JPMorgan's new FPGA Supercomputer

JPMorgan has once again deployed a new FPGA-based supercomputer to help in it's efforts to process and analyse data. The previous supercomputer was used to speed up batch based processes, specifically around the end-of-day risk calculation. They claimed a time reduction from 8 hours to 238 seconds (a reduction of approx 99.2%).

This time, JPMorgan has targeted it's at it's dataflow applications. Although details are scares, we'd assume that this is now looking at the data feeds coming into the business, to allow for analysis of specific triggers. The rise of the FPGA-based system within finance will continue. What was traditionally a difficult engineering area has be greatly improved with new tools and manufacturing processes.
