New STAC Benchmark Announced!

STAC recently performed STAC-M3 Benchmarks on a stack involving kdb+, DDN EXAScaler® parallel file system, and two DDN AI400X® All-Flash storage appliances. The stack under test was Kx’s kdb+ 3.6 database system distributed across 15 Intel S2600BPB servers accessing two DDN AI400X All-Flash appliances via the DDN EXAScaler 5.1.1 parallel filesystem.

STAC-M3 is the set of industry standard enterprise tick-analytics benchmarks for database software/ hardware stacks that manage large time series of market data (“tick data”). In this project, we ran both the baseline benchmark suite (code named Antuco) and the optional scaling suite (code named Kanaga). Is this benchmarked solution, DDN outperformed all publicly disclosed results in all year-high bid throughput benchmarks (STAC-M3.β1.1T.*.BPS).
