MemSQL saw its fourth quarter commercial bookings top over 200 percent year-over-year growth. This growth is partly driven by more than three times increase in add-on revenue, as once customers start using MemSQL, they maintain and expand their use of the technology. As a result of a boost in commercial customer deals and the release of MemSQL 6, the company exceeded revenue projections.

“As the demand for real-time insights on data grows, companies need a database that can handle transactions and analytics at the same time,” said Nikita Shamgunov, CEO and co-founder of MemSQL. “With MemSQL, our customers get those capabilities in one place allowing them to drive better business value from their data.”

Customer Momentum

Data-driven organizations that selected MemSQL this year to support their real-time efforts include numerous Fortune 100 enterprises, the U.S. Government, and other innovative companies across key verticals including media, energy, and finance.

These customers understand the need to stay ahead of trends and their competition. MemSQL gives them that advantage by providing them the ability to analyze their data to gain insights in real time while utilizing standard SQL which organizations find easier to consume than NoSQL technologies.

Product Enhancements

The release of MemSQL 6 delivered many new features and enhancements for customers, such as support for stored procedures and user-defined functions, improved query performance including vectorized execution (AVX2) for certain kinds of aggregation/group-by, filter, and join queries, enhanced fault tolerance, and reduced blocking for online operations. Benefits include the ability to run machine learning algorithms in a distributed SQL environment, 30-80 times performance improvements for certain kinds of queries, improved availability, and simplified application development.
