PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 11 -- HP today announced that the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) has selected HP servers to improve the efficiency of its online stock trading system, the NYSE Hybrid Market.
In a business environment where milliseconds matter, the NYSE Hybrid Market is relying on rack-based HP ProLiant DL585 servers, ProLiant BL685c server blades and Integrity NonStop servers to grow its business by ensuring that its online trading transactions occur with the speed and accuracy customers expect.
"We're proud that the largest stock exchange in the world chose HP to improve the performance of its IT architecture," said Paul Miller, vice president, Enterprise Servers and Storage, HP. "HP technology is ideally suited to serve as the backbone for the NYSE Hybrid Market's IT infrastructure, which routinely handles more than 500 million messages a day."
HP server technologies are helping the NYSE Hybrid Market adhere to the Securities and Exchange Commission-governed Regulation National Markets System, which is a series of initiatives designed to modernize and strengthen the national market system for equity securities.
HP ProLiant servers deliver the processing power required to manage daily trading volumes that peak or spike at any given time without any execution delays. The servers have reduced the average trade-execution turnaround time from seconds to milliseconds. In addition, HP technology allows customers using the Hybrid Market to automatically trade up to 1 million shares in a single order -- up from 1,099. That equals a potential 900-fold improvement in trade volume, which can help improve the NYSE's bottom line.
"During the past several years, the requirements of investors and securities companies have significantly changed," said Steve Rubinow, chief information officer, NYSE. "Although order commitment reliability is certainly paramount, users want a trading platform with flawless execution and transaction speed. HP is helping us deliver it all through these dependable server platforms."
In addition to assisting with its core trading infrastructure, which has been driven by NonStop servers for nearly 30 years, HP has supplied the NYSE with HP StorageWorks XP12000 storage arrays to run the critical applications that keep the trading floor up and running. The arrays connect to the ProLiant DL585, BL685c and Integrity NonStop servers to ensure real-time data is always available.
HP also will use its expertise in Linux to help the NYSE deploy a more flexible and cost-effective operating system for application development, deployment and maintenance.
HP focuses on simplifying technology experiences for all of its customers -- from individual consumers to the largest businesses. With a portfolio that spans printing, personal computing, software, services and IT infrastructure, HP is among the world's largest IT companies, with revenue totaling $104.3 billion for the four fiscal quarters ended Oct. 31, 2007.
