ACTIV Financial has announced the second generation of ACTIV's Market Data Processing Unit (MPU). Its FPGA-accelerated market data offering, ACTIV MPU Gen2 aims to help companies manage escalating data volumes without the need for additional hardware or other operational investments.
"The once dominant 'throw another server at it' mentality has become costly and unsustainable for financial firms today, particularly as data volumes continue to explode," said Frank Piasecki, president and co-founder of ACTIV Financial. "ACTIV has always sought to provide top-quality low-latency market data solutions, giving our clients the edge they need to compete cost-effectively. With MPU Gen2, ACTIV is delivering a global enterprise solution that will solve our client's message rate problem while at the same time significantly reducing their hardware footprint by as much as 80%."
