Middle Eastern Technology Company, BCT Seek to Limit COVID-19 Spread Using MemSQL

In an effort to help the government in the Middle East minimize the spread of COVID-19, Bahwan Cybertek (BCT) will deploy technology from MemSQL, The Database of Now™ for operational analytics and cloud-native applications, the company said.

The effort is led by a large technology company in the region.

The client company offers digital services and information and communications technology solutions in several categories, including cybersecurity, digital media, financial technology, IT and telecommunications. For this project, it is collecting data from other telcos in the region to present the ministry with a unified view of the coronavirus situation and enable it to maximize the impact of the solution.

This project required the ingestion of data from 1.2 billion location points to be joined to 5 million 100 meters square, to specify the location of mobile phones. The location tiles are aggregated into cities, districts, and regions to provide an understanding of point-in-time population density.

MemSQL is The Database of Now, powering modern applications and analytical systems with a cloud-native, massively scalable architecture. MemSQL delivers maximum ingest, accelerated transaction processing and blisteringly fast query performance, including AI integration and machine learning models, all at the highest concurrency.
