Back in 2009, we decided to challenge the status quo of databases in hedge funds. Why are we building these Rube Goldberg Machines to access historical data and answer simple questions? Why is every hedge fund building a suboptimal solution to the same problem? We wanted to build the fastest database in the world without any restriction to its capacity. Users shouldn’t wait on the software and be able to query all their data in an instant! We also knew that the technology would have huge applications outside of financial markets, with the coming of industrial IoT and autonomous vehicles.
Remaining extremely focused and pragmatic– and not trying to re-invent a sub-par relational database – we infused innovation with an unimaginable count of manhours to create a database management system, QuasarDB, focused on time series and designed to handle any workload as fast as the current technology permits.
QuasarDB is a high-performance, distributed, time series database. QuasarDB can reliably ingest millions of points per second and aggregate billions of lines per second, making sure it can handle even the most extreme time series use cases. Scalability is transparent, whether it’s for very large and dense time series or millions of smaller ones.Available Positions
