SAP HANA vs. MemSQL

SAP HANA
Slow Data Ingest
Slower transactions and poor data ingest throughput due to architecture. Unable to deliver parallel lock-free ingest for streaming data.
MemSQL
Unbeatable Speed
Scale-out shared-nothing architecture provides a robust parallel execution engine for queries. Proven with industry benchmarks: TPC-C, TPC-H, & TPC-DS.
SAP HANA
Scale Limits
Not natively distributed; requires manual sharding and costly data re-distribution.
MemSQL
No-Limits Scalability
Scale-out architecture efficiently and quickly responds to growing workloads, leveraging commodity hardware without add-ons or specialized tuning expertise.
SAP HANA
Maintenance Complexity
Hardware and software configurations tightly integrated, resulting in challenging patches and upgrades that tie up DBA resources.
MemSQL
Single Product Simplicity
Rapidly deploy the integrated software-only environment on standard hardware for dramatically reduced complexity and improved manageability.
SAP HANA
Expensive TCO
Requires specialized hardware, maintenance contracts, database options, & upgrade fees. In-memory-only means higher TCO for OLAP workloads.
MemSQL
Cost Effective
Simple, single-product subscription, with a software-only platform that’s easy to manage and patch, delivers performance with dramatic cost savings.
SAP HANA
Locked-In Ecosystem
Requires specialized and certified hardware. Not DevOps-ready, resulting in complex admin operations. Downtime during scale out. In-built DR solution is inadequate.
MemSQL
Flexible Ecosystem
DevOps-ready and deploy anywhere, including on-premises or any cloud. Leverages the MySQL wire protocol and JDBC/ODBC interface to integrate with the most popular data services and software tools.
