Good news, everyone! Today we’re releasing MemSQL Community Edition on the Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure Marketplaces. Many of our customers run MemSQL in the cloud, and often their entire infrastructure. An even larger number try MemSQL first on the cloud before pulling it into their production systems.
A great example is VCare, currently using MemSQL deployed on AWS cloud instances to power its online, real-time charging platform. VCare supports Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs), whose customers pay for a certain number of minutes. With its end-to-end software solution, VCare can verify that there is sufficient balance available for users to make phone calls or send text messages. The entire process takes place in milliseconds to ensure there is no lapse in service, supported by the cloud.
Now it is easier than ever to get started. With just a few clicks you can launch a “cluster in a box” on a single virtual machine, and run our DB Speed Test within minutes. The DB Speed Test is a 30-second performance benchmark that comes with MemSQL Ops, and current frequently push over 1 million inserts per second on a single virtual machine.
You can also launch a multi-vm MemSQL cluster on AWS using our Cloud Formation Template generator.
AWS and Azure are two of the largest and most broadly adopted cloud platforms. Azure currently offers the largest instance available to support in-memory databases, like MemSQL, with 448 GB of RAM. Cloud platforms provide the agility that many businesses need to scale growing volumes of data, which can be put to use powering applications, monitoring datacenters for abnormalities, and more. We are excited to make MemSQL in-memory technology available to everyone with access to Community Edition on AWS and Azure marketplaces.
