ICC’s financial solutions are divided up among four application areas:
1. High Frequency Trading / Overclocking – With the importance of pure speed and performance in high frequency trading, ICC utilizes the most advanced overclocking and hyperspeed technology. By combining specific CPUs and motherboards designed to support frequency and voltage overclocking, users can realize 20-40% higher processor performance speeds.
2. Options Trading / Parallel Processing – Unlike high speed trading, where clock speed is paramount, options trading is an extremely latency-sensitive world requiring a massive amount of computational power that simply overclocking cannot achieve. The ideal fit for these challenges are systems equipped with NVIDIA GPUs or Intel Xeon Phi – combining hundreds of small processing cores with a software element to run multiple complex simulations at the same time.
3. Infrastructure / High-Density Systems – Regardless of what you have running your front-end computations, it’s always important to have a reliable foundation for your backend infrastructure. High-density architectures like twin and blade servers are great options because their modular designs allow users to achieve high capacity and performance while minimizing energy and real state costs.
4. Acceleration / Nytro MegaRAID & WarpDrive – For those applications that need the highest level of performance, acceleration technology such as LSI Nytro can help give your financial solutions the edge. By integrating intelligent caching and PCIe-attached flash storage into a SAN or DAS environment, users can realize a dramatic improvement in application performance.
On June 4-5, visit ICC at the Trading Show Chicago in booth #331 where they will be showcasing their overclocking and infrastructure systems. For those interested in attending the expo only, registration is completely free. If you want to attend the main conference – which includes not only the expo but also the formal agenda, keynotes, and panel sessions – ICC encourages you to contact them, as they have some primary conference and guest passes to give out. The event will be held at:
600 East Grand Avenue
Chicago, IL 60611
