kdb+?



Sure, but it's far more expensive and not as generally usable as the mysql-flavored MemSQL for common data warehouse scenarios. Performance will be similar but there are differences in functionality like kdb's asof joins that can't really be compared.

kdb+ is much better for numeric/financial analysis apps, especially when used with the integrated query language and interpreter environment.


The statement was that you will not get better performance than memsql, not about which is cheaper.


As written: "Performance will be similar but there are differences in functionality like kdb's asof joins that can't really be compared."

Also the original post only mentioned MemSQL, Citus, and CockroachDB. With those, MemSQL is the fastest.
