McObject and IBM Set New Records for Speed and Stability for Capital Markets

A new report from the Securities Technology Analysis Center (STAC) demonstrates the performance value of McObject’s SQL-based eXtremeDB Financial Edition database management system (DBMS), running on IBM POWER8 S824L Linux server, executing a time-series data analytics workload. The STAC-M3 Benchmark suite is the industry standard for testing solutions that enable high-speed analytics on time series data such as tick-by-tick market data. 

The combination of eXtremeDB and the POWER8 system achieved new records in a set of 17 STAC-M3 tests, including the best-ever results for jitter. Adding together the mean response times for these 17 tests,eXtremeDB on POWER8 took 44% less time than the nearest competitive solution while using just one-third the number of cores. This solution provides a significant cost/performance benefit to clients in the financial industry.
