Commenting on the announcement, Denery Fenouil, Chief Technical Officer and co-founder, said, âAs our QuantFEEDHANDLER low latency software is natively multithreaded, leveraging the power of multicore hardware is immediate. The combination of our software and the new Quad-Core IntelÂ® XeonÂ® processor 5400 series (formerly âHarpertownâ) make the decoding of most demanding market data feeds -like OPRA- possible on a single 8 core serverâ.
Nigel Woodward, Intel Financial Services Director UK commented, âIntelâs latest
technologies have captured the attention of the financial services community. The high performance and low energy consumption is promoting adoption in the compute intensive front office space for market data and scenario testing. We see this announcement as furthering Quant Houseâs leadership in this area and clearly shows the advantages of tuning leading edge software on IA (Intel Architecture).â
StÃ©phane Leroy, Head of Global Sales and Marketing at Quant House, added, "Itâs clearly part of our marketing strategy to further develop our technology in cooperation with industry leaders such as Intel. Iâm delighted to demonstrate our clients that, leveraging the Intel fasterLAB, we are able to raise the bar again and lead this very demanding speed race.â
