After an extensive review of available technologies, we realized that Solace met or exceeded our needs today and into the future.”

Challenge

Standard Chartered Bank has operated for over 150 years in some of the world’s most dynamic markets. The company earns around 90 percent of its income and profits in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. As one of the world’s largest foreign exchange traders, Standard Chartered required a scalable next-generation infrastructure capable of low-latency data distribution across trading locations.

Solution

Standard Chartered selected Solace to provide the messaging infrastructure for their next-generation foreign exchange trading platform, and as their new standard for high performance messaging. Solace appliances were initially deployed in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, London and New York to provide both reliable and guaranteed messaging between Standard Chartered trading venues.
