Algorithmic Trading systems have changed the landscape of equity and futures trading considerably. High Frequency Trading applications convert time to money. While the number of companies using such technologies continues to rise, they compete against equally tooled companies.

Staying ahead in this competitive market means constantly refining your latest market simulating algorithm. What follows is lots and lots of walk-forward optimization and backtesting before rollout.

Reduce Backtesting Bottlenecks

Running millions of strategies against years of historical tick data requires storage that maximizes IOPS while driving down latency. Quobyte supports simultaneous parallel file access from hundreds of compute nodes which significantly reduces your time spent on backtesting.

Scale Performance Linearly

Stay ahead of your ever-increasing workloads. Quobyte lets you linearly grow both capacity and performance. Storage nodes can be added live, eliminating the need for reconfiguration downtime. Clients can immediately make use of the added resources.

One Size Doesn’t Fit All

Deploy Quobyte on any hardware, even cluster nodes can be different. Update your hardware on your own schedule. Without any Kernel dependencies, Quobyte is the most flexible software-only storage solution in the market today.
