From kdb+ to monetDB open source fast database
After seeing job posts, this article lead me to this database choice:
We’ve created a roundup of the top column-oriented database systems: http://www.timestored.com/time-series-data/column-oriented-databases
This includes kdb+ and some open source alternatives.
We have done some initial work at benchmarking common time-series queries and found open source monetDB to be particularly fast…we will hopefully be able to publish some of those results at a later date.
So that lead me to MonetDB (same as kdb+ which is an in memory column store)
This is also compatible with FreeBSD
vs my fave Redis NOSQL but these are completely different animals
