    What you need for your use case is a column-oriented store. I recommend explore bcolz or apache arrow for a column file-based systems. These are very fast, support memory mapping, uses compression and SSD speed (and even CPU architecture, in case of arrow) optimally almost out of the box, and has good interfaces to Numpy and Pandas (in case you are using Python for final data consumption and analysis). The columnar structure makes it easy to add or delete a column easily (or even dynamically). If you need a more scalable (albeit at the cost of speed) solution, you can devise a schema over a regular columnar db or an nosql db - see arctic from Man group for an example.
