Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"MemSQL supports the MySQL protocol, and many functions are similar, so the learning curve is very short."

More MemSQL Pros »

"Normally, every database server uses hard disks. In-Memory has a feature, apart from their database, which is very good. When we start our server, all your data needs loading memory. We can use that. It's a very good feature. I think they added this feature in 2019. We can mount memory in the partition, create partitions in there, and create table space from that spot to share. It's a really good feature. We use it a lot.""The solution is very fast.""The scalability of the solution is very good. It's able to support large amounts of data.""The most valuable aspects of this solution are the fast caching and improved performance to the database""The application development is very user-friendly."

Cons
"There should be more pipelines available because I think that if MemSQL can connect to other services, that would be great."

"We use some partitions in In-Memory. We have a very large table and a low dose. It is very expensive in data to load all of them into In-Memory. It takes up more memory slots in the server, as well as a lot of RAM. We use last partitions on the table. We always need to create a script and make a schedule that can load a last partition in In-Memory. Oracle doesn't have features to do this automatically. I would like them to allow us to load last partitions, as well as other table partitions, in In-Memory. I think a good feature would do that automatically, letting you see a table, load a large partition, and monitor loading memory. It's quite a good feature.""The solution is quite expensive.""Technical support is below our expectations currently. It could be improved.""They should lower the price. My customers think that it's too expensive.""The pricing could be improved. It would ideal if it was more reasonable."
