jimpudar has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello esteemed colleagues,

Today MemSQL has released a free tier version for databases under 128 GB.

I would love to try this out, but haven't been able to find a DBI driver for MemSQL on CPAN.

MemSQL claims to be wire-compatible with MySQL, so it's possible the MySQL driver will work out of the box, but I haven't tried it yet.

If it doesn't work, I may try my hand at writing a driver or shim layer over the MySQL driver.

Have any of you been using the paid version with Perl already?
