The MonetDB Database System =========================== The MonetDB database is developed by the CWI database research group (see http://www.monetdb.org/). Via the MonetDB project we have brought the MonetDB system in open source, where it is accessible at http://www.monetdb.org/Downloads/ The MonetDB database system is a high-performance database kernel for query-intensive applications. The MonetDB kernel works together with an SQL frontend that is in a separate CVS module. If you got a source distribution, please compile and install MonetDB first, following the instructions in the file 'HowToStart.rst' (for Unix) or 'buildtools/doc/windowsbuild.rst' (for Windows).
