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?
