Asset Control, the world's leading provider of Centralized Data Management (CDM) solutions to the financial industry, today announced its support for Sun's award-winning Solaris 10 Operating System (OS) running on Sun's Sun Fire x64 (x86, 64-bit) servers powered by AMD Opteron processors.
The Solaris 10 OS offers improved security, stability and performance, all at a lower total cost of ownership in which to run the Asset Control product suite for standardized reference data and market data management solutions across the enterprise.
"As a leading operating system, the Solaris 10 OS provides the reliability of an enterprise platform at commodity pricing," said David Hirschfeld, Senior Vice President of Operations at Asset Control. "A number of financial institutions have expressed an interest in a move to cost-effective computing platforms. Our goal for extending to the x64 platform is to offer a lower total cost of ownership and the widest range of platform options available to support the entire life cycle of data management."
Anders Harrysson, President, Sun Microsystems Central and North Europe said:
"The combination of Asset Control's product suite and the Solaris 10 OS is all about performance, value and choice. This is particularly important for institutions looking at a dependable and extensible investment data management platform that leverages the increased performance of the Sun Fire x64 servers, in addition to compatibility with more than 650 x86/x64 platforms that run the Solaris 10 OS, including those from Dell, HP and IBM."
