SunGard Trading Systems/Global Markets is reporting a new benchmarking performance watermark for its TreasuryTrader system, running on Sun Microsystems servers.
In performance testing, the latest version of TreasuryTrader, running on the UltraSparc III based Sun Fire 6800 midframe server and Sun StorEdge T3 disk array, achieved 71,387 trades per hour for approximately 200 users. This is more than double the greatest number of expected trades from the world's largest banks, say the companies.
Testing for an earlier version of TreasuryTrader performed four years ago on another Unix system supported only 31 users and 13,500 trades per hour.
TreasuryTrader is a high-volume treasury trading solution that provides online, real-time trading and processing for financial exchanges, money markets, interest rate derivatives and fixed income.
