    WHAT IS KX
    TECHNOLOGY?

    The kdb+ database and Turing complete programming language q form the foundation of all KX technology.

     

    With a data-first approach, the software has been focused on solving problems in high velocity, high volume industries for over 25 years. Explore more below about the key capabilities and differentiators of KX software.

    01

    Worlds fastest
    time series
    database

    TIME-SERIES

    The worlds fastest time series database. Kdb+ is optimized for ingesting, analyzing, and storing massive amounts of structured data. The combination of the columnar database design and in-memory capabilities means KX software offers greater speed and efficiency than typical relational databases.

    02

    Graceful
    streaming

    GRACEFUL STREAMING

    Designed to be able to gracefully handle massive real-time streams of data, the software allows users to easily configure and create event driven architectures and workflows.

     

    03

    Powerful

    POWERFUL

    Handles millions of events and measurements per second and petabytes of historical data, (all with nanosecond resolution), more efficiently and cost-effectively than any alternative technologies.

    04

    Native support
    for time-series

    NATIVE SUPPORT FOR TIME-SERIES

    Native support for time-series operations vastly improves both the speed and performance of queries, aggregation and analysis of structured data.

    05

    Columnar
    database

    COLUMNAR DATABASE

    Much of the performance and efficiency of KX Software derives from the columnar database structure. This structure means only the data that is required by the user is retrieved from the database in the first place.

    06

    Functional
    programming
    language

    FUNCTIONAL PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE

    KX software’s programming language q is a functional Language – ideal for working with Big Data as it encourages viewing functions as transformations to data and allows developers to stay focused on solving the problem at hand.

    07

    Filtration and
    aggregation

    FILTRATION AND AGGREGATION

    Easy and flexible filtration and aggregation of massive amounts of data using qSQL, an SQL-like query syntax. Powerful window-join functionality also enables users to contextualise easily between data tables over entirely customisable windows.

    08

    Green Technology

    GREEN TECHNOLOGY

    At KX, our software has been designed from the start to be extremely efficient. KX software is not only faster, it uses significantly less power compared to queries run on a fixed number of compute instances (as seen in other softwares).
