"Kdb Gets Sub-second Response on Billion-Row Databases."

"Kx Systems, a pioneer in high performance vector-based technology, announced today that it has built a multi-billion tick database application that gives traders and analysts a powerful new tool for making investment decisions. Based on Kdb, its ultra-high performance relational database, Kx has built a demonstration version of the solution in partnership with the Concorde Group Ltd., to show at the LinuxWorld Expo in NYC next week. This solution leverages the efficiency of Red Hat Linux and utilizes high performance, high-density compute servers."

"From the same "break the mold" philosophy that started Linux, Kdb from Kx Systems takes on industry icons like Oracle and IBM with Kdb. Kdb's unique design optimizes data storage and retrieval, resulting in the ability to perform complex analyses at speeds 10 to 1000 times faster than traditional databases. This improvement in query speed makes it possible to analyze enormous amounts of data in real time."
