QuestDB is an open-source time-series database for high throughput ingestion and fast SQL queries with operational simplicity. It supports schema-agnostic ingestion using the InfluxDB line protocol, PostgreSQL wire protocol, and a REST API for bulk imports and exports.

QuestDB is well suited for financial market data, application metrics, sensor data, real-time analytics, dashboards, and infrastructure monitoring.

QuestDB implements ANSI SQL with native time-series SQL extensions. These SQL extensions make it simple to correlate data from multiple sources using relational and time-series joins. We achieve high performance by adopting a column-oriented storage model, parallelized vector execution, SIMD instructions and low-latency techniques. The entire codebase is built from the ground up in Java and C++, with no dependencies and zero garbage collection.
