High-Performance Database Solution

Test tomorrow’s strategy while executing today’s

With the High-Performance Database Solution from Dell and Kove, your business can simultaneously execute algorithmic trades while back-testing that same data, without performance interruption.

That means you can put tested models into action much sooner to optimize revenues and make better trades, reducing your trades’ credit, market and operations risks.

Our High-Performance Database Solution is purpose-built for securities firms, offering these benefits:
  • Resides on a Kove® XPD™ L2 storage disk and controller co-located on your Dell PowerEdge server for faster caching
  • Runs against your high-performance kdb+ database and accelerates processing by deploying virtually all the DRAM you will ever need
  • Accelerates faster than flash, spinning-disk or solid-state technologies; in fact, our stack achieved the highest performance ranking ever in 14 out of 17 Securities Technology Analysis Center (STAC)-M3 benchmarks
  • Performs at 12x the speed of the next-best Market Snapshot benchmark
  • Excels at 5x the speed of the next-best Theoretical P&L benchmark
  • Achieves 4x the speed of the next-best VWAB-Day and Week Hi Bid benchmarks
  • Offers predictable low latency along with high concurrency for linear scaling
Contact a Dell financial markets expert to learn how our High-Performance Database Solution can enable you to run analytics in just a few minutes per quant.
