FPGAs for Financial Workloads

Industry Challenge

Traditional financial workloads have huge data sets that need to be processed and pored through. An example workload is back-testing, which is a simulated trade on reliable historical data. It is a computationally intensive task because of the sheer volume of data.

For these high-frequency trading and risk management applications, the software demands are time and resource intensive. As a result, the hardware must keep up with the computing demands and constantly changing industry parameters. Hardware options include CPUs, GPUs, ASICs, and FPGAs. How can we choose the right solution to optimize our workloads, account for performance and power needs, and be flexible enough to change with evolving requirements?
