Capital Markets: Risk Management Technology

Risk management: getting the right data

In today’s financial markets, the ability to mine and sort enormous amounts of information in order to properly calculate risk is what sets firms apart. Companies are in a race to find the intelligence buried in their data to enable better decision making and meet ever-tightening regulations. At the same time, there’s pressure to reduce costs and drive down power consumption.

These are new challenges. And new answers are provided by the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family and Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family. In fact, leading risk-management software companies are creating applications that use the features in Intel® Xeon® processors to help meet demands across the financial services market segment.

Extreme data crunching

The Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family and Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family represent a leap ahead for Intel® Xeon® processors. They are built to deliver the flexibility, security, processing power, and throughput to handle today’s most data-intensive applications and risk-management systems.

Risk management technology: getting the right data

 

  “The next-generation Intel® Core™ microarchitecture has made a difference. We are seeing higher performance, quite a big gain.”  


Neil Bartlett, CTO at Algorithmics

Intel® Xeon® Processor E7 Family

Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family

Systems powered by our latest processor, the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family, are delivering a host of new reliability and security features and provide up to 25x the performance of older 4-socket single-core servers, enabling up to 29:1 server consolidation,1 up to 95 percent lower operating costs.23

With previous-generation Intel® Xeon® processors having proven their success, leading risk-management software companies are now optimizing software applications for the Intel Xeon processor E7 family.

Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family

The intelligent performance of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family means existing risk management applications will usually see an immediate impact on performance delivered directly from the processor. Built-in security features such as Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) evaluate software component integrity and provide a hardware-based root of trust for enhanced security against malicious software attacks that occur before the virtual machine manager boots. Intel TXT also allows platform integrity status to be reported into management software, providing visibility and a powerful control point for managing the security of virtualized workloads.4

Along with increased performance and security comes peace of mind from knowing you’re running some of the most flexible and efficient servers available.

1. 要求支持英特尔® 超线程技术(英特尔® HT 技术)的系统;请向您的电脑制造商查询。实际性能会因所使用的具体硬件和软件的不同而有所差异。在英特尔® 酷睿™ i5-750 处理器上不可用。若欲了解包括关于哪些处理器支持超线程技术的更多信息,请访问 www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/hyper-threading/hyper-threading-technology.html。

2. 声明基于对基于 4S 英特尔® 至强® MP CPU 3.3Ghz 处理器(单核、采用多线程技术、1 MB 二级高速缓存、8 MB 三级高速缓存、Potomac)的服务器和基于 4S 英特尔® 至强® X7560 处理器(八核、2.26GHz)的服务器所作的测试比较。计算包括对以下因素的分析:性能、功率、散热、电费、操作系统年许可成本和预估的服务器成本。此计算假设 42U 机架、每千瓦 10 美分、散热成本为服务器耗电成本的 2 倍、操作系统许可每年每台服务器成本为 90 美元、服务器每台成本为 36,000 美元(基于估算的列表标价和估算的服务器利用率)。所有的美元数额均为大约数。SPECint_rate_base2006* 性能和功率结果从对基于 X7560 和至强 3.3GHz 处理器的服务器进行的测试得出。平台功率在闲置时运行基准测试的稳定时间段得出。性能比基线高 20 倍。成本和投资回报根据英特尔内部分析预测得出,仅用于提供信息目的。

3. 性能测试中使用的软件和工作负荷可能仅在英特尔® 微处理器上进行了性能优化。性能测试(如 SYSmark* 和 MobileMark*)使用特定的计算机系统、部件、软件、操作和功能进行测量。对这些因素的任何更改可能导致不同的结果。您应该查询其他信息和性能测试以帮助您对正在考虑的购买作出全面的评估,包括该产品在与其他产品结合使用时的性能。

4. 没有计算机系统能够在所有情况下提供绝对的安全性。英特尔® 可信执行技术要求计算机系统具有英特尔® 虚拟化技术、启用了 TXT 的英特尔处理器、芯片组、BIOS、已验证的编码模块以及英特尔® TXT 兼容的实测启动环境(MLE)。MLE 可能包含虚拟机监视器、操作系统或应用。此外,英特尔® TXT 要求系统包含 TPM 1.2 版(由可信计算组织定义)以及用于某类用途的特殊软件。如欲了解更多信息,请访问 www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/data-security/security-overview-general-technology.html。
