Gateway Design Principles

A kdb+ production architecture is usually a multi-process environment where a gateway is a key component to achieve scalability, parallelism and redundancy. Aidan O’Gorman will discuss common principles and design patterns in gateway buildout (see slide deck for references to code.kx).

Grafana is a visualisation tool with pre-built interfaces to multiple data sources. Last year we published a kdb+ interface using the SimpleJSON connection type. We’ve recently published a more advanced open source interface (which can be found in the Grafana store) using the Websocket interface. Callum Ormerod will discuss and give examples of our work on this.

kdb+ 4.0

Kx have released kdb+ 4.0. Jamie Grant will provide an overview and examples of the changes, including performance improvements via multi-threaded primitives, Data-At-Rest Encryption and a new code profiler. He’ll also talk about about Optane support, though that can’t be demoed as we don’t have any!

Gary Davies and Chris McCracken will give an overview of a recent PoC we have implemented using Docker, Kubernetes and Kafka to control and extend a kdb+ deployment.
