OTTAWA, Canada, Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Diablo Technologies and 60East Technologies today announced that they have entered into a strategic alliance to deliver the world's most advanced, low-latency electronic trading platform. Both companies will partner closely to create a joint solution and align product roadmaps designed to leverage Diablo's Memory Channel Storage™ (MCS™) architecture and the capabilities of the AMPS messaging platform from 60East Technologies®.
By combining ultra-low latency, high transaction flash memory based MCS devices with the world's fastest high-volume low-latency message streaming database, Diablo and 60East deliver on the promise of extreme performance and efficiency, set to disrupt the financial services sector. Diablo's Co-founder and Vice President of Strategic Customer Engineering, Franco Forlini and 60East's Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey M. Birnbaum will share details behind the emerging partnership during their "drill down" workshop at the Low-Latency Summit Conference & Exhibition at Convene in New YorkNovember 12 at 4 p.m. EST.
Diablo's MCS architecture connects NAND flash directly to the CPU through the server's memory bus, enabling linear scalability in performance at extremely low-latencies for the most demanding enterprise applications. By placing high-capacity flash directly onto these massively parallel structures, MCS breaks the final latency and IOPS paradigm inherent to existing NAND-based storage solutions. When combined with 60East's AMPS messaging platform, the two technologies are able to deliver more than four times as much throughput and an order of magnitude of lower latency in the 99.9th percentile.
Diablo's MCS technology will be leveraged in SanDisk's ULLtraDIMM™ SSD, and will be brought to market by SanDisk as part of an exclusive relationship between the two companies.
"We're always looking for the lowest-latency, highest-throughput storage devices and we're excited by the results we've seen from running Diablo MCS in our lab and delivering performance that stays well ahead of the demands of our most aggressive customers," said Birnbaum.
"We chose to work with 60East because of their reputation for success in mission-critical, high performance computing. The synergy between Diablo and 60East is amplified by our combined commitment to providing innovative, leading-edge solutions that can be leveraged across the entire enterprise," said Riccardo Badalone, Co-founder and CEO of Diablo Technologies. "Our dynamic partnership integrates the two-best-in-class technologies to deliver a joint platform built for the most demanding, low latency applications."
Diablo and 60East recently evaluated MCS performance on the AMPS storage engine to demonstrate low latency and low jitter that drastically surpass the leading PCIe-based technologies. 60East ran its standard I/O profiling tool and workload simulator to reveal transaction volumes on the order of millions of messages per second, with predictable latency and throughput. A white paper detailing the testing and results is available for download at http://www.diablo-technologies.com/files/AMPSMCSInfoSheet-HQ%20ReExport.pdf
Forlini and Birnbaum will join forces to share their industry expertise during the "Extreme Messaging Performance with MCS and AMPS" presentation at the Low-Latency Summit Conference & Exhibition at Convene in New YorkNovember 12 at 4 p.m. EST. This technical workshop goes in-depth with the creators of these architectures to detail the innovative blending of hardware and software that will set a new industry standard in trading technology. Diablo and 60East will also be exhibiting their leading-edge solutions in Booth 102.
