Lessons from Wall Street

Case studies in configuration, tuning, and distribution

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Consider a setting in which • Database speed and reliability can make the difference between prosperity and ruin. • Money for information systems is no object. • Data must be accessible from many points on the globe with subsecond response. The financial industry is exactly such an environment. This tutorial presents case studies in configuration, tuning, and distribution drawn from financial applications. The cases suggest both research and product issues and so should be of interest to the entire Sigmod community.
