The next revolution in storage--well it’s like déjà vu all over again. In my 20+ years in data center technologies, and in storage in particular, it can feel like a constant game of chasing the data bottleneck. We solve one challenge, just to move to the next bottleneck in line, and then repeat that process ...continue reading Intel® Optane™ Technology and Dell EMC PowerMax: The Revolution in Enterprise Storage

Today is the one-year anniversary of MemSQL Studio and sees the release of MemSQL Studio 1.8.1. To celebrate we have put together a brief summary of where we’ve taken MemSQL Studio in its first year, a few thoughts on how we will extend the product going forward, and an invitation to you to contribute your feedback. Just over a year ago, we launched the first release of MemSQL Studio (1.0.1). While the release notes detail everything that’s happened since, we want to reflect on the last year of development and give some additional context to these notes. How Studio Started …
