On a typical trading day these days, fewer shares change hands compared to the pre-2009 stock market heyday. But the peaks of activity are as intense as ever, and are sometimes even more concentrated. The combination of lower volumes and concentrated volatility makes the demands on a stock exchange’s technology infrastructure far more challenging, according to Saro Jahani, CIO of New Jersey-based Direct Edge. Jahani is upgrading critical components of his platform to the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2690 and says the move will help Direct Edge handle the bursts of market activity both smoothly and affordably.

• Peak performance. Direct Edge needs balanced high performance and exceptional I/O throughput.
• Scale. Direct Edge prizes scalable infrastructure that can grow quickly and affordably as markets rebound.
• Stability. System failures can affect market behavior, so solid reliability is essential.

• Peak processing. Direct Edge is moving compute-intensive workloads to clusters of HP ProLiant* DL360 Gen8 servers powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2690 running Microsoft Windows* Server 2008 R2.
