Reducing I/O Latency with NextIO High Frequency Trading Hardware
Success in today's financial markets comes down to speed and agility. I/O Virtualization and SSD storage enable financial services industries to capitalize on new opportunities. NextIO provides the highest performance I/O and SSD solutions available anywhere, and use proven technology from companies like FusionIO to deliver products without compromise.
I/O Acceleration For Your Low Latency Trading Infrastructure
Low-latency trading infrastructure is mandatory for finance applications where, by some estimates, a 1-millisecond advantage can be worth $100 million a year. Quantitative trading and statistical arbitrageurs are constantly seeking ways to improve performance by reducing application latencies. vSTOR provides the capacity for running very large data sets in the world's fastest SSD array. And since flash memory is direct attached over PCI Express, there isn't any RAID or SAS technology in between the data and CPU, which would otherwise add I/O latency.
While the network can be the competitive edge for some financial institutions, it has the ability to also be a competitive disadvantage when servers are bandwidth starved or short-term spikes, when the markets are driving hard, can lead to delays in transmitting orders. NextIO leads the industry in providing the largest and most scalable I/O acceleration solutions available.
With the bandwidth aggregation in vNET I/O Maestro, customers can not only give each server up to 40Gb/s of throughput, but can also help ensure that the quality of service can be guaranteed for individual servers that are running the most critical operations. When money is on the line, vNET can help to drive better bandwidth utilization and minimize the lags of traditional networking, taking execution transmission times down and helping to drive more profitable financial systems.
And just as the landscape is constantly changing in the financial markets, the flexibility and power of the vNET I/O Maestro allows administrators to easily deploy, reconfigure and reprovision servers in seconds. With all of the I/O devices being shared at the top of the rack new services can be brought online rapidly, as quickly as the server can be installed in the rack and powered on. Disaster recovery, a critical need for any financial institution based on the criticality of the data that they are handling, can be assured through the I/O aggregation of vNET. Failing servers can be replaced easily and quickly through the nControl console without having to reassign WWPN and MAC addresses, a task that can sometimes take days.
So, when there is money on the line, vNET shines by bringing your financial institution more performance, throughput and flexibility to match the dynamics of the financial world.
