Who uses time series or column-oriented databases and why?

Like any database technology platform, time series databases have found specialized applications in several industries, including telecommunications, utility, finance, and military.

For example, cell carriers use time series databases to monitor peak mobile phone usage. Similarly, utilities use them to study optimal tariff structure to shape on-peak or off-peak electricity usage.

See wikipedia for more on time series and column-oriented databases.
