Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"MemSQL supports the MySQL protocol, and many functions are similar, so the learning curve is very short."
"Scalability seems good. I've never been even close to finding the limits. I've run a couple of notes of redundancy but I've never had any problems with scalability."
"We haven't had any issues with stability."
"It's easy to add and remove things in MongoDB. You can alter the tables. MongoDB is faster at reading, slower at writings."
"We can define security rules at the database level or the cluster level to grant or deny access to particular users."
"The community is great if you have problem."
"MongoDB is extremely developer-friendly because when you are starting, there is very little time needed upfront in terms of planning."
"I find the integration with other tools very easy."
"The most valuable feature is the geometric information done with GeoJSON."
"There should be more pipelines available because I think that if MemSQL can connect to other services, that would be great."
"More stable indexes would be helpful in a future release. That's been an issue for some time. I don't know if it's been fixed now but we transitioned to it because we needed a search index to be able to search for things and if that goes or starts disappearing, we have to move away from that solution. I don't know if they fixed it, last time I had this issue was three years ago so they might have solved it."
"We find it difficult to incorporate MongoDB in some projects."
"The transaction could use improvement. From MySQL, for example, you cannot create a transaction if you are reading and writing a document at the same time."
"Data encryption is possible using third-party tools but they should have their own encryption capability built-in to this solution."
"You need integration with other tools to run the query in MongoDB."
"MongoDB should not be used for reporting, analytics, or number-crunching tasks."
"Simplifying the aggregation framework would be an improvement."
"There should be better integration with other databases."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"I would advise users to try the free 128GB version."
"We are using the Community Edition of MongoDB."
"It is rather expensive."
"MongoDB is an open-source solution."
"This is an open-source solution."
"We use the open-source version, which is available to use free of charge."
"I don't know, but I have heard from people who procure it that it is much cheaper than Oracle."
