MemSQL Helios offers the same capabilities, including the ingest and query performance, scalability, and resiliency available in our self-managed software, but without having to worry about installation or cluster administration.
MemSQL automatically provisions infrastructure, deploys and configures cluster software, maintains availability, provides scalability, performs backups, and handles software upgrades including MemSQL, operating system, and system software.
The easiest way to get data into MemSQL Helios is by uploading your dataset to Amazon S3 or Google Cloud Storage and using MemSQL Pipelines to ingest your data quickly. To get started we have a guide available here: docs.memsql.com/memsql-pipelines/v6.8/s3-pipelines-quickstart.
MemSQL is built on a cloud-native and highly resilient architecture that features high availability within the cluster. When cloud instances fail, MemSQL transparently handles the failures, replaces instances, and maintains cluster availability to the application.
