Source: Mellanox Technologies
This paper takes a look at how Exegy's High Frequency Trading technology is taking advantage of the new Mellanox ConnectX-2 EN with RoCE (RDMA over Ethernet) 10GigE NICs that implement the RoCE industry standard for RDMA over Ethernet. Because High Frequency Trading places a premium on speed, there is a fast adoption rate for computer technologies and innovations that facilitate low latency trading. InfiniBand is just such a technology. However, many financial institutions have invested heavily in Ethernet over many years which has precluded them from taking full advantage of Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) as offered in the market-leading Exegy Ticker Plant.
