Akuna Capital selected Solace messaging appliances as the data distribution layer of their global high-speed trading system. The Solace appliances, which have replaced homegrown middleware, give Akuna a fast, scalable and fully redundant infrastructure that allows them to focus resources on optimizing their differentiating trading strategies.


Akuna considered a number of approaches including commercial alternatives and continuing to invest in their homegrown infrastructure before choosing Solace. Akuna particularly valued Solace’s operational transparency and control, extreme reliability, and features such as diskless persistence, built-in WAN optimization and market data flow control.

Akuna Capital is a fast-growing boutique trading house based in Chicago that specializes in derivatives market-making and arbitrage.
