Financial Services organizations are under increasing pressure to deliver faster, better, and more cost effective infrastructure to accommodate growing compute needs. GemFire for Platform Symphony allows enterprise-class resiliency and scalability to dramatically improve performance of data-intensive applications, leading to improved computational speed and lower total cost of ownership.

Optimizing infrastructure is critical to effectively remove the technology bottlenecks that compromise efficiency. GemFire for Platform Symphony provides customers with rapid access to the data they need where they need it, along with the lowest available latency in a real-time workload management system. GemFire is an in-memory distributed data store that sits between an application and the underlying data source. It delivers a single, extensible enterprise-wide distributed data grid that enables any process to reliably share, store, replicate, transform, route, and synchronize large volumes of data across the grid in real-time. As part of this partnership, GemFire will be packaged with Platform Symphony.

"The combination of GemFire and Platform Symphony will offer customers a best-of-breed solution that will be able to scale to manage the exponential growth of enterprise data. By eliminating bottlenecks commonly associated with excess data in a grid, users will experience optimal performance with zero data loss," said Juan Menendez, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Alliances, GemStone Systems. "Data grids are a natural evolution of compute grids and by teaming with Platform Computing, we offer HPC customers the ability to leverage the power of data grids and therefore realize increases in speed when accessing their data."

The Financial Services Industry uses HPC management software to allow them to develop and run mission critical compute and data intense applications across a grid. Platform Symphony is a powerful solution to easily develop and deploy service-oriented HPC applications that can run five to ten times faster than other solutions currently available. This environment supports the demanding requirements of key business processes such as intraday risk calculations, pre-trade pricing and end-of-day value at risk calculations.

"Optimal use of grid relies on two critical factors: providing sufficient compute power-the compute grid-and a reliable, low-latency access to data-the data grid," said Jingwen Wang, Vice President, Products, Platform Computing "With GemFire for Platform Symphony, Platform and GemStone are able to meet these needs and allow customers to focus on growing their business."
