Levyx and Vexata Set New Bar for Performance Benchmarks

By   /  July 3, 2018  /  No Comments

A new press release reports, “Levyx Inc., whose high-performance, ultra-low latency data processing software dramatically reduces Big Data infrastructure costs, in conjunction with Vexata, the leader in high-performance NVMe Flash storage systems, revealed record-shattering independent testing results performed by the Securities Technology Analysis Center (STAC®) using the STAC-A3™ benchmarking suite. In one benchmark, the Levyx-Vexata solution achieved 35% more trading simulations per second while using 70% fewer servers*. Levyx and Vexata estimate that the cost of the new solution is just a third of the previous record holder, providing nearly a 300% improvement in price/performance. Levyx had previously set the STAC-A3 mark in 2017.”

The release goes on, “Working with Vexata is an important next step since it demonstrates the performance-enhancing potential of Levyx’s software in highly-parallelized NVMe flash-based architectures. The underlying NVMe storage layer delivered by Vexata matches Levyx’s persistent dataframe layer resulting in a solution that serves as an ideal alternative to memory for hosting live datasets, all in a bulletproof enterprise-grade system. As NVMe storage systems become more prevalent in Big Data-class environments, Levyx products play a key role as an enabling software layer for all hardware providers capitalizing on the transition to data centric computing in modern datacenters.”
