The database speed and performance has been more than exceptional. Integrate SingleStore DB (formerly MemSQL) with zero help from their team, which is a credit to the ease of use of the product and quality of the documentation. It is blazing fast, especially with aggregation workloads, which is a hand in glove fit for us. Using it as row or column-based is just as good, but for in-memory aggregation. Great for using in OLAP type environment
