Overall Satisfaction with SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

As a consultant and value-added reseller we position SingleStore at our enterprise customers as a hybrid database solution that can process both operational and analytical real-time workloads at the same time and at scale. Our customer demands for processing any type of data at any location with any analytical tool continue to rise and because existing cloud based platforms often are to complex, costly and limited in terms of multiple services and capabilities, SingleStore fills in an ever growing gap. With SingeStore our customer have access to a high performance, high available, distributed, relational database that can be accessed through standard ANSI SQL. SingleStore supports advanced data pipelines, all relevant data types, on-premise, cloud and hybrid configurations and is completely self-managed. Integrating and processing data from various data sources using data pipelines into the SingleStore database and consequently analyzing the data in high performance in the same database is very effective in terms of minimizing data replications, simplifying analytical processes and overall speed and performance of large operational and analytical workloads.
  • Ease of use (installation, managed service, pipelines)
  • Hybrid configuration (on-premise & cloud), analytical and transactional workload
  • ANSI SQL as a standard
  • Runs on any major cloud platform
  • More use cases needed that have their origin outside the USA
  • Faster and better analytical insights due to combined, high performance access to any data source using standard SQL
By creating a standardized data platform that has a simple to use query interface supporting all analytical tools, users have instant access to their data without getting lost in the underlying data source systems. Ease of access to data, and its metadata, as provided by SingleStore, is in itself a huge contribution to accelerating predictive analytics.
Our customers have to be prepared for massive growth in both data and analytics demands, considering an increasing complex data landscape and still ensuring easy and fast access to any type of (integrated) data for their users. SingleStore provides this solution with a powerful but easy to use scalable relational database.
