Having an interest in Times Series within Capital Markets, would like to understand the Time Series offering of the various vendors. To start the discussion we could contrast and compare the basic architecture approaches (Column -vs- Row) orientation, language expressiveness (SQL -vs- Proprietary) and the ever popular memory model (in memory, disk based, hybrid).
I will (uncharacteristically) withhold my own thoughts and opinions, at least for the time being, as I'd like to hear what everyone else has to say.
So: what database(s) provide the best time series functionality and why?
