This white paper provides an overview of virtualisation technologies and the application of Platform's Symphony Grid architecture in the financial services industry.
Resource virtualisation enables large-scale distributed computing where geographically dispersed computers can be shared dynamically between many applications to behave as a single shared computer. With this technology, companies can balance the supply and demand of computing resources by providing users with a single, transparent, aggregated source of computing power. Ultimately, it provides the ability to lower the total cost of computing by providing on-demand, reliable and transparent access to available computer resources.
The paper covers the technical aspects of Symphony architecture, Grid-enabling and managing applications with Platform Symphony. The target audience are IT managers and application architects in the financial services market.» Download the document now 723.6 kb (PDF File)
