So we are taking the time to explain Kubernetes’ architecture, from the top down, to help you decide whether using Kubernetes is right for you.  What is Kubernetes? Kubernetes is an open-source orchestrator originally built by Google, now owned and managed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

The MEAN stack – MongoDB, Express.js, Angular.js, and Node.js – has served as a pattern for a wide variety of web development. But times have changed, and the components of the MEAN stack have failed to keep up with the times. Let’s take a look at how the MEAN stack superseded the previous stack, the LAMP stack, and at the options developers have now for delivering efficient Web applications.

This blog post is part of a series describing how to run an entire MemSQL cluster – which usually requires at least five servers or machine instances – on your laptop, in a Linux virtual machine (VM). That’s right – even though MemSQL is a distributed system, you can run a minimal version of MemSQL on your laptop, in a single Linux VM. We tell you how in this blog post.  You also have the option of running MemSQL on your laptop in other environments – see our blog posts for Docker Desktop, Kubernetes, and Linux.  You should use the …

This is the second part of a two-part blog post; part one is here. The recent release of MemSQL 7.0 has fast replication as one of its major features. With this release, MemSQL offers high-throughput, synchronous replication that, in most cases, only slows MemSQL’s very fast performance by about 10%, compared with asynchronous replication. This is achieved in a very high-performing, distributed, relational database. In this talk, available on YouTube, Rodrigo Gomes describes the high points as to how MemSQL achieved these results.  Rodrigo Gomes is a senior engineer in MemSQL’s San Francisco office, specializing in distributed systems, transaction processing, …
