Many businesses are still relying on the promise of legacy disk-based databases for Big Data, but are discovering they are unable to deliver the performance and scalability needed. On the other hand, in-memory technology is being adopted by savvy businesses, enabling them to make better data-driven decisions with real-time analytics, accelerate application performance, and discover competitive advantages.

In this webcast, we will look at the benefits of in-memory technology and the business value it brings. Attendees will also have a chance to see the speed, scale, and simplicity of MemSQL's in-memory solution, and why it is evolving the database landscape.

  • How customers today are using in-memory databases to solve Big Data problems.
  • The speed, scale and simplicity of MemSQL's in-memory database platform (with a live demo).
