X-IO Technologies has joined the STAC Benchmark Council. We have joined the council in order to engage and contribute in the dialog, alongside other vendors and financial institutions, to solve important business workloads including fast data, big data, and big compute.
The STAC Benchmark Council consists of over 300 financial institutions and more than 50 vendor organizations whose purpose is to explore technical challenges and solutions in financial services and to develop technology benchmark standards that are useful to financial organizations.
The STAC Benchmark Council focuses on areas where new technology has great potential to solve strategic problems–that is, where innovations intersect important business workloads. These workloads tend to be challenging from an engineering perspective, often because high performance is a core requirement.
High performance is where X-IO thrives. X-IO Technologies offers an ultra-dense NVMe based compute platform called Axellio, which has been purpose built to address the rapidly growing demands of Edge Computing enabling real-time processing of high bandwidth big data streams, in addition to a wide range of high-performance storage systems.
User firms include the largest global banks, brokerage houses, exchanges, hedge funds, proprietary trading shops, and other market participants. Vendor firms include innovative manufacturers of processor, server, storage, and network hardware, as well as horizontal-market software providers and vertical specialists.
