"Kx Systems announced today that it is releasing Kdb for Linux. Kdb is a relational database management system extended for time series. Currently available on Unix and NT, Kx has added Kdb for Linux in response to customer demand in the telecommunications and financial services industries."

"Kdb on Linux provides an inexpensive, robust and reliable alternative for high performance database applications. Janet Lustgarten, president and co-founder of Kx, says, "We are porting to Linux because we think it is an industrial strength operating system. Like Kdb, Linux is extremely reliable, so in combination they are perfect for building mission critical database applications. Since Kdb is tiny, with a footprint under 200K, it is ideal for embedded and remote devices. With Linux, this enables our customers to build fast, distributed applications that run 24/7."

"Arthur Whitney, inventor of Kdb, and co-founder of Kx, is leading a "birds of a feather" session at the LinuxWorld Expo...on Wednesday, February 2nd at 5:45 PM. This session, titled "Building Enterprise Databases on Linux," will describe analytic databases being used in the telecommunications and financial services industries. These applications are performing 10-100 times faster than with other database products."
