“Whether for real-time analytics, reporting, pub/sub or adhoc testing, QuestDB has repeatedly established itself as a go-to Swiss Army Knife data management tool and is the database of choice for the Aquis Exchange next-generation service architecture.”

Aquis Exchange has gone live with QuestDB’s open source time series database to monitor its institutional exchange in real time.

This partnership enables the Pan-European operator of equity trading exchanges to improve its monitoring and real-time decision-making capabilities with open source software at the core of their infrastructure while reducing costs.

“Go-to Swiss Army Knife data management tool”

Viet Lee, CTO at Aquis Exchange: “Institutional-grade exchanges need to be fast, reliable and fair – processing in nano/microseconds, being highly available, and delivering data consistently. QuestDB performs to this high standard while integrating seamlessly with our structured data, development capabilities, and microservices architecture. Whether for real-time analytics, reporting, pub/sub or adhoc testing, QuestDB has repeatedly established itself as a go-to Swiss Army Knife data management tool and is the database of choice for the Aquis Exchange next-generation service architecture.”

Nicolas Hourcard, CEO at QuestDB: “This is a great example of QuestDB powering financial markets infrastructure through a database focused on performance. QuestDB allows high throughput ingestion coupled with sub millisecond queries that can be executed in SQL. Aquis Exchange is a market leading Pan-European equity exchange with the fastest technology and QuestDB is an essential component to process infrastructure metrics and market data at scale.”
