Companies with large numbers of geographically distributed assets increasingly need intelligent real-time monitoring to keep operations running smoothly. Consider a retail chain of stores or restaurants with tens of thousands of outlets. (Walgreens has more than 9,000, and McDonald’s has more than 14,000 in the U.S. alone.) Each store has mission-critical equipment, such as refrigerators […]

MemSQL is garnering a lot of positive attention on business solutions review site G2.com (formerly known as G2 Crowd). Since our look at the site last July, dozens of new reviews have been posted, citing MemSQL’s speed, high capacity, and SQL compatibility, among other features. However, the most recent review was in December; now, some lucky MemSQL user has the chance to register the first comment of the new year. (Also, as most would say, of the new decade, though – as xkcd points out – this is a matter of some controversy.) G2.com features information and frank user reviews …

Ironies of automation, Bainbridge, Automatica, Vol. 19, No. 6, 1983 With thanks to Thomas Depierre for the paper recommendation. Making predictions is a dangerous game, but as we look forward to the next decade a few things seem certain: increasing automation, increasing system complexity, faster processing, more inter-connectivity, and an even greater human and societal … Continue reading Ironies of automation

It’s time for us to admit what we have all known is true for a long time: NoSQL is the wrong tool for many of the modern application use cases, and it’s time that we move on. NoSQL came into existence because the databases at the time couldn’t handle the scale required. The rise of this new generation of data services solved many of the problems of web scale and rapidly growing data sets when it was created more than a decade ago. NoSQL also offered a new, cost-effective method for cold storage/occasional batch access for petabyte scale data. However, …

Let’s start off the New Year with a fun code example! This example shows how Jet is used to spot the dramatically-named Death Cross for the price of Bitcoin, which is an indication to sell, Sell, SELL!. The idea here is that we could automatically analyze stock market prices and use this information to guide […]

Welcome to another year of The Morning Paper! Over the holidays I spent some time mapping out a partial conference calendar for the year, and thinking about the kinds of papers I want to be reading. In a typical year, I’ll cover somewhere north of 120 papers on this blog. That’s a tiny drop in … Continue reading The Year Ahead

Why did the world need MemSQL? In this blog post, updated from a few years ago, early MemSQL Product Manager Carlos Bueno explains why MemSQL works better, for a wide range of purposes, than a NoSQL setup. (Thanks, Carlos!) We’ve updated the blog post with new MemSQL product features, graphics, and relevant links. To wit, you should also see Rick Negrin’s famous blog post on NoSQL and our recent case study on replacing Hadoop with MemSQL. Tell us if this sounds familiar. Once upon a time a company ran its operations on The Database Server, a single machine that talked …

“Container and orchestration technologies have made a quantum leap in manageability for microservice architectures.  Kubernetes is the clear winner in this space.  It’s taken a little longer, but recently Kubernetes has turned a corner in its maturity and readiness to handle stateful workloads, so you’re going to see 2020 be the year of Kubernetes adoption […]

SME Solutions Group is a MemSQL partner. An SME customer, a utility company, was installing a new meter network, comprising 2 million meters, generating far more data than the old meters. The volume of data coming in, and reporting needs, were set to overwhelm their existing, complex, Hadoop-based solution. The answer: replacing 10 different data processing components with a single MemSQL cluster. The result: outstanding performance, scalability for future requirements, the ability to use standard business intelligence tools via SQL, and low costs. SME Solutions Group (LinkedIn page here) helps institutions manage risks and improve operations, through services such as …

This blog post was originally published in January 2014, and it has long been the first blog post on the MemSQL blog – and one of the best. In this blog post, MemSQL co-founding engineer Adam Prout explains one of the key technical features that distinguishes MemSQL: its use of skiplist indexes over Btrees and similar structures. Adam has now revised and updated this blog post to include the recently released MemSQL 7.0 and MemSQL SingleStore™. The most popular data structure used for indexing in relational databases is the Btree (or its variant the B+tree).  Btrees rose to popularity because …
