Join us to learn about Kx - world’s fastest time-series DB

Kx is a division of First Derivatives, a global technology provider in time series data management with 25 years of experience working with some of the world’s largest manufacturing, energy and finance institutions. The kdb+ database is the world's fastest time-series database for ingesting, storing & processing massive volumes of streaming and historical data. Utilizing the Kx for Sensors framework with the kdb+ database, users can ingest many millions of readings per second, perform thousands of queries and analytics per second on this streaming data combined with the huge volumes of historical data. Our performant technology is highly scalable enabling competitive total cost of ownership for institutions for all use case sizes. In the semiconductor manufacturing case, sensor or trace data from tools in the factory combined with metrology and yield/test data are used to enable advanced monitoring and control applications to improve tool performance, better manage process control, and increase product yield. 


 Press Releases

  • Kx announces that it has been selected as an Innovation Partner to Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, following the success of its existing relationship with the leading F1 team. The extended partnership reflects the desire of Aston Martin Red Bull Racing to apply Kx technology’s unmatched performance for ingesting and analyzing sensor data to a wider range of applications, based on the competitive advantage their use of Kx has delivered to date.

    As an Innovation Partner, Kx’s logo will be prominently displayed on the latest version of the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing F1 car, which is being formally unveiled today (13 February 2019). Kx joins other leading technology companies, including IBM, AT&T, Siemens and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, as Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Innovation Partners.  The unique attributes of Kx technology also open up opportunities to work across their lines of business, extending the engineering excellence within F1 to technical and commercial solutions for leading-edge clients across a range of industries.

    In its extended role, Kx will be deployed to enhance areas such as aerodynamic testing and high-performance analytics across the organization. This results from the success generated by Kx’s initial deployment to analyze sensor data for wind tunnel analysis, where performance was improved by orders of magnitude.

    Matt Cadieux, CIO of Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, commented: “The analysis of sensor data, particularly time-series, is critical to the success of a modern F1 team. Working with Kx we have seen how its lightning-fast performance provides us with an edge and we look forward to extending it across our operations.”

    Christian Horner, Team Principal of Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, commented: “I am very pleased to be extending our relationship with Kx today. Within Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, everything is about speed.  Kx technology enables us to ensure that our decisions are incredibly precise, data-driven and fast, here in the factory or on the circuit.”

    Brian Conlon, CEO of Kx, commented: “We are delighted to be extending our relationship with Aston Martin Red Bull Racing. We are both driven by precision and performance and we share many similar philosophies around the importance of continual innovation. We look forward to deepening our relationship across a spectrum of opportunities where our combined efforts have the potential to deliver significant benefits for both our companies.”

  • FD (AIM: FDP.L, ESM: FDP.I) announces that it has signed a material OEM deal with BISTel, a leading provider of smart manufacturing solutions headquartered in South Korea, for the use of Kx for Sensors and kdb+ in its product line. Under the agreement, many of BISTel’s products will have “Kx Inside” within the next two years, with the first deployments expected in the first half of 2019.

    Kx will be used as the technology to store and analyse massive volumes of sensor data within BISTel’s real-time, adaptive intelligence applications for smart manufacturing. The OEM agreement was reached after a number of proofs of concept, including direct comparisons with potential competing solutions, during which Kx technology proved to be an order of magnitude faster than these alternative products.

    BISTel is a leading supplier of adaptive intelligence (AI) applications that combine embedded human knowledge and advanced engineering automation solutions to help factories to better detect, analyse, predict, and prescribe solutions to complex manufacturing problems in real-time.

    This OEM agreement is also expected to facilitate direct discussions with a number of the world’s leading manufacturers who have expressed interest in the use of Kx for Sensors and kdb+ to augment their current infrastructure.

    WK Choi, Founder and CEO of BISTel, commented: “We are delighted to partner with FD’s talented team. Its highly innovative Kx technology will integrate seamlessly with our solutions to help factories to make quicker, better and more informed decisions on the factory floor, which in turn will lead to increased engineering effectiveness, improvements in quality and greatly reduced costs.”

    Brian Conlon, Chief Executive Officer of FD, commented: “This is a further important contract win for Kx in the Industrial Internet of Things, reflecting our growing presence in this market and our technology lead. Kx provides higher performance, greater scalability and lower total cost of ownership than competing solutions and we are engaged in multiple conversations across manufacturing, and other industries, with potential customers attracted by these benefits.”

  • Kx is set to power the next generation of smart cities, enabling operational intelligence to be embedded into vital infrastructure such as road, water, phone and power systems. Kx will enable the Urban Institute’s smart data analytics platform, UrbanPulse, to process and analyze rapidly-growing data volumes in real-time to deliver infrastructure benefits that are critical to the health of modern cities and their residents.

    With Smart City spending expected to reach $158 billion by 2022 (IDC), the Urban Institute provides technology that is instrumental in delivering the smart cities of the future. The aim is to deliver benefits such as better traffic management through the use of radar and WiFi mesh systems to control traffic light settings. However, to fulfil this vision, councils need a way to access, analyze and act on the data while maintaining necessary attributes such as security and privacy. The UrbanPulse data platform currently addresses these challenges for a variety of clients, ranging from government partners to energy providers across Europe, Australia and the United States.

    As the digital infrastructure within cities grows, so do data volumes and complexity, rendering existing technologies increasingly unable to cope with the challenge of turning data into actions. Using Kx technology, the Urban Institute is able to deliver a next-generation solution to its clients, optimized to handle massive quantities of sensor data coming from multiple sources. Kx technology is perfectly suited to address the smart city data challenges, enabling city officials to engage with and explore their data. Optimized for scalability and adaptability, the Kx technology stack enables access to data and actionable intelligence in real time.

    With the enhanced speed and power that Kx brings, UrbanPulse has already been deployed in major Australian cities such as Darwin and Brisbane with a plan of four more cities by mid-2019.

    Simon Kaplan, CEO of [ui!] The Urban Institute, commented: “With over 70% of the world’s population now living in urban areas, smart, connected cities are needed now more than ever. Kx technology has allowed us to significantly enhance our sensor analytics capabilities and deliver actionable insights to the cities we are working with.”

    Brian Conlon, CEO of Kx, commented: “As Smart Cities evolve, the data volumes they generate will continue to skyrocket. Powered by Kx, the Urban Institute is able to scale its innovative UrbanPulse platform to meet this challenge and deliver real-world benefits. This exciting use of Kx technology further demonstrates the value it provides in real-time sensor analytics.”
