Over at Cluster Monkey, Douglas Eadline writes that while column-oriented databases and time-series analysis have been serving the financial sector for years, many may not know about the new resources available from the kdb+ community.

You are invited to jump in and start looking down the column, instead of across the row, for real performance.
