Colt launches managed FPGA market data solution powered by NovaSparks



Capital Markets firms to benefit from NovaSparks' ultra-low latency FPGA normalisation integrated with Colt's MarketPrizm API

HONG KONG, Apr 26, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - Colt announced today that participants can now receive TSE's Flex Full market data feed normalised with an FPGA solution[1] as part of its market data portfolio for Capital Markets customers. The normalised market data feed is available for consumption in colocation at the exchange and wrapped in Colt's MarketPrizm API. The fully integrated solution enables customers to benefit from the ultra-low latency and deterministic performance of FPGA technology combined with the flexibility and ease of use of Colt's API.

The managed solution enables clients in colocation to consume the feed immediately without requiring any additional investments or footprint, making this a very cost-effective approach. This FPGA market data solution, powered by NovaSparks, provides financial firms with the benefits of a managed solution, faster time to market, and the ultra-low latency offered by FPGA technology.

Novasparks' FPGA feed handler normalises data feeds in under one microsecond even during times of high market activity, hence ensuring ultra-low latency and deterministic performance. In addition, the full integration with Colt's MP-API means that firms can easily combine the ultra-low latency FPGA feed with Colt's software normalised solution to benefit from enhanced functionality and full redundancy.

"Capital Markets firms face significant challenges to remain competitive. A number of our customers have expressed interest in a managed FPGA market data solution, combining ultra-low latency and flexibility to help them succeed - and without upfront investment costs. At Colt, we thrive on putting customers first and setting the benchmark for customer experience. That's why we are pleased to bring to market this cost-effective solution that addresses our customers' requirements and further enhances the Colt Capital Markets portfolio," said Andrew Housden, Vice President, Capital Markets at Colt.

Olivier Baetz, Chief Operating Officer at NovaSparks, said, "We are proud to partner with Colt to accelerate their market data infrastructure offering. The tight integration of NovaSparks pure FPGA solutions with Colt's MP-API allows banks and trading firms to leverage the speed of FPGA market data processing in a simple and cost effective manner."

A licensed market data vendor since acquiring MarketPrizm, Colt offers market data feeds for major European, Asian and North American markets. It offers more than 50 feeds from exchanges and liquidity venues for equities, derivatives, commodities and FX, delivering data at consistently low latencies even during periods of volatility.

Notes to the Editor:
[1] The FPGA solution is a hardware-based solution that allows traders to normalise market data feeds at nanosecond speeds, even during times of high market activity.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Kelly Looney, director of DevOps consulting for Skytap, showed how an incremental approach to introducing containers into complex, distributed applications results in modernization with less risk and more reward. He also shared the story of how Skytap used Docker to get out of the business of managing infrastructure, and into the business of delivering innovation and business value. Attendees learned how up-front planning allows for a clean sep...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
