SQLAuthority News – NASDAQ Uses SQL Server 2005 – Reducing Costs through Better Data Management

I just came across PDF published by Microsoft to promote SQL Server 2005. I find few things very interesting. I will list them here.

NASDAQ

  • NASDAQ, the world’s first electronic stock market replaced its aging mainframe computers with Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2005 on two 4-node clusters to support its Market Data Dissemination System (MDDS).
  • Every trade processed in the NASDAQ marketplace goes through the system with Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2005 handling some 5,000 transactions per second at market open.
  • The system also responds to about 10,000 queries a day and is able to handle real-time queries against data without slowing the database down.

SQL Server 2005 Features

  • Scalability
  • Availability
  • Manageability
  • Built-in Business Intelligence

Data Management Capability: Business Benefits

  • Faster results
  • Better decisions
  • Trusted Platform
  • Total cost of ownership

  1. Hi pinal Dave,

    I hear the same news and happy that sql now comes in the top layer, But i have a confusion to take a descion whether to go in sybase or stick with Sql

    I have a Past Two year of experenice as a Sql DBA + Developer
    But now i have the option to work with sql or sybase not both
    for next 2 years.

    previously so many sybase guys said that u know sybase have the hold in the corprate environment and Nasdaq is running on sybase and all other financial players working on sybase , so they argue that sybase market is good and i am not feel confident with this as i worked with that for copule of months , i bore with the CUI based presentation of sybase

    so i want your suggest whether to move or stick with sql

    Regards
