Here we are compressing 5 minute bar on a 12 core machine. We can see the 5 minute intraday compressions being created in parallel.
Doubling the number of cores on a machine will half the processing time whilst in a parallel configuration.
Portara can have a multi-processor machine custom built to your requirements, please ask for details. Remember though Portara is more than capable of operating on a small laptop without the need for huge processing hardware. Its entirely up to you how you decide to operate.
