Today, we are pleased to add MetaBit to the ever growing list of financial service providers that have chosen Solace to be their routing and delivery platform of choice. They’re using our hardware as the foundation of their FIX-based DMA and liquidity hubs to efficiently distribute information to customers.

Increasingly, customers do not have just a low latency problem, or a queuing problem, or an efficient WAN delivery problem, they have an information delivery problem that is a combination of all three. The prospect of procuring three kinds of software that needs to be made redundant and scaled across separate racks of servers feels so 20 years ago when a single hardware content router can consolidate all of these into one footprint and one API.
Once again Japan is leading the way in innovative, next generation services.
