Hypertable for quant development- An open source, high performance, scalable database
Hypertable has been under development for five years and is an open source, scalable database modeled after Google’s proprietary Bigtable database. Hypertable has been deployed as part of a Financial trading system, holding 1/2 trillion records of historical financial trade data on a relatively small cluster (16 machines). It might be a good fit for your application.
Hypertable is an open source project based on published best practices and our own experience in solving large-scale data-intensive tasks. Our goal is nothing less than that Hypertable become the world’s most massively parallel..NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
