  • It is really fast if chosen for the right problem.
  • Large logic can be shrunk into a tiny snippet.
  • It provides a column oriented database, where each column in a table is a vector. Thus you can perform very fast analytics using its vector processing power.
  • 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.

  • Time series analysis. The built-in vector operations are extremely fast. Also with the q language you can code up any customized analytical ideas quickly.
  • The database are all file based, very easy to maintain.
  • Very solid and fast interface to websocket, so you can interface with javascript easily.
  • The learning curve is a little steep in the beginning.
