New York, NY, July 26, 2018 --( AquaQ Analytics Limited (, the Belfast-based software and consultancy services company to clients operating within the Finance and Utilities sectors, is pleased to announce the release of q-REST v1.0 – a RESTful web interface for the kdb+ database.

This open source package has been designed as a convenient way for web clients to make requests to a kdb+ database instance using the JSON format. The package can be easily integrated with Swagger UI, Docker and standard authentication methods such as SSO, allowing users to easily integrate the package into their current kdb+ set up. Database security can also be improved by only permitting certain requests to be run against a kdb+ instance and by setting additional permissions based on the username of the requester. Instructions for installation and deployment of the service can be found along with a blog post explaining the Interface here:

q-REST is the latest addition to the AquaQ set of software products that already includes a number of feed handlers to connect kdb+ to market data providers, the open source AquaQ TorQ framework for kdb+ and an online video-based kdb+ training portal with different courses aimed at developers & analysts.
