McObject Announces General Release of eXtremeDB Financial Edition

In-Memory Database Brings Low-Latency Performance and Proven Reliability to Financial Services

ISSAQUAH, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 -- McObject®, provider of innovative database solutions for real-time applications, announced today the immediate availability of eXtremeDB Financial Edition, its high-performance, fault-tolerant in-memory database system (IMDS) designed for time-critical capital markets systems such as algorithmic trading, risk management, order matching and quantitative analysis.

McObject also announced that TradeStation Technologies, a Monex Group company (TSE: 8698) and an affiliate of the award-winning broker-dealer and futures commission merchant, TradeStation Securities, plans to adopt eXtremeDB Financial Edition for data management in its next-generation order-execution system. "Our technology differentiates us. Among other awards, Barron's magazine recognized TradeStation in 2012 for the best trading experience and technology among online brokerages," said T. Keith Black, TradeStation Technologies' Chief Technology Officer. "eXtremeDB Financial Edition demonstrated performance that is an order of magnitude better than other DBMSs we evaluated, and we are excited about the end-user benefits it will help to deliver as part of our live trading technology."

The eXtremeDB product family has a proven track record in embedded systems where it is trusted in millions of deployments, in fields ranging from aerospace to telecommunications, defense and industrial control. eXtremeDB Financial Edition builds on that solid foundation, bringing flexible development tools, high reliability and the lowest possible latency for an IMDS to financial services. The product includes an array of new features built for trading organizations and others developing technology for capital markets.

These features include:

  • Support for columnar data storage to improve efficiency in handling time-series data such as trades and quotes. With eXtremeDB Financial Edition, system designers can combine a columnar layout with traditional rows in a single database design, to optimize run-time efficiency.

  • A rich library of more than 80 vector-based statistical functions that cut latency in time-series data management and maximize efficiency of L1/L2 cache use.

  • Improved clustering technology that boosts distributed database performance and scalability.

  • A new GUI database performance monitor, to observe the effect of changes to the database or application on transaction throughput, memory consumption and other key factors when fine-tuning to reduce latency.

eXtremeDB Financial Edition delivers speed without sacrificing reliability. Database transactions fully support the ACID (atomicity, consistency, isolation, durability) properties, while transaction logging provides recoverability. Optional Clustering and High Availability sub-systems distribute the database to multiple hardware nodes, to guarantee uninterrupted processing in the event of failure on one node. A fast, native C/C++ API is type-safe, greatly reducing the potential for run-time bugs. SQL/ODBC, JDBC and native Java and C# APIs are provided as well -- development with eXtremeDB Financial Edition is faster, because there are no proprietary languages to learn. All of these features are available at no additional cost.

eXtremeDB Financial Edition is available now through McObject. For pricing, please contact [email protected] or call 1 (425) 888-8505.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
