But the system doesn’t just look stunning. Altaira has also focused on the trinity of concurrent processing, load balancing, and flexible scalability ("scale-up" and/or "scale-out"): Behind the ultra-sleek Microsoft® .NET interface lies the raw power of grid computing built on Microsoft® technologies. Developed from the ground-up in 100% managed Microsoft® C# for rapid and stable application development – and paired with the industry-leading Microsoft® SQL Server – Altaira provides an enterprise-class turnkey solution.
Altaira also leverages such Microsoft® technologies as SQL Server Service Broker for reliable message queuing and delivery, SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) for built-in and custom reports, and Click-Once deployment for transparent application installation and upgrades.
Best of all, companies have the choice of extending their existing system(s) or customizing the Altaira system – using either native .NET objects or Microsoft® Internet Information Services (IIS) (“web services” for cross-platform compatibility with UNIX, etc...); this translates to virtually unlimited customization and extensibility. Whether trader, quant, auditor, or manager… Altaira isn't the only solution – but probably should be.
