Higher Capacity and Performance Key to Meeting Customer Satisfaction Objectives as the Award-Winning FX Broker Expands into New Markets
Ottawa, Ont., February 16, 2016 – Online foreign exchange broker FxPro is using Solace technology to increase the capacity, performance and robustness of the messaging infrastructure that powers its advanced trading platforms and customer-facing interfaces.
FxPro is deploying a combination of Solace Message Router Appliances and Solace Virtual Message Routers to power a wide range of internal and customer-facing applications, including distribution within data centers, over wide area networks and via web and mobile devices.
“Our business is growing rapidly and it is necessary that we continue to offer a world-class trading experience and customer service as we expand our offering to cover more asset classes and geographies,” said Panayiotis Annivas, CIO, FxPro. “Solace gives us a rock-solid foundation on which we know we can build and grow our business to meet customer demand.”
The new Solace infrastructure replaces multiple previously used technologies, including ActiveMQ, Kaazing and ZeroMQ. FxPro selected Solace for its unique scale and fault-tolerant features as well as a unified API and administration framework, which will keep the architecture and operation of their system simple even as they grow their business.
“It takes an innovative approach and world-class infrastructure to satisfy the trading needs of forex customers in over 150 countries, and FxPro has both,” said Craig Betts, CEO, Solace Systems. ”We’re proud that they’ve selected our technology as the framework that ties together their many applications, locations and customer interfaces.”
