kdb+tick: Catching fluctuations.
In addition to its capacity for capturing, managing, and analyzing billions of real-time ticks, kdb+tick processes millions of records per second, allowing customers to keep up with peak volumes on any exchange.
And, there's no need to discard in-memory data at the end of the day — it takes only about a minute to store a day's worth of ticks in memory.
With kdb+tick, you have immediate access to data as it comes in, and can run complex queries on both streaming and historical data. This combines both a CEP (complex event processing) engine and database.
Built-in feed handlers include Reuters, Tibco, and Bloomberg. Sample schemas include taq (trades and quotes to match kdb+taq), lvl2 (Nasdaq Level II quotes), futures, FX, and more. Connecting new data feeds takes from just a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the complexity of the schema.
