Solution using Lightfleet Datagram Protocol gives lowest tail latencies to date at highest throughput
33% faster in warm runs of baseline Greeks than the fastest non-Intel based solution
System sets 6 new response-time records (11 compared to other 2-socket systems)
4-socket system sets speed records for the baseline workload
Mean half-round trip latency through aggregation and layer 1 of just 0.06 microseconds.
The dates are set for the Fall 2015 STAC Summits in New York, Chicago and London. STAC Summits bring together industry leaders from top financial and technology firms to discuss ways to meet important engineering challenges in finance using innovative technologies.
This round of events focuses on several topics of interest today, including Deep Learning, the latest FPGA acceleration, Python performance, overcoming bottlenecks in big data tasks, programming for heterogeneous architectures, and much<more>
Some people learn their word-of-the-day from calendars and web sites; I am lucky enough to interact with financial services technologists who bring their own colorful language. As an example, the response I got from one when I asked about SQL-on-Hadoop: chimera.
