The performance benefits of FPGA processors are clear and now you can leverage those benefits in the delivery of market data. Unlike analytic processing which requires very fast processors, the massively parallel processing used in FPGA development are well suited for market data messages.
ACTIV has spent many years of R&D perfecting this technology. ACTIV’s architectural design lends itself to FPGA acceleration perfectly, from our feed handlers to core databasing. ACTIV's hardware initiatives are tackling the most intensive message feeds around the world while adding speed to the core normalized database and model that ACTIV provides via its interfaces. As a client, you can leverage the few microseconds it takes now to build a full state and value add database of direct and away feeds.
