HTAP, or hybrid transaction/analytics processing, combines transactions, such as updating a database, with analytics, such as finding likely sales prospects. An HTAP database supports both workloads in one database, providing speed and simplicity. Use cases include fraud prevention, recommendation engines for e-commerce, smart power grids, and AI.  HTAP databases work with – and, to a certain degree, are designed for – integration with streaming data sources, such as Kafka, and messaging systems used for advanced analytics, AI and machine learning such as Spark. They serve multiple analytics clients, from business analysts typing in SQL queries, to BI tools, apps, and …

Introduction: A Personal Anecdote When I was in college, I took an upper-level course in analytical chemistry. Several of the lab modules required my lab partner and me to make a pilgrimage deep into the bowels of the building to use the department’s gas chromatograph. Now, gas chromatography (GC) machines are complex and expensive pieces […]

In this Forbes article, Nikita Shamgunov, MemSQL co-CEO and co-founder, talks about the incredible potential of data, which he explains has the superpower to enable us to do things that were previously not possible. He adds that once datasets get really big, you need data storage that is vast and essentially bottomless. Nikita emphasizes the importance of having a data strategy that provides 360-degree visibility; has a champion in the form of a chief data officer (CDO); and addresses artificial intelligence, data management, and the user experience.

Apache Ignite can scale horizontally to accommodate the data that your applications and services generate. If your in-memory cluster is about to run out of memory space, you can take advantage of horizontal scaling, which is one of Ignite’s foundational architectural capabilities. The “throw more resources into the cluster” approach is an often-heard piece of advice. However, in practice, most of us cannot scale out a cluster in a moment.

SingleStore, first introduced in the MemSQL 7.0 release, advances quickly in MemSQL 7.1. SingleStore allows MemSQL to support the world’s largest workloads – as well as many smaller workloads – far more cost-effectively, and with better performance, than anyone has achieved to date. In this release, new SingleStore features make it even easier to support blended workloads that achieve near-rowstore performance (ie, nearly in-memory performance), but at columnstore (ie, disk-based) costs.  MemSQL SingleStore appeared in MemSQL 7.0, with notable improvements in performance and total cost of ownership (TCO) for both rowstore and columnstore workloads. In MemSQL 7.1, we make further …

MemSQL Tools is our newer approach to helping you configure and manage downloadable MemSQL software. (If you choose MemSQL Helios, we do the administration for you.) Most users are already on MemSQL Tools. In recent months, we’ve introduced a slew of new features that will encourage most remaining MemSQL users to move to Tools from our former solution, MemSQL Ops. In this blog post, I’ll describe the new features, the philosophy behind MemSQL Tools, and why we encourage you to use MemSQL Tools exclusively going forward. MemSQL introduced MemSQL tools and MemSQL Studio the year before last, to replace MemSQL …

MemSQL is steadily improving its high availability (HA)  and disaster recovery (DR) features. The design of primary partitions and their corresponding secondary partitions on leaf nodes provided HA, while the replications configured on a remote cluster support DR. MemSQL 7.0 marked a major milestone with the introduction of fast synchronous replication. This makes it much more practical to use high availability (HA) with MemSQL, as you can easily keep a live copy of your database contents in the cluster. In this release, MemSQL 7.1, we are adding a much-requested feature, fast disaster recovery failback (also known as simply DR failback). …

Apache Ignite Deployment Patterns

The Apache® Ignite™ in-memory computing platform comprises high-performance distributed, multi-tiered storage and computing facilities, plus a comprehensive set of APIs, libraries, and frameworks for consumption and solution delivery (all with a “memory first” paradigm). This rich set of capabilities enables one to configure and deploy Ignite in many diverse system patterns. The platform can be used as a simple cache, an in-memory data grid (IMDG) that offloads an underlying relational database for the acceleration of web applications.
