Kx Systems - Billions of streaming or historical records

www.kx.com Applications such as trading and risk management have required high-performance databases for years, and now virtually all industries are experiencing the challenges of implementing scalable databases that can be queried in realtime.

With traditional relational database systems, you must make a trade-off between fast inserts or fast queries as the database grows. Today, millions of records of streaming data are collected daily, and query speed is being compromised. Kx products are designed to scale for fast analysis without compromising data management.
