An old friend of mine is working in the database research group in Amsterdam, they have developed monetdb: From https://www.monetdb.org/Home The column-store pioneer The column store technology of MonetDB has found its way into the product offerings of all major commercial database vendors. Its pioneering role has been internationally recognized with the prestigious ACM SIGMOD Edgar F. Codd Innovation Award and ACM SIGMOD Systems Award. The market for applications empowered by these techniques provide ample space for further innovation, e.g. as demonstrated by our ongoing projects. At the same time, the landscape for major innovations remain wide open. A peek preview is given in the award winning paper titled: The Researcher's Guide to the Data Deluge: Querying a Scientific Database in Just a Few Seconds. I just found that there everything is now on Git hub, with clients written for: Ruby, Perl, PHP, Python and Java. https://www.monetdb.org/blog/monetdb-on-github I just took a short look into the Ruby client code, I have not used Monetdb yet, but is there anybody interested in trying to make a D client? I think it might give an interesting storage concept especially for people using D for Big Data. Any comment? Regards mt.
