Kx and Weka Improve Performance for KDB+ HDB in AWS

Kdb+ is a high-performance technology, and users have been slow to adopt the Cloud because it was thought that kdb+ could not provide a level of performance, storage and memory access commensurate with dedicated or custom hardware implementations. Kx and WekaIO have extensively assessed the functional performance constraints of kdb+ both in EC2 and in the supporting storage layers. If you are currently migrating, or considering migrating an historical kdb+ database (HDB) to the Cloud, you will want to read this case study which assesses the WekaIO Matrix storage solution available within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud.
