DataSurge: When Performance Matters

Credit Suisse

Credit Suisse were implementing a new system to reconcile the settlements for all of their equity trades.

As you can imagine, a system of this importance required specialist expertise to ensure that it worked efficiently and reliably from day one. Naturally, Credit Suisse turned to our consultancy to deliver that goal:

Within 3 weeks, our consultant on site had the new system beating performance requirements by 500% processing 350,000 trades per hour and slaughtering their previous performance benchmark by their existing Sybase/Unix system. We also ensured that Credit Suisse's disaster recovery plans were tried and tested by implementing a system of hot-standby servers.
