Zynga Deploys MemSQL for Real-Time Service. Where Does This Leave Couchbase?

Derrick Harris reports for GigaOM about Zynga’s deployment of a MemSQL cluster:

Zynga has deployed nearly 100 nodes of MemSQL, the hot new database from two former Facebook engineers. It might not be a magic pill for Zynga’s woes, but it could help the company boost revenue and even build new types of games. […] At the very least, it could let the company do some things previously out of its reach, such as serve real-time recommendations and ads, and create advanced multi-player games.

Zynga has been the most prominent and most quoted production deployment for Couchbase. That despite the fact that Zynga has never run stock Couchbase, but a custom in-house version.

The story is clear that the new (100 nodes) MemSQL cluster is augmenting or replacing a part of the Zynga’s MySQL cluster. But they are using MemSQL to serve real-time recommendations and ads. A scenario that Couchbase teaches as one of its strenghts.
