QuartetFS In-memory Analytical Suite on Oracle SPARC Servers
Is scale out really the most cost effective architecture for all solutions?
ActivePivot, the in-memory analytics suite from QuartetFS, is implemented by
customers such as HSBC, Société Générale, FNAC, Gefco and EBRD. On
June 12, during Technology Keynote of the 7th annual ActivePivot User
Group conference, Antoine Chambille, head of research & development
at Quartet FS, along with Eric Bezille chief technologist of Oracle
Systems France, discussed the benefits of scaling up ActivePivot
on large memory machines. They shared the near linear scalability and
great performance results of a joint benchmarking and tuning effort with
recently released ActivePivot 5.2 running on an Oracle M6 SPARC server
with 3072 CPU threads and 16 TB of memory. They also discussed the cost
effectiveness of such a solution.
Two sessions in JavaOne 2015 will also discuss the results of this project CON1855 and CON1917.
