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 »

"It has a very huge bandwidth and data transfer.""This solution is very fast.""If you want to scale with new processes and new reports, that's fairly easy.""The most value for us was in terms of using it to issue tenders online. We host our server, but it is open to the public, so clients who want to buy those tenders were able to go online, put their tender documents up, and we could evaluate them using SAP.""Integration is the most valuable feature we use SAP HANA for.""One feature I find very valuable, is the response time of the application on the database memory.""The functionality is of the solution is very good.""The data storage requirement is reduced from the original database to the HANA database."

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

More MemSQL Cons »

"The solution is very expensive, however. The pricing depends on the number of users and many other factors that affect licensing.""The inclusion of a well-performing Time Machine is vital.""In terms of improvement, the speed is not as good as we thought it would be. That is why we are trying different solutions that will be built with different technologies.""The interface is a little bit hard to customize. You almost have to consult the SAP original developer to change it.""FI, or the financial module of SAP, has room for improvement. It has to have some better localization for the Middle East, especially in regards to taxes and the letter of credit cycle. I would like to see better localization from the HCM.""If the developers were to enhance or improve the application logic while processing the transactions, that would be great.""The challenge right now is all databases are on S4 HANA architecture. You're running it for HANA, but not all the functionalities are available. If they can speed up getting all the databases on S4 HANA that would help.""I think that the pricing is high and it needs improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I would advise users to try the free 128GB version."

More MemSQL Pricing and Cost Advice »

"People who are technical will accept the cost, but financially they will assess whether this solution will bring them revenue or not. People often ask, how will I profit when the cost is so high?""It is expensive, which isn't a problem for us because SAP HANA is processing the data so fast.""SAP HANA is an expensive product.""It is expensive.""Setup and licensing require planning and proper budgeting, as it is not cheap."
