Kx Offers kdb+ Time Series Database on Amazon Web Services Marketplace

Kx, a division of First Derivatives, is offering its kdb+ time series database on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace, an important step forward for kdb+ customers that plan to migrate existing applications to the cloud and develop new cloud-based applications.

Firms moving kdb+ development to AWS will be able to build and scale systems at faster rates and eliminate the need for internal IT infrastructure. Customers can either sign up online using their AWS credentials, or bring their own licenses and deploy directly on AWS.

Mark Sykes, Kx chief operating officer, says: “This cloud offering gives new users the ability to more easily and affordably get started with kdb+ and allows them to take advantage of kdb+’s scalability when needed. The ability to do burst processing, spin up a cloud server quickly, run a process and then exit, has been an important improvement for our users. Looking forward, we will add tools to support container strategies for self-contained kdb+ environments and flexible deployment.”
