MemSQL Intro: Resize MemSQL Helios Cluster
In this video, we discuss nodes and partitions in a MemSQL database, and discuss how carefully matching the partition count and leaf node count avoids data skew, wasted memory in our cluster. We login to the MemSQL Customer Portal, connect to a MemSQL Helios cluster created previously, examine the partitions and nodes, and compute an appropriate new scale. Finally we edit the cluster to achieve the new scale. With the managed MemSQL Helios cluster, there’s no hardware to buy to get additional scale from our cluster.
