Checked - One solution for Streaming Analytics on Big Data

Reviewed on 27/12/2019

Pros

- Super simple, we implemented the whole of our customer-facing streaming analytics data store in a 2-day hackathon
- Natively integrates with AWS & other services (we are a multi-petabyte S3 shop with huge Kafka clusters)
- Since most of it is SQL, anyone can hit the ground running in no-time, an ultra-low barrier to entry
- We saw a sub-second response on a test case with 1000 concurrent heavy API calls (scanning billions of rows across many tables + window functions etc) along with applying RBAC functionalities on the fly
- Incredibly fast out of the box, basic performance tuning will suffice 95% of use cases
- Fantastic partners to work with, super helpful, we have access to their core engineering team, +100 on Customer engagement!

Cons

In my humble opinion, it solved a very unique hard problem for us elegantly (without having to compromise on any architectural or data principles). Problem of streaming analytics on high-velocity high volume data sets with sub-second API responses can be a handful. For me, this along with other use-cases they mention is their core strength. So anything beyond these capabilities is a "Nice to have" for me. Their roadmap covers most of what the community is asking - hot back-up's, better UI, modelling etc.

Thoughts on MemSQL

Reviewed on 18/10/2019

Our primary use case for MemSQL is an enterprise data lake, which will also serve as a staging area for MemSQL data warehouses. They are currently being developed and are not in production yet. We're learning things as we go, but in general, development is going well and we're satisfied with the product.

Pros

I appreciate that MemSQL is a distributed database that runs on commodity hardware and can be scaled out as opposed to some fixed, vendor-maintained appliances like Teradata. Columnstore is a valuable feature.

Cons

The product is not fully mature. Although it uses the MySQL protocol, it does not always work with MySQL-compliant products. Some administrative functions such as incremental, point-in-time, and object-specific backups and restore are lacking. MemSQL is making progress in these areas, but it still has room to grow.

Response from MemSQL

Thanks for your feedback. We work hard every day to close any feature gaps between MemSQL and the older, legacy databases. Incremental Backup lands in version 7.0, and point-in-time restore is being actively developed, and is slated to land next year.

Note: This review was incentivized by SingleStore. I was paid to test few features, such as: Kafka integration, Ingestion and migration features. I was requested to write an honest review here after few hours and a 1 hour seminar. Therefore I do not have any significant experience with the tool, and this is like a newcomer's first experience review.

Pros

I loved the simplicity in general. It was easy to use the guides, and to follow the documentations I encountered. In some cases I dug a bit deeper just to try to find some mistakes, but for example the password is not displayed if I request the system to echo back the Kafka connection details I set up. It could have been a security issue, but they were obviously aware of this and they made sure it is not possible.
The specific things I liked is the ingestion speed is lightning fast. And to set up a Kafka linked table (real time message data in a table!) is as easy as it can possibly be.

Cons

The support. The chat is although quick and efficient, I had no issue to explain that I want a copy of the "Replicate" tool, to do similar actions that was shown on a video. The agent confirmed he understood correctly what I said, and that he needs to escalate this as I was a trial user. But of course given I was hired by them they will probably make an exception.
But I was shocked that a week later I got a very generic reply and a link to an unrelated page. Like only the higher topic was understood, and all my request to have a copy of the Replicate tool was lost.
I reported my disappointment towards SingleStore, and after all they are working on improving this mow. It is uncomfortable to leave this story here but necessary to understand I believe that with Support you can have hiccups and you might need to repeat yourself.

SingleStore is much useful for Real-Time data Analytic and Reporting feature and that is the key feature we looking towards Relational Database For local testing it is considerable that it consume too much memory consumption and that area is need to be improved to bring best out of it towards developer point of view.

Pros

It has faster query result in RDBMS platform along with high availability with the possibilities of loading data from different sources with real time data support. It has unique ingest capability to do parallel ingest of data from different sources with distributed and partition feature with M-S architecture. This standout SingleStore from others.

Cons

I believe it should have better User interface to support dynamic query creation along with that if it provide powerful Data virtualization options that would be nice.
