of data in order to generate immediate insights, increase performance and optimize data efficiency. Key points of differentiation for its database according to the company include:
- A distributed infrastructure, which runs on multiple machines with a parallel processing architecture. This system allows MemSQL to leverage cheaper, commodity hardware to crunch data and perform analysis.
- Two primary data stores, consisting of an in-memory rowstore and a disk-based columnstore, which increases the versatility and efficiency of MemSQL's database for different uses.
The company recently made available a significant new version of its product, MemSQL 6.5. MemSQL believes that this product cements the company’s position as the world’s fastest SQL database by advancing performance and adding capabilities to accelerate time to insight and simplify operations.
