MX.3 relies on a tiered, service-oriented architecture. End users access MX.3 business solutions through a desktop app or web browser.
The application tier is composed of presentation, business, orchestration and technical layers. Orchestration layer services distribute calculations on business layer engines. The technical layer is the foundation of the platform. It handles capabilities such as authentication, authorization and service registry. Technical services leverage standard technologies such as Open Telemetry for monitoring and SAML for authentication workflow.
MX.3 leverages technologies such as Apache Storm, Apache Spark or Pivotal Gemfire for in-memory data grid to deliver high performance on critical calculation and aggregation services.
To price the most complex exotic derivatives, MX.3 can execute calculations over a grid of CPUs or GPUs. For the most computationally intensive workloads—market risk and reporting—the MX.3 platform leverages Kubernetes and containers to benefit from the scalability, flexibility and pay-as-you-go model of the cloud.
