Twiiter:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FlockDB https://github.com/twitter/flockdb

This is respected database that couild be used fpr trading but don’t count on it

This could be a secret weapon for Goldman Sachs:

Is success of Goldman Sachs in HFT and quant development with Slang/SecDB no different than Erlang/Oracle Berkeley DB?

I little birdie told me they moved to Ruby on Rails but I would asume that is the front but still with SecDB on the back end.

Where do you think high speed kdb came from? Uh. Morgan Stanley: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K_%28programming_language%29

In essenvce Redis will not cut it where a homegrown version is need with graph and NOSQL with a query language is needed. Being C and cross platform helps.

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
