Datacom Systems today announced the launch of TradeView, a breakthrough in high performance monitoring of market data feeds.
TradeView has been specifically developed for large-scale deployments that are not currently addressed by existing, server-based, solutions. It is ideally suited to investment banks, hedge funds, and network providers who operate in a distributed environment and need to monitor data feeds at multiple locations, cost-effectively. TradeView is part of the new Datacom Trading Solutions portfolio, also launched today.
TradeView detects multicast sequence gaps in market trade feeds or micro bursts in traffic volume. It can provide analysis simultaneously on up to 4X 10 Gbps communication links or LAN segments, and at a price point which is approximately half that of traditional monitoring tools. The speed, deployment potential, and price point for TradeView render traditional centralized monitoring tools obsolete.
Tradeview is built on a solid, scalable architecture. A single device can handle 3 times more traffic than the entire US equities and options markets combined (up to 60 million messages per second).
With smart filters built into the device, supporting feeds from most exchanges across the globe, TradeView allows easy configuration to select the data customers want and/or need to see.
With a small footprint, low power consumption, and a low price, TradeView is the most cost effective and efficient way to monitor market data feeds to a variety of analytical devices.
Kevin Formby, CEO of Datacom Systems said, "Much of the technology used to monitor this infrastructure today is either not up to the task or involves expensive data capture, storage and analytic technologies that have remained more or less the same for twenty years. These technologies are expensive, and consume valuable power and real estate within expensive data centers. TradeView is ideally suited to wide-scale deployments and the cost conscious customer that are not currently addressed by existing solutions."
