For large data sets, kdb+ is very tough to beat, however it is not user friendly to pick up and use on the go.

Pros

Cons

kdb+

  • It is sometimes painful to accept the fact that KDB+ is not fully multithreaded.
  • The ability to write shorter code for a complex logic is really good. But it makes it really cryptic. Cryptic codes are very difficult to maintain and extend.
  • For some small institutions license cost is little high.

Return on Investment

kdb+

  • It perfectly solves most of our real time tick data needs.
  • Finding good kdb resources is slightly difficult. Also new people trying to learn kdb experience a relatively longer learning curve.

VectorWise

  • We had to move out of VectorWise after using the database for 2 years. Hence no positive impacts.
