Deutsche Bank Improves Credit Risk Calculation with New System
Fusion-io has announced that Deutsche Bank has deployed ioMemory technology to reduce latency and increase performance in its credit risk calculation and information system (dbArtos). Fusion ioMemory was selected to accelerate the SAS business analytics and business intelligence software utilised by the Deutsche Bank dbArtos system.
The SAS software used in the Deutsche Bank dbArtos system is designed to help customers make fact-based decisions to improve investment choices, from identifying the right product to market to forecasting trends. Fusion-io integrates flash as a new tier of non-volatile memory, rather than attempting to integrate flash through legacy disk-based storage protocols. This architecture enables ioMemory to deliver a latency advantage driven by fewer context switches and a parallel construct, which eliminates bottlenecks.
