Today, AWS announces the general availability of Amazon FinSpace with Managed kdb Insights, a new capability of Amazon FinSpace that makes it simple to configure, run, and manage kdb Insights on AWS. KX Systems’ kdb Insights, a high-performance analytics engine, is optimized for analyzing real-time and multi-petabyte historical capital markets data. Kdb Insights is widely used in capital markets to power business-critical workloads such as option pricing, transaction cost analysis, and back-testing.

Customers can easily move existing kdb applications to Amazon FinSpace and get the benefits of cloud, while eliminating the complex and costly work of self-managing kdb applications. The automatic scaling and high availability across multiple AWS Availability Zones ensure that kdb applications keep up with volatile market conditions, and meet requests for new analytics capabilities from business teams in hours instead of months and are available during the most critical business hours.
