Platform Symphony Data Affinity is a breakthrough in solving the data latency bottlenecks caused by moving large data sets around on a compute grid. This add-on product allows Platform Symphony to significantly improve performance by taking into account data locality when scheduling workload.
Platform Symphony Data Affinity virtually eliminates the time it takes to load large data volumes required by applications such as counterparty risk valuations. By placing tasks on nodes that already contain the required data you can accelerate time to results by up to 80%. This effectively scales the application, allowing you to run more calculations in the same amount of time.
