Calypso Achieves Oracle Exadata Optimized Status
Calypso Technology Inc., a leading integrated capital markets platform provider, today announced that Calypso version 14 has achieved Oracle Exadata Optimized status through Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN). This demonstrates that the Calypso platform has been tested and tuned with Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Linux to deliver speed, scalability and reliability to capital markets customers.
Calypso is a highly scalable solution, designed to operate efficiently on standard hardware as well as achieve extreme performance on engineered systems such as Oracle Exadata. “In simulations of data-intensive straight-through-processing tasks, we achieved performance gains of up to 500% using Exadata hardware. Additionally, we saw a 2.8-times faster data injection rate which allows customers to easily scale and manage increasing volumes in a short amount of time . This is a significant advantage that the Calypso architecture provides to our customers,” stated Tej Sidhu, SVP- Engineering and Chief Technology Officer at Calypso.
“Customers who are faced with the challenges imposed by growing volumes and complexity and are seeking to lower overall cost of ownership through consolidation benefit from this collaboration,” Sidhu added.
Calypso is a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork. Oracle Exadata Optimized is part of the Oracle Exastack Optimized program which allows partners, such as Calypso, to leverage OPN enablement resources and dedicated lab environments to help develop, test and tune their applications on Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine and Oracle SuperCluster engineered systems. Oracle Exadata delivers extreme performance and is the ideal database platform for OLTP applications and data warehouses as well as the varied and unpredictable workloads of cloud computing. It is a complete package of servers, storage, networking and software that is massively scalable, secure and redundant. Oracle Linux brings the latest Linux innovations to market, delivering extreme performance, advanced scalability and reliability for enterprise applications and systems, along with worldwide, enterprise-class, low-cost support.
“Oracle Exastack Optimized recognizes partners who have optimized their solutions on a complete, integrated and cloud-ready infrastructure in order to help them accelerate innovation, unlock new features and functionality, and deliver superior value to users,” said David Hicks, Vice President, Worldwide ISV, OEM and Java Business Development, Oracle. “By achieving Oracle Exadata Optimized status, Calypso has demonstrated that Calypso version 14 is tested and tuned to work with Oracle Exadata Database Machine to help deliver optimal performance, scalability and reliability to customers.”
