Anonymous UserAD - Associate Director at a financial services firm
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is Impala, the querying engine, which is very fast."
"We also really like the Cloudera community. You can have any question and will have your answer within a few hours."
"The most valuable feature is Kubernetes."
"The main advantage is the storage is less expensive."
"The product as a whole is good."
"I don't see any performance issues."
"MemSQL supports the MySQL protocol, and many functions are similar, so the learning curve is very short."
"There is a maximum of a one-gigabyte block size, which is an area of storage that can be improved upon."
"Without the big data environment, we cannot store all of this data live. We have billions of records and terabytes of storage to be used. It's not an option actually for us to have a big data environment."
"The price of this solution could be lowered."
"Currently, we are using many other tools such as Spark and Blade Job to improve the performance."
"There are better solutions out there that have more features than this one."
"It could be faster and more user-friendly."
"There should be more pipelines available because I think that if MemSQL can connect to other services, that would be great."
"When comparing with Oracle Sybase and SQL, it's cheaper. It's not expensive."
"The price could be better for the product."
"I would advise users to try the free 128GB version."
