VIRT7507 - How to Design and Tune Virtualized Trading Platforms

Session Description

With recent advances in VMware vSphere 6 performance, we continue to see some of the most serious application workloads being virtualized. It is no longer an issue whether a tier-1 workload can be virtualized, but rather there are companies that are betting their tier-0 on the VMware stack. Société Générale (formerly NewEdge) is one such company, with their main trading platform called NVision running on a fully virtualized cluster servicing some 20 million trades per day. This session will cover various platform architectures that are used, with deep dive into the cluster design for this trading platform. The session will share many best practices and actual examples used with customers that are running such high-end platforms. Specifically, Java Garbage Collection, in-memory databases, vSphere tuning techniques, and rationalization of large deployments having 1000s of VMs and JVMs will be discussed. Come to this session to learn about GC tuning and vSphere recipes that can give you the best configuration for latency sensitive applications for high-end performance platforms.
