FRTB and Oracle High-End systems

FRTB and Oracle High End Systems

If you are wondering what might be the relation between the next coming finance regulation laws, like FRTB that will probably impact the major financial actors of the market, and our Oracle large footprint systems, check this article explaining how to address this challenge with In-Memory computing, and have a look at this video where QuarteFS is describing the scale-in scale-out dilemna. 

In resume, for the finance institutions, the large amount of data, due to the new regulations laws that are coming, that will need to be processed (multidimensional analytics) during the same day, will have a reasonable solution, like ActivePivot (a Java Application) from QuartetFS, when implemented on high ends systems. A standard distributed implementation on standard interconnected x86 systems will work, but won't provide just in time a risk evaluation, before taking a business decision.

SPARC or INTEL ?

As the INTEL CPUS are becoming more and more powerfull, like more cores, SMT, embedded memory controller (NEHALEM), 3 DDR3 Channels per socket, scalability up to 2 sockets (and next step will be above 4 sockets), some people may wonder if it make sense to continue to run business applications on SPARC Architecture.[Read More]
