Calypso hooks up with DataSynapse

Calypso is a cross-asset, front- to back-office trading system offering support for multiple asset classes. LiveCluster is a computer distribution system that speeds up the process of computing mathematical models for pricing, valuation and risk management reports. The system takes the spare processor capacity from a company’s dormant machines and puts it to work on large, power-draining analytical computations. The integration will speed up Calypso calculations, including client proprietary analytics, by distributing them over a network of computers via LiveCluster.

Wachovia Corporation has combined Calypso’s straight-through processing framework with DataSynapse’s grid computing for its fixed-income derivatives area over the past two years, and plans to extend use of the integrated solution, according to Andy Cook, director of US dollar derivatives at Wachovia. Calypso and DataSynapse said they expected to work together with several financial institutions in a similar manner in the future.

DataSynapse won Risk magazine’s 2002 software product of the year award in January 2002 for its LiveCluster product.
