After a formal competitive evaluation, Chimera Securities chose OneTick Database for its ability to integrate real-time streaming and historical tick data with intuitive business logic and analytics as well as its low total cost of ownership. OneTick Database's ability to handle all tick data needs including order book analytics, regulatory compliance and transaction cost analysis also made it the ideal solution for the firm.
OneTick Database collects and processes millions of ticks per second on a single CPU and archives billions of ticks per day globally, providing uniform access to all tick data, up to and including the latest tick.

In addition, OneTick Database easily tackles rapidly rising data volumes and real-time data rates, while servicing multiple concurrent user queries on llarge datasets that span decades. With no limitations on data volumes, peak rates or length of stored history, OneTick empowers users to access one integrated database for all quantitative research needs - eliminating the need to license multiple disparate solutions and lowering the total cost of ownership.
