Faster, robuster and feature richer: MonetDB in 2020 and beyond

The MonetDB team has completed her major development strands for 2020. The MonetDB Oct2020 feature release includes significant improvements in performance under frequent bulk-update transactions, highly requested features such as point-in-time database backup and more analytics features, and many more extensions for the convenience of application developers.

“In 2020 we have conducted some major renovations of the MonetDB internals to improve speed, functionality and stability to strengthen its role in the enterprise market,” said Niels Nes, CTO and co-founder of MonetDB Solutions. “The Oct2020 release is the last functional release for this year. It lays the basis for some cool items to be expected next year.”

MonetDB, an innovative data management system known for its high-performance and robustness, benefits from over 25 years of open source development from a global developer community and has become the preferred open-source analytical database of organisations of all sizes addressing their big data and data analytics challenges.
