ISSAQUAH, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- McObject® announced today that a new report from the Securities Technology Analysis Center (STAC®) documents that the company's eXtremeDB® Financial Edition database system achieved the lowest mean response times ever reported for 15 of 17 STAC-M3 benchmarks. The fully audited benchmark tests evaluated time-series data management (tick database) solutions involving complex queries that were designed by trading firms on the STAC Benchmark Council to reflect real-world capital markets computing demands.
Trading in today's financial markets is increasingly a "race to zero" in which improved speed drives profits, and accelerating collection and analysis of trade and quote (TAQ) time-series data provides the greatest competitive edge. Obstacles include surging data volumes and securities prices that can change millions of times per second. Success hinges on low-latency approaches that enable rapid retrieval, storage, and analysis of massive quantities of data, making it possible to exploit fleeting market opportunities, monitor risk, and satisfy regulatory demands.
McObject together with Kove, Dell, and Mellanox bring years of industry experience to the tasks of capturing and analyzing market data, resulting in the best performance ever demonstrated in most of the STAC-M3 Benchmarks. McObject's STAC-M3 implementation leveraged key eXtremeDB Financial Edition features, including column-oriented data storage and a rich library of vector-based statistical functions, to store, retrieve and analyze a year's worth of simulated tick data while measuring the key metric of query response latency.
McObject deployed the DBMS on a Dell R910 PowerEdge server with 40 Intel E7 cores and 512GB RAM, running CentOS 6.2 Linux. For high performance storage, the tests used the Kove® XPD L2 memory-disk SSD storage, mesh-connected via Mellanox ConnectX®-2 InfiniBand adapters through a Mellanox InfiniScale® IV QDR InfiniBand Switch to the Dell server. This off-the-shelf solution, capable of delivering the fastest market data analysis, is available today and supported through the vendors named above. The tests were performed by STAC at R-HPC.
The McObject, Kove, Dell and Mellanox products' track records and record-setting performance in the STAC-M3 Benchmark recommends their use together in financial systems including:
- Trade and Order Execution Platforms
- Algorithmic Back Testing of Data
- Real-Time Risk Analytics and Reporting
- Correlation of Trading and Exposure Across Multiple Asset Classes/Trading Venues
- Real-Time Ingestion and Analytics of High Volume Market/OPRA Data
"eXtremeDB Financial Edition has emerged as a key tool to purge latency from data-intensive, real-time financial applications. These STAC-M3 Benchmarks leverage the database system's key features including its streamlined design, support for both column- and row-based data storage, and rich library of vector-based statistical functions to deliver the highest speed in analyzing time series data. Together with our partners, McObject is confident recommending this joint solution with eXtremeDB Financial Edition to organizations seeking more profitable trading in today's highly automated capital markets," said Steve Graves, McObject CEO.
"This collaboration yet again extends Kove's leadership in high performance storage, providing real world solutions based on the Kove® XPD L2 memory-disk SSD storage for those who need the absolute fastest storage available," said Kove CEO John Overton.
"Faster access to and analysis of information means faster time to answers. This leads to better, and more real-time, business decisions," said Bob Barris, VP of global sales, banking and securities at Dell. "These STAC-M3 Benchmark results prove that with the right technology solution, institutions can be assured they can obtain affordable technology for analyzing market data, despite unprecedented volumes."
"IT departments in financial capital markets are facing huge growth in the volume of market data, while they are also under pressure to improve trade execution times," said Asaf Wachtel, director of financial services business development at Mellanox Technologies. "These STAC-M3 benchmarks are a testament to the bandwidth and latency performance benefits our InfiniBand interconnect solutions provide to the financial services industry, enabling them with faster time to analysis and trade execution."

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
