Maximum availability in financial markets is critical. Any downtime can make the difference between profit and loss, and being able to recover from a potential disaster is essential. TMC Bonds, a financial services firm in New York, needed a system that would provide the shortest downtime window possible.
To achieve this, it implemented SAP ASE Cluster Edition to provide instantaneous failover capabilities in the event of production outages.
The result: system recovery has been reduced from an hour to mere seconds per instance. The new system, which runs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and an EMC VMAX storage area network, has achieved key benefits for TMC Bonds:
Annual increase in trading volume
Core transactions per hour
For system failover, down
from a potential hour
TMC relies on SAP to support high performance and future growth; it plans to test the new version of the software as it becomes available. Read the full customer success story.
