BACKTEST ALL THE DATA…
ALL IN REAL-TIME.
Banks and hedge funds have struggled to keep pace with the needs of their quant researchers because of the inefficiencies of mechanical media and the classic tiered-storage data management model. When insights are dependent on rotational media, portfolio managers lose the ability to maximize alpha.
Trading desks have always struggled to balance I/O performance with the capacity of data that must be retained in their market data and research archives. To address this, backtest data is often tiered across a pyramid of storage systems that are designed either for fast I/O or large capacity On the other hand, the abundance of market data that each firm maintains creates added opportunity to find new correlations and to improve the accuracy of trading models.
With VAST Universal Storage, all of your market data archive can be stored on one tier of scalable, affordable flash – making it possible to backtest and train all trading models in real time. VAST breaks the decades-old storage performance and capacity tradeoff to enable at-scale processing of market data and train AI data sets at any scale.
Universal Storage reference architecture: one system to serve the needs of all data sets
- all flash with hybrid economics
- pooled servers
- one namespace, one distributed cluster
MACHINE LEARNING MODELS FOR ALGORITHMIC TRADING
As quants continue to evolve the questions they ask their data – it becomes almost impossible to reprocess or re-analyze data that’s been exiled to slow, archival storage. The problem of storage bottlenecks has become such a contentious issue, that quants are now asking “what storage do you research on?” as part of the interview process.
Jump Trading Group selected VAST for their highly performant, low-latency Universal Storage as the foundation to its high-performance computing (HPC) cloud infrastructure.
VAST has broken the decades-old tradeoff between storage performance and storage capacity by engineering a new type of parallel file system and object storage architecture that enables unlimited processing on affordable flash.
