Lab Service Engagements


Our Lab Services engagement provides full access to Oktay Labs, our enterprise class Innovation Lab or into our client’s existing lab, to allow the technical expertise of Oktay’s performance team to execute testing via our proprietary test suites to produce a full detailed report on all testing comparisons and results. This service is available to both Enterprise IT consumers and Technology firms looking to solve Enterprise application and business challenges.

This service is aimed at clients who require modeled use cases that simulate real world use of the technology stack needing performance testing with strong technical expertise to understand the results and to effectively re-tested with relevant optimizations. Our team is hands-on for decades with functional and performance testing of infrastructure and/or applications in trading systems, legacy database systems and over the last six years equally skilled in modern informatics and data processing systems.

Through our industry and supplier partnerships, Oktay Technology can facilitate access to the latest innovations in server, storage, memory, network technologies and modern informatics available via Open Source such as Kafka, Storm, Flink, Spark, Mongo, Ignite, Tensorflow, Docker, Kubernetes, etc...

Oktay Labs utilizes three proprietary Test Suites to benchmark a wide range of relevant use cases

(Call us for a detailed description of each Suite and Tests)

1.     Trading System Simulation: Test Suite A

    • Create real-time transactions that simulate actual trading events such as all order and trade events. The goal is to mimic transaction generation from large-scale algorithmic trading flows 
    • Various home grown low level tests modeled from actual trading systems to help performance test key trading technology either individually or end to end, such as NICs, Switches, Servers, Memory, and Storage


2.     Big Data, Machine Learning and Streaming: Test Suite B

    • Leverage our Trading System Simulator to performance many different tests against specific Open Source Streaming and Big Data Analytic engines


3.     End to End Post Trade Streaming and Analytics: Test Suite C (I1...I5)

    • This complex and rare suite of tests are all home grown based on real system designs for a modern post trade informatics and data processing system. It is critical to helping firms benchmark and/or compare(apples to apples) these real world use cases against various system settings, hardware such as local, direct or centralized storage models, servers, cpu, gpu, memory architectures, application or storage networking, NICs, etc…
    • This end to end test suite is also useful to optimize application infrastructure software such as containers, VMs, CNI, filesystems, and orchestration enginesDifferent big data distributions, etc…)
    • For a complete list of the five Informatics benchmarks please contact us and we would be happy to provide a detailed description of each test.
