NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Scalable Informatics, Inc. (Scalable), a no-compromise provider of tightly-coupled fast computing, storage, and networking appliances for time series, massive storage, data warehouse, and noSQL databases, has been recognized as a key partner behind the world's first low latency on-demand financial cloud, built by Lucera. The breakthrough high performance cloud infrastructure is based on Scalable’s siCloud product, including their siRouter, siFlash, and JackRabbit systems.
“People who are serious about great software require an intimate relationship with their hardware, which is why we work so closely with Scalable. That's the only way we are able to greatly reduce latency and set new benchmarks around the world”
"Working with Lucera, we have been able to design a scalable system that brings powerful on-demand low-latency trading capabilities to anyone,” says Dr. Joseph Landman, CEO of Scalable Informatics. “By designing our hardware to run Lucera software as fast as possible we have helped reduce both the cost and deployment time for this new breed of trading system. Where else can a trader create an on-line account, deploy servers, and connect to any financial destination with a 100% software-defined network faster than it takes to drink a cup of coffee?"
Running on Scalable hardware, Lucera's cloud infrastructure redefines how low-latency collocated systems are deployed. Lucera provides on-demand provisioning and a flexible, scalable, and holistic infrastructure management that, according to Lucera, can reduce infrastructure costs by up to 32% while providing a virtually instant and flexible deployment model.
The Scalable-built cloud is also home to Lucera's LumeFX, a fully-distributed hyper-intelligent matching engine for Foreign Exchange that distributes processes across multiple machines vs. a central server, allowing for dynamic scale (by simply adding cores) as volume increases.
"People who are serious about great software require an intimate relationship with their hardware, which is why we work so closely with Scalable. That's the only way we are able to greatly reduce latency and set new benchmarks around the world,” stated Jacob Loveless, CEO of Lucera. “The reality is, the infrastructure demands of our industry are immense, and the only solution is to custom design systems to meet those challenges. With Scalable we do that, every day."
Underpinning the Lucera platform, Scalable has employed several of its leading edge products, including siRouter, which provides Software Defined Networking and Extremely fast NAT, the tightly-coupled JackRabbit compute/storage server, and the record breaking flash/SSD-based SiFlash storage array.
Lucera Financial Infrastructure, LLC is a premier cloud computing company for low latency financial clients. Lucera originally evolved from a high frequency team that was increasingly unhappy with the existing electronic trading process. After three years of development, Lucera introduced a low latency software-defined network and a custom tuned OS that removes the need for legacy hypervisors, and deployed redundant transcontinental fiber to connect New York and London. Lucera is currently available for clients with installations in NY4 (New Jersey) and LD4 (London). To learn more, visit lucerahq.com.
