Wondering about best approaches to storing/retrieving options price data for backtesting purposes? Anything SQL-based seems unwieldy (ie, very slow) given the amount of data, wondering if it may be necessary to go to a flat file or TSDB solution or if there's a better approach.

I use memory mapped files to store options data for my simulations. Another fast tool is kdb (commercial version is extremely expensive, but 32 bit version could be used for free)
