New York’s Recent MDM and Data Governance Summit Was a Blowout Event

Poonnen presented to an audience of over a hundred technology and business professionals. (more…)

Data Prefetching and Caching

Treating Big Data Performance Woes with the Data Replication Cure Blog Series – Part 3

OK, so in our last two discussions, we looked at the memory bottleneck and how even in high performance environments, there are still going to be situations in which streaming the data to where it needs to be will introduce latencies that throttle processing speed.  And I also noted that we needed some additional strategies to address that potential bottleneck, so here goes: (more…)

Low Latency Reduction – The Latest Techniques, and Where We’re Heading

The current level of interest in latency reduction is manifesting in three principal ways:  vendors are embracing new techniques;  the requirement for latency reduction implies the requirement for latency monitoring and benchmarking; and lastly, the latency spotlight is also falling on the fundamental principles of network architecture and switch design.   Bob Van Valzah, 29West director of product marketing, will join the TS-Associates sponsored panel of experts.

Session 2, 11 – 11:50

Ensuring Real-World  Low-Latency – Performance When it Counts

The key to differentiating low-latency that will impact your bottom line is to ensure that your applications can handle real-world situations such as volume spikes and massive price movements with no degradation in performance.  The most intense trading is the time when you make (or lose) your real money and you need your latency to be at the lowest or risk getting run out of the market.  New techniques for better understanding the capacity and performance characteristics of these transaction platforms will increasingly drive competitive advantage.  Through this lens, winners will design, architect and implement the next generation capabilities for dominance.   This session will explore the impact of low-latency and its measurement as well as ensuring  performance when it counts.

Stop by Session 2 and say hello to Bob.
