IBM Linux at High Performance Computing Linux Financial Markets
The High Performance Computing (HPC) Linux Financial Markets event will take place April 4, 2011 at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, NY.
Wall Street is adopting high speed HPC systems with low latency to create new profit centers in arbitrage trading, and is using virtualization to increase back office efficiency and cost savings of existing HPC systems, according to the conference organizers. The 2011 show and conference will feature low latency and virtualization as two strategies to increase speed and increase full operations performance of HPC systems.
