Market Data in the Cloud
Easily move workloads to the cloud
Eliminate the need for middleware
As businesses increasingly rely on cloud computing to meet their data processing and storage needs, many firms are looking to, or have already begun to, transition their workloads to cloud environments. However, delivering unprocessed multicast market data from exchange colocation sites to the cloud has always posed a significant challenge.
Traditional solutions have often involved converting multicast data to unicast via middleware or software layers, which can be time-consuming and costly. At Colt Capital Markets, we have developed a solution that eliminates the need for middleware or any data conversion.Explore benefits

This includes monitoring at source within the stock exchange, in transit as it moves through PrizmNet POPs before entering the cloud, and finally, within our virtual POP before hand-off to customers.
By monitoring the data at multiple locations within our infrastructure, we can quickly identify any issues, bottlenecks, and calculate latency through the network.
