With the arrival of the cloud, organizations face new opportunities – and new challenges. Chief among them is how to take the greatest advantage of public and private cloud resources without being locked into a specific cloud or being barred from access to existing infrastructure. Container solutions such as Docker offer part of the solution, making it much easier to develop, deploy, and manage software. In our webinar, product manager Micah Bahti describes how to take advantage of the next step: Using Kubernetes, and the MemSQL Kubernetes Operator, to manage containers across public clouds and existing infrastructure. Until recently, however, …

Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a concept has been around since the development of computational devices, as early as the creation of Turing machines during World War II. The term itself was first coined by University of Washington professor John McCarthy in 1956, and now, 60+ years later we see the actual commercialization of AI. Why […]

MemSQL has spent the last six years on a single mission: developing the fastest, most capable database on the market for a new generation of workloads. Today’s businesses are beginning to win or lose on their ability to use data to create competitive advantage, and technology teams at these companies need data infrastructure that can meet an increasingly broad set of requirements, perform well at scale, and fit easily with existing processes and tools. MemSQL 6.8 is the latest release of the database that meets this challenge. Whether accelerating and simplifying the use of data to improve customer experiences, or …

Many companies, including our customers, have invested heavily in Hadoop infrastructure. In a recent blog post, we explored the topic of hype when it came to enterprises deploying Hadoop across their organizations, and ultimately where Hadoop falls short for certain use cases. Using MemSQL, many of our customers have been able to augment Hadoop using our HDFS Pipelines feature, allowing them to quickly ingest from the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and perform analysis of their data in real time. With MemSQL 6.8, we are happy to announce our support for Kerberos and wire encryption for HDFS Pipelines. Kerberos is …

In this blog post, I’ll focus on new query processing capabilities in MemSQL 6.8. The marquee query feature is just-in-time (JIT) compilation, which speeds up query runtimes on the first run of a query – now turned on by default. We have also improved performance of certain right and left outer joins and related operations, and Rollup and Cube. In addition, we add convenience features, including sub-select without an alias, and extended Oracle compatibility for date and time handling functions. Finally, new array functions for splitting strings and converting JSON data are added. Other improvements in 6.8 are covered elsewhere. …

In this blog post, part one of a two-part series, we look at the state of Hadoop from a macro perspective. In the second part of this series, we will look at how Hadoop and MemSQL can work together to solve many of the problems described here. 2008 was a big year for Apache Hadoop. It appeared organizations had finally found the panacea for working with exploding quantities of data with the rise of mobile and desktop web. Yahoo launched the world’s largest Apache Hadoop production application. They also won the “terabyte sort” benchmark, sorting a terabyte of data in …
