“Cameras are now everywhere. Large-scale video processing is a grand challenge representing an important frontier for analytics, what with videos from factory floors, traffic intersections, police vehicles, and retail shops. It’s the golden era for computer vision, AI, and machine learning – it’s a great time now to extract value from videos to impact science, society, and […]

DDSketch: a fast and fully-mergeable quantile sketch with relative-error guarantees Masson et al., VLDB’19 Datadog handles a ton of metrics – some customers have endpoints generating over 10M points per second! For response times (latencies) reporting a simple metric such as ‘average’ is next to useless. Instead we want to understand what’s happening at different … Continue reading DDSketch: a fast and fully-mergeable quantile sketch with relative-error guarantees

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 …

Introduction We all know that selecting the right technology for your business-critical systems is hard. You first have to decide what characteristics are most important to you, and then you need to identify the technologies that fit that profile. The problem is that you typically only get a superficial view of how technologies work, and […]

SLOG: serializable, low-latency, geo-replicated transactions Ren et al., VLDB’19 SLOG is another research system motivated by the needs of the application developer (aka, user!). Building correct applications is much easier when the system provides strict serializability guarantees. Strict serializability reduces application code complexity and bugs, since it behaves like a system that is running on … Continue reading SLOG: serializable, low-latency, geo-replicated transactions

In June 2019, we announced the inclusion of Hazelcast Jet as a runner for Apache Beam. Now it’s time for an example showing how it’s done. As a bonus, it’s not “Word Count.” IoT Data The data we will use is a series of 2,000 GPS points and time offsets: # Latitude, Longitude, Time-Offset 45.417,8.179,1629 45.417,8.178,1630 […]

IPA: invariant-preserving applications for weakly consistent replicated databases Balegas et al., VLDB’19 IPA for developers, happy days! Last we week looked at automating checks for invariant confluence, and extending the set of cases where we can show that an object is indeed invariant confluent. I’m not going to re-cover that background in this write-up, so … Continue reading IPA: invariant-preserving applications for weakly consistent replicated databases

In this presentation, recorded shortly after MemSQL introduced MemSQL Pipelines, two MemSQL engineers describe MemSQL’s underlying architecture and how it matches up perfectly to Kafka, including in the areas of scalability and exactly-one updates. The discussion includes specific SQL commands used to interface MemSQL to Kafka, unleashing a great deal of processing power from both technologies. In the video, the MemSQL people go on to describe how to try this on your own laptop, with free-to-use MemSQL software. Introduction to MemSQL: Carl Sverre I want to start with a question. What is MemSQL? It’s really important to understand the underpinnings …

The MemSQL Forums are seeing more and more community contributions – not just timely and incisive questions, but answers from the community, and valuable content contributions as well. We have two new community stars for the summer, and some valuable Q&As flying back and forth. What Makes an Online Community Work? Participation in any online community is mostly optional. People always have a lot of ways they can spend their time, so for an online community to take off, it has to offer a lot to people. So it’s notable that the MemSQL Forums are seeing more and more answered …

John Sherwood, a senior engineer at MemSQL on the query optimizer team, presented at MemSQL’s Engineering Open House in our Seattle offices last month. He gave a technical introduction to the MemSQL database, including its support for in-memory rowstore tables and disk-backed columnstore tables, its SQL support and MySQL wire protocol compatibility, and how aggregator and leaf nodes interact to store data and answer queries simultaneously, scalably, and with low latencies. He also went into detail about code generation for queries and query execution. Following is a lightly edited transcript of John’s talk. – Ed. This is a brief technical …

A new report from RT Insights describes the benefits of real-time transaction processing in banking and financial services and shows how traditional database architectures interfere with real-time data movement. In order to get the benefits of real-time transaction processing, such as improved portfolio management, fast credit card fraud and acceptance checks, and others, banks and other financial services institutions need to use a translytical database, combining the best of transaction and analytical data processing capabilities in a single, fast, scalable system. A Real-Time Database for Banking What is a real-time database? And why would you need one for banking and …
