monetdb_fdw: PostgreSQL meets column store. Finally.

As you may know, FDW is one of the advantages of PostgreSQL. There are variety of FDWs to federate different data sources (including PostgreSQL itself) with PostgreSQL.

And also, you may know everyone in the industry is talking about BigData and analytics everyday. We know that most of them must be a buzz though. :p

Yesterday, I released a brand-new FDW, monetdb_fdw, which allows you to federate MonetDB, an open source column-oriented RDBMS, with PostgreSQL.

MonetDB was originally developed at University of Amsterdam, and it has been well developed and maintained as open source.
