MemSQL Launches In-Memory Database

Startup MemSQL has gone public with the launch of its in-memory database, and has named a number of investors who are backing it to the tune of $5 million.  A key feature of the database is the translation of queries from SQL to C++ in order to boost performance.

Other key features pitched by the company include:

  • Predictable sub-millisecond response times for faster retrieval and analysis on massive datasets
  • Increased transactional throughput on commodity hardware
  • Distributed architecture for scale
  • Real-time analytics on data in flux
  • Durability and replication in event of failure
  • One-command install and flat learning curve for MySQL users
  • Benefits of SQL at NoSQL speeds

MemSQL – founded last year by Eric Frenkiel, CEO, and Nikita Shamgunov, CTO – also announced that the company has secured a total of $5 million in funding.  The company’s investors are a combination of venture capitalists and angels, including First Round Capital, IA Ventures, NEA, SV Angel, Y Combinator, Paul Buchheit, Ashton Kutcher, Max Levchin and Aaron Levie.
