E8 Storage and McObject Secures STAC Benchmark Records

Today, E8 Storage announced that McObject has set multiple STAC-M3 benchmark records, while running on E8 Storage. This powerful combination produced record-breaking results in STAC Benchmark, with the fastest tests performing 17x faster than the previous best results.

The outstanding results include:

  • Faster mean response times than all previously published best results for 5 of the 17 operations.
  • More consistent response times (lower standard deviation) than all previous best results for 7 of the 17 operations.
  • 17.0x the performance of the previously published best result for the write benchmark (STAC-M3.β1.1T.WRITE.TIME) using a non-McObject database.
  • 9.1x the performance of the previously published best result for the NBBO benchmark (STAC-M3.β1.1T.NBBO.TIME) using a non-McObject database.

"We're absolutely delighted to have set so many new records. We've known for a while that eXtremeDB delivers exceptional performance, and these latest benchmarks prove it again. It's particularly gratifying to have set these records with our new Financial Edition (for HPC) running on E8 Storage," said Steve Graves, CEO and co-founder of McObject.

The STAC-M3 benchmark suite is the standard for independent industry testing of high-speed time series data analytics. It was specified by a number of banks and hedge funds in the highly-respected STAC Benchmark Council, facilitated by the Securities Technology Analysis Center (STAC). The tests are designed to measure the performance of processing tick-by-tick market data, i.e. a ‘tick database', with well-defined hardware and software technology stacks.

"These results offer proof that E8 Storage solutions and NVMe technology can deliver the speed and acceleration required by data- and transaction-intensive applications for financial trading systems," states Zivan Ori, Co-founder and CEO of E8 Storage. "Working as a team focused on developing an innovative package, has enabled E8 Storage and McObject to break performance barriers and consistently provide performance improvements and responsiveness to multiple workloads."
