In addition, CREATE PIPELINE provides an efficient and robust method for real-time streaming directly into MemSQL. With exactly-once semantics from Kafka, enterprises have guaranteed delivery of mission-critical data without sacrificing performance. MemSQL 5.5 also delivers improved query performance, new query profiling capabilities, and higher concurrency for distributed joins, with results demonstrating 5x faster query performance for star schema data models.

"Organizations undergoing digital transformation must adapt and learn in real time, so technology performance and reliability become imperative," said Eric Frenkiel, CEO and co-founder, MemSQL. "With MemSQL 5.5, users have immediate and guaranteed access to real-time analytics. Furthermore, exactly-once semantics allows companies to leverage Kafka for real-time access to business-critical data."

Today, the world's fastest companies rely on MemSQL for innovation in real-time streaming and analytics. With MemSQL deployed on-premises or in the cloud, enterprises can analyze streaming real-time data and historical data together -- resulting in precise analytics that are accurate to the last transaction and rich in context with access to prior data.
