By on

A recent announcement reports, “MemSQL is proud to announce two exciting new product releases today: MemSQL Helios, our on-demand, elastic cloud database-as-a-service, and MemSQL 7.0 Beta 2, the next major release of our database engine, featuring MemSQL SingleStore – a breakthrough new way of managing data – and new features to fully support Tier 1, system of record workloads. With MemSQL Helios, you get instant, effortless access to the world’s fastest, most scalable data platform for operational analytics, machine learning, and AI, with platform operations handled by MemSQL. Helios is a fully managed cloud service that provides you with instant access to our best-in-class operational database — on demand and at elastic scale — in public cloud environments around the world. MemSQL 7.0, which will be generally available in the coming months, brings two exciting new advance advances: MemSQL SingleStore and key features to make MemSQL “system of record” capable for Tier 1 workloads.”

The release goes on, “Data platform spending is seeing explosive growth as new applications are built to support real-time decisions, predictive analytics, and automation leveraging machine learning and AI. With this growth, and the desire for greater flexibility and cost control, more and more data workloads are moving to the cloud; see Gartner’s perspective in this recent analyst research. The vast majority of MemSQL’s customers are already deploying our database in the cloud, typically using deployment automation or container infrastructure. Many have chosen MemSQL as the cloud migration path from older, on-premises operational database implementations. The availability of MemSQL Helios, along with the imminent release of SingleStore and the new system of record capabilities, make MemSQL the ideal choice for both new applications and to move legacy operational databases to the cloud.”
