Speeding Up Computing Grids in the Financial Industry

Over at the Xcelerit Blog, Jörg Lotze writes that a recent case study shows how financial services firms can improve the efficiency of their existing compute grids with multithreading.

It becomes clear that a multi-threaded parallel application is far superior to the grid approach traditionally used in banks. The multi-threaded application is 2.2x times faster than the same application running in individual processes. These performance enhancements are achieved with existing hardware but require a major redesign of the software if not employing the right tools. Even greater speedups can be achieved with hardware accelerators such as GPUs.
