Overall Satisfaction with SingleStore (formerly MemSQL)

We are proud to say that SKAI is a data company and our main asset is our data. My department handles the Measurements data and other incoming data sources. SingleStore is used across the organization to do real-time calculations, supply fast loading grids and store massive amounts of data. In our department, users needed to configure pre-hand MetaData for the calculations that they are basing their decision on. Our nightly batches used to work extremely hard and waste valuable time and resources to make this data available the next day (while storing it both in raw form and aggregated) and any changes required a rerun of the batch. Today the clients can configure, change and get their aggregated data in almost real-time, while the data is being stored in SingleStore only in its raw form. It allowed us to add more calculations and more data and use fewer resources on our server-side and the added bonus is that our clients love it!
  • Real-time calculation.
  • Massive data storage.
  • Real-time updates and integration.
  • Scaling up (adding memory) takes a lot of time.
  • Real-time information about lags is limited.
  • Our quick calculations, assisted us with sales, our competitors are not near that level.
  • It allows the client to create more calculations and bring in more data.
We got MemSQL as a given fact (my team didn't assess it).
We don't use it as a predictive analytics tool (at least not in my teams).
Scaling wasn't easy in MemSQL. It improved recently. We are mainly using it to bring in more and more data without affecting performance.

Do you think SingleStore delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with SingleStore's feature set?


Did SingleStore live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of SingleStore go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy SingleStore again?


If you need real-time calculation and reduce DB lags in production it's ideal.

If you're looking only for storage, I would pass.
