“At Caffeinated Capital, we believe in the future of data as a primary driver for the digital economy, and MemSQL is well positioned to serve this market,” said Raymond Tonsing, Founder and Managing Director, Caffeinated Capital. “We have been impressed by the talented team, and their ability to solve challenging problems in a massive, growing market.

MemSQL will use the funds to accelerate growth across the company including engineering, sales, support, and marketing. MemSQL continues to assemble a team of database and infrastructure experts delivering the most innovative approaches to real-time analytics. The company also sits at the intersection of database innovation and a new, fast-growing market for real-time applications driven by dramatic drops in hardware costs and new use cases that involve streams of data.
In March, the company announced the general availability of MemSQL 5, a flagship release that includes breakthrough analytics performance, drives real-time business intelligence, and supports on-site deployment or across multiple cloud providers. MemSQL 5 empowers global companies to harness real-time data and use familiar SQL and SQL-focused tools to achieve immediate results.
Earlier in 2016, MemSQL was recognized as a visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse and Data Management Solutions for Analytics. This comes on the heels of MemSQL also being recognized as a visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems. Today, only five companies appear as leaders or visionaries on both of those Magic Quadrants from Gartner. Those companies are SAP, Oracle, IBM, Microsoft, and MemSQL.
“Every day, MemSQL customers harness the power of real-time data to increase business velocity, drive greater revenue, and decrease costs, and we look forward to helping companies across industries achieve similar results,” said Eric Frenkiel, CEO and co-founder, MemSQL. “We welcome our new investors who clearly understand that a proven business model in the database market is a critical foundation for growth.”
