FX trading architectures highlighted in new whitepaper from Catena

Technology architecture and design firm Catena Technologies just published a new white paper about appliance-based messaging applied to FX trading.

The paper addresses the business and technology requirements of FX trading and provides benchmark data measuring performance in a variety of configurations and usage patterns. The test results cover latency behavior, scalability and the flexibility to simultaneously deal with fast and slow consumers. Catena used Velocimetrics TipOff for all their test measurement.

I recommend downloading a copy, it’s a very interesting read. It’s available in Japanese and Chinese.
