⏱️ Faster is Better: The Future of Analytics is 1-Trillion Rows Per Second
• Free swag-giveaways, beer, drinks and fun foods! • Eric Hanson, Principal Product Manager, MemSQL • A Database Month event: Today's world is always connected, and constantly creating data. As a result, today's intelligent applications need to respond and react immediately to drive business value. It is well known that having an interactive response time of under a quarter of a second gives people incredible satisfaction. When you deliver response time that drops down to about a quarter of a second, results seem to be instantaneous to users. With large data sets and concurrency needs, giving all customers that level of speed can seem beyond reach. This can sometimes result in developers taking shortcuts, such as precomputing summary aggregates. This can lead to a rigid user experience where if you tweak your query a little, for example adding an extra grouping column, suddenly it runs orders of magnitude slower. It also means that your answers are not real time, i.e. not on the latest data. To push the frontier of real-time insight, MemSQL and Intel have worked together to run a single SQL query that achieves over a trillion rows per second scan with grouping and aggregation. The ability to do a query at this speed was based on the latest MemSQL release running on a cluster with 24 Intel Xeon Platinum 8180 Processors with 26 cores each. MemSQL uses AVX-2 SIMD extensions and vectorized operations directly on encoded columnstore data to enable this result. In this session, we will discuss how running queries this fast on industry-standard hardware can enhance analytics in your applications. ••• Eric Hanson, Principal Product Manager, MemSQL ••• Eric Hanson is a principal product manager at MemSQL, responsible for query processing, extensibility, and geo-spatial feature areas. He is a PhD graduate of UC Berkeley, was an Air Force officer, a professor of computer science at the University of Florida during the 1990s, and a principal program manager and developer in the SQL Server team at Microsoft from[masked]. Eric was named a Hive committer for contributions to Stinger. He is a technology expert on data warehousing, column stores, and vectorized query execution. • Swag giveaway + food/drinks at 6:30pm • Power-Networking at 6:35pm • Presentation starts at 6:40pm Please help a foster child who has no parents learn to become a self-sufficient IT professional through the Techie Youth charity. Please go to and learn how you can help a foster-kid who desperately needs you - they have no one else!

Learn amazing new data tech from technology creators, founders & tech execs CEO / CTO / CIO / VP.

All of our presentations are geared for a general-audience of people interested in database technologies; many events go into deep-tech but always include prerequisite knowledge so that all attendees (beginners to advanced) can expect to be able to grasp the concepts and leave much more knowledgeable.

SQL NYC is the world's largest database community on Meetup, focusing on NoSQL, NewSQL & Big Data.

Prior speakers have included:
- Creator of MySQL
- Both founders, CEO and CTO, of MongoDB
- Inventor of PHP

- Founder of Microsoft Azure DocumentDB
- CEO of Couchbase
...and the list goes on...

About our SQL NYC community, written by Edward Oates:
(Ed Oates co-founded Oracle Corporation with Larry Ellison)

Data is at the center of our technological revolution: acquiring it, accessing it, searching it, analyzing it, and securing it. Nearly everything else we do is to provide a user friendly window for those activities.

Gathering to learn about data management and security is a vital activity to motivate the innovators who will sustain our technological progress and who will make the break through inventions that advance us by leaps rather than steps.

Database Month Festival (
To remain cutting-edge, we host the biannual Database Month ( festival, focusing on:


NoSQL including MongoDB, Couchbase, Aerospike, CouchDB, Redis, Riak, Cloudant

NewSQL such as NuoDB, VoltDB, MemSQL

MySQL forks & alternatives like Clustrix, MariaDB, Percona, Drizzle

Big data technologies like Hadoop, Cassandra, MarkLogic, HPCC
