I am new to databases so pardon the noobness. I'm presently on a co-op and would really appreciate some guidance as I am very much learning on the job. In a nutshell, this is what I have to do.
I would like to capture data from a server and write to a database, and then use the captured data for some data analysis. Finally, I have to present the data (do some GUI work) and write back the analysed data from database to server via several gateways.
I will be using KDB+ and have started learning up Q. Any guidance is much appreciated.

Jack, if you will use KDB+ for the DB and Q for the programming, I'm wondering why you're posting this question in a Microsoft SQL Server forum?
I don't know if you're completely decided on the technology you'll use, but the SQL platform has some great tools to do just what you're outlining, and you could obtain much (or probably all) the software you would need to implement a solution for your co-op experience (if your sponsor doesn't already have Microsoft database technologies for you to use). The skills you learn with Microsoft SQL and Visual Studio would be quite marketable after your co-op experience.
SQL Express is the free edition of SQL Server. Great for starter and small projects:
