NYSE Technologies the commercial technology division of NYSE Euronext (NYX). Rules have been put in place by the SEC to ensure the efficient and fair availability of price information across securities markets. These trends place ever higher demands on market data distribution platforms, the technology that transports market data. NYSE Technologies boosted I/O performance by taking advantage of the Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) capabilities of InfiniBand connectivity solutions from Mellanox before adding support for ConnectX-2 EN with RDMA over Ethernet (RoCE). Mellanox's ConnectX-2 EN implements the IBTA's RoCE (RDMA over Converged Ethernet) standard and utilizes the popular OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution (OFED) and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). The performance in comparison with TCP is much better and this opens up a whole new level of low-latency trading with standards-based infrastructure.
