So, with about a decade of experience in the area John will walk you through how the banks are using many of todays technologies, the grids, virtualisation and in-memory databases of 5-10 years ago are what we call "cloud" and "NOSQL" today. John will cover some of the distributed patterns, solutions and an overview of some of the more interesting technologies. Including GemFire, Neo4J, Terracotta etc. solutions to index, distribute and persist complex messages such as SWIFT, FpML, FIX and ISO-20022. Some code and a lot of use-cases.
