"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."
