Due to the explosive growth of Big Data in this world, SQL, the programming language for interacting and modifying databases, was also required to evolve in order to keep up. With such large amounts of data, servers needed to be expanded in order to accommodate all of the data. However, more servers would also mean more time to process data. A platform that can hold and process all of the data efficiently was needed. With databases being increasingly larger and increasingly more necessary for operations within a company, many companies needed to look for alternative solutions to handle the database for higher efficiency. Many different platforms to store and process data with different versions of SQL were developed, and a recent development in 2015 was the invention of DeepSQL by Deep Information Sciences. DeepSQL is a storage engine that uses MySQL, which transforms a MySQL database into a database that continually tunes itself for maximum optimization.
