GemStone Systems announced the availability of a benchmarking report
with Platform Computing. Focused on event driven grid calculations in a
risk scenario, the benchmark results demonstrate a 98 percent
improvement in efficiency and 61 times increase in net benefit in
end-to-end client response time, offering firms the opportunity to
develop and deploy new grid models while reducing both time-to-market
and operational expense.
Executed on Intel Xeon 64-bit dual-core processor based hardware, the benchmark report highlights the benefits to be gained by combining Platform Symphony’s compute grid with the GemFire Enterprise Data Fabric data grid in a Grid computing environment. By leveraging the power of the underlying Intel hardware platform, the convergence of the Platform compute grid and GemStone data grid was shown to deliver a new event-driven design paradigm for calculating grid computations.
The event-driven model triggers grid calculations upon data updates and hence the load on the compute grid is smoothed out, as opposed to the scenario of running all computations based on a client-request.
“The name of the game in grid is efficiency and bringing customers increased performance to positively affect the bottom line,” said Simon Lonsdale, director of strategic alliances at Platform. “The combination of Symphony, GemFire and Intel platforms gives end users further performance benefits on the grid, providing additional value to customers who have employed Symphony to grow along with their business.”
The joint use of the compute and data grids offers additional unprecedented design patterns such as:
