Mercuria is a privately-owned group of companies active over a wide spectrum of global energy markets including crude oil and refined petroleum products, natural gas, power, coal, biodiesel, vegetable oils, carbon emissions as well as metals and agricultural trading. Underpinning the Group’s market activities is a significant portfolio of strategic physical assets. Mercuria has 34 offices on five continents and is one of the world’s largest independent energy traders.

Mercuria uses Solace appliances to accelerate information flow within their datacenters and over the wide area network which connects them.

Traditionally, trading platforms have consisted of a reliable messaging platform for market data delivery and a separate guaranteed messaging platform for transactions such as orders and trade confirmations. Solace’s solution, with unified support for reliable and guaranteed messaging functionality, meets both of those requirements along with WAN optimization, high availability, business continuity and advanced application monitoring.

“We get an effective, scalable and performant messaging system in one offering from Solace’s platform: one that meets a wide range of our messaging requirements and the leading edge pricing execution technology we are building.”
