I've developed an ActiveRecord adapter for MonetDB, and I would be
glad if you people give it a try and give me some feedback and
possibly join the project as developers/maintainers.
MonetDB is an open source high-performance database management system
developed at the National Research Institute for Mathematics and
Computer Science (CWI; Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica) in the
Netherlands. It was designed to provide high performance on complex
queries against large databases, e.g. combining tables with hundreds
of columns and multi-million rows. As such, MonetDB can be used in
application areas that because of performance issues are no-go areas
for using traditional database technology in a real-time manner.
MonetDB has been successfully applied in high-performance applications
for data mining, OLAP, GIS, XML Query, text and multimedia retrieval.
