Getting ready to deploy my first Windows Server 2012 virtual machine with SQL Server and potential Sharepoint

Getting ready to deploy my first Windows Server 2012 virtual machine with SQL Server and potential Sharepoint

This may get exciting as I am starting leverage these pretty decent tools. This could be the start of a min farm of virtual machines to talk to each other with a private mini cloud.

Why Sharepoint? Have you seen my hundreds of research papers and other PDF collection?

I say Booya.

Pretty impressive as I tried this remotely on my local desktop. It works on most devices so this is exciting technology and seems flawless. Refer to the links below. I must thanks for friends in London to showcase this.

Try this:

For IOS devices, you just need to download the Remote App from the Apple App store.

Windows Server still represents over 45% of the server market compared to Linux or Unix. This was from a recent Q4 report.

First of all, I would NOT recommend importing a ton of data into Matlab. I have tried 4 million observations in a time series which can slow down the system. I only recommend take a small subset of that data as in 100000 which should be fine for prototyping purposes. I am sure you know best. Anything more would probably will be overkill. Also, depending on my result this week, I am hoping to get a world class trading HFT system in place to do the importing of real time data and execution of orders. If not, I will fall back onto Tradelink which I am have confirmed recently for capturing IQFeed data and Interactive Brokers. Refer to the end of:

In summary, all Dukascopy and LMAX is no use due to funding requirement or technical limitations. As a result, I will be continuing with this theory of using Matlab and Simulink to generate the DLL as I have demoed in Feb. Also, this post below also confirms Tradelink can be used to execute trades from the Matlab/Simulink model DLL. This looks like how it will play out.

Is it me or is Interactive Brokers starting to go downhill fast for trading? Go into the dumper?

Interactive Brokers is the only option I have here in conservative Canada despite the headline. I hope to scale up to a better broker or even potential exchange like LMAX if the trading results improve in the long run.

The combination of IQFeed and IB should be fine for the small player but the development stack should be sufficient to scale up to a software solution which is better.

As for the database, I just posted this using Windows Server 2012 and SQL Server but those are really early days.

Can you predict markets with Big data, Hadoop, Microsoft Windows Server 2012, and SQL Server with data streaming?

As said, this stuff will be put on the backburner for a while as I need to focus on the profit potential strategies with Matlab, SImulink, and Stateflow. I will then hopefully implement the Windows Server 2012 and SQL Server at a later date. It is not the priority right now.

I do also find Linux just to be to counterproductive for me as there are too many bugs, dependencies that get broken, a flippant community that really does NOT help you succeed, no commercial support, no standards, and worst of all the 1970s era like command line. In this day and age, Microsoft has gone to great lengths to make Windows Server 2012 secure and stable. Most of all, it seems to be quite easy to use but this just speculation of course until I start playing with the platform.  I can easily say Microsoft has been very good to me and the groups I run.

I hope this helps.

Is the QNAP Turbo NAS a solid device for HFT with potential Linux, Windows Server, MYSQL Server, VMWare HyperV virtualization?

Is the QNAP Turbo NAS a solid device for HFT with potential Linux,  Windows Server,  MYSQL Server, VMWare HyperV virtualization?

Is the QNAP Turbo NAS a solid device for HFT with potential Linux,  Windows Server,  MYSQL Server, VMWare HyperV virtualization

First off, I have no affiliation with any of these companies mentioned.

So today I went walking into my Canada Computing supermart asking some tech question. I was taken over to this QNAP Turbo NAS box which I must say is very sweet. It is a self contained NAS unit that can handle over 15 TB of space with 4 external drives. It also includes your basic operating system like Windows Server or Linux which would includes MYSQL Server as a data store. Wow! It also includes your packages for FTP, printer server, and other environments including a Python or Java runtime environments. Did I mention these can all be shared among one system? It is also VMWare or Hyper V ready for virtualization. This is really good but the only two drawbacks are:

1. It is a ATOM processor which could be kind of slow

2. The price might be hefty for those but the ones I looked at ranging from $800-$1100 each. You are still saving on the software and hardware alone!

As for high frequency trading potential, I would recommend this for developing/testing only. If the regulators step in to delay all trades by a few seconds, this box could potentially be useful for even a production environment. Notice I say potential only.  This would definitely be a decent fit for my potential Trading-Shim which uses MYSQL as the backend for data store of market ticks.

This could get very interesting with this device.

Join my membership now to figure out if I use this thing.
