ED&F Man Capital Markets Hosting & Infrastructure - Optimizing an operating system (OS)

Optimizing an operating system (OS) for maximum transaction speed involves removing all unnecessary functionality and interface detail, in order to allow the hardware to dedicate its speed to executing transactions.  Low-latency trading is key to traders who need to not only sent their order instructions to the market as quickly as possible but also the speed at which they receive the price upon which they make their investment decision.  Speed is measured in milli-, micro-, and nanoseconds – optimizing the six layers between an execution platform and an Exchange’s matching engine is the key to success.
