Q&A onWindows vs Linux, NOSQL databases, and Matlab discounting?

(Last Updated On: February 9, 2013)

Hi Bryan, I have a few questions:

1) Why use VC++ and C# .NET/Windows? C++ on Linux is what HFT firms use. Name one that uses Windows for anything but the Front End.


–> Easily productivity and better support from a commercial vendor. Many hedge funds used Windosws on all levels

2) A custom in-memory database written in C++ would be much faster than almost anything on the market. A relational DB like MYSQL or NOSQL DB like Mongo would be much too slow for HFT.
Any thoughts on this?


–> MongoDB and Redis come to mind. Search the blog at quantlabs.net/blog or youtube.com/quantlabs for details

3) Have you ever thought about contacting Mathworks and asking them
to give your membership the ability to purchase the matlab student edition? They get some of the best free advertising from you. You could also allow them to advertise on your site.


–> They only will offer to accredited universities Honestly, I don’t think they care about me as they make millions from large clients
