A comprehensive, massive, data environment.
Kx’s software offering centers around kdb+, our powerful, high-performance, column-store relational database that is used as a central repository to store market data used by multiple departments within an enterprise. The product also includes, q, our general-purpose, vector-processing programming language, as well as modules for capturing real-time ticks and quickly loading NYSE TAQ data.
At Kx, we have come to understand that the most equitable way to license our software is by the number of cores being used. Whether a global investment bank that wants to run its entire data center on kdb+ or a small hedge fund that wants a better way to capture price fluctuations, there is a core licensing model appropriate to the need.
We also provide maintenance and product updates — including performance improvements and new functionality — for all of our software as part of our standard product licenses. And, we work with hardware manufacturers to ensure optimum performance on the latest hardware and operating systems. The result? A rich environment of powerful solutions.
