Redis NOSQL proven for C++ in memory databases as compared to SQLite, Berkeley DB for HFT, Save $250K as compared to kdb +

Hi there

My march to building a high frequency trading is gathering steam pretty quickly. My backend called Redis has proven itself.

Finally, I got Redis working with a complete demo of its high speed in memory database capabilities. I even tested it with 100 millions rapid inserts . The video demo of this is here. All the C++ source code is available for my Premium members .

Do I really need to go on the benefits of this?  
As compared to other C++ in memory databases, SQLite is way to limiting as you can really only
have one client insert at a time. I find Berkeley DB is very cumbersome and
involved to set up. The tutorials I also saw were not really helpful. Thanks Oracle!
As for those posts on Monday, I decided to come away with a general consensus is
that most people within the community of QuantLabs.net are real world practioners
as the most popular postings referred back to cost or commercial vendors. Here are
some examples:
Now the way I am going, Redis alone could save me a $250K as compared to a typical kdb+ implementation.
If it proves itself in terms of speed and stability, this could save me thousands.
Redis could also save me the nightmare of maintaining horrific code if done in FPGA, CUDA, or
GPU. Bleh.
Did I mention the recent announcement of how R can handle 12000+ cores? Believe it. Until next time.
Remember, I have Youtube videos showing C++ calling R. Is this the next generation in HFT? 
Again, until next time.
See ya

Better get on that Premium Membership as I raise the rates. It may get pricey as I start posting these critical C++ components to help you build an speedy HFT platform from the ground up.

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!
