Palo Alto, CA (2 Apr 2014) – Kx Systems, a 20-year leader in high-performance database and time-series analytics, is announcing its new website, kxcommunity.com, to support its growing user base.

Kx is also announcing that the 32-bit version of its database kdb+, and its expressive query language q, will now be free for commercial use.

Widely adopted in the financial services sector, and as an embedded OEM database in software used across industrial sectors, thousands of developers have learned how to program using Kx technology.

The new site will be a platform to bring together the growing community of kdb+ developers, as well as serve as a starting point for new types of developers looking for a highly scalable database technology with a built-in query language.

“The entrepreneurial spirit is shaping so much of the dialogue about technology today,” said Janet Lustgarten, CEO Kx Systems. “We want to participate in this time of innovation, and make a version of our product that has been proven by industry and academia available for use by new entrepreneurs.”
