A Fortune 50 company tried traditional SQL databases, then Hadoop, to manage financial updates company-wide. They finally found a successful solution by augmenting Hadoop with MemSQL. Many companies today are straining to meet the needs for faster ad hoc analytics, dashboards, reporting, and support for modern applications that depend on fast access to the latest data – in particular, financial data.

Consider the problem of predicting the evolution of stock prices over time, as illustrated in Figure 1. This is, in general, impossible to do perfectly. One could imagine, however, that the prices are a reflection of some underlying state of the market that evolves in a fashion that is not directly observable. Clearly, there is […]

When a colleague of mine was running some experiments, he noticed LockSupport.parkNanos() would either return almost immediately or in roughly 50 microseconds steps. In other words: Calling LockSupport.parkNanos(10000) would not return after 10 microseconds, but roughly after 50 μs. LockSupport.parkNanos(55000)…
