But the system doesnât 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 MicrosoftÂ® .NET interface lies the raw power of grid computing built on MicrosoftÂ® technologies. Developed from the ground-up in 100% managed MicrosoftÂ® C# for rapid and stable application development â and paired with the industry-leading MicrosoftÂ® SQL Server â Altaira provides an enterprise-class turnkey solution.
Altaira also leverages such MicrosoftÂ® 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 â using either native .NET objects or MicrosoftÂ® Internet Information Services (IIS) (âweb servicesâ for cross-platform compatibility with UNIX, etc...); this translates to virtually unlimited customization and extensibility. Whether trader, quant, auditor, or managerâ¦ Altaira isn't the only solution â but probably should be.
