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:

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

Join my FREE newsletter to learn if I ever will seriously look at MonetDB for high speed automated trading like HFT


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!

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing.

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
