How Cisco and AMD are accelerating the world of high frequency trading
Written by: Sean Michael Kerner
The old adage 'time is money' is perhaps more true in the world of High Frequency Trading than anywhere else. Every nanosecond counts as trading firms are always striving to achieve the lowest latency possible in order to execute trades.
It's about accelerating every step in the transaction path, which is what Cisco is helping to enable with a new platform architecture for High Frequency Trading that benefits from the AMD EPYCTM 7003 Processors, announced today.
Management simplicity and innovation
That's where software innovation comes into play with Cisco Intersight, which is a foundational element of the Cisco High Frequency Trading architecture. Intersight is a Software-as-a-Service based technology that provides users with visibility and control over IT infrastructure assets. Brannon explained that Intersight will expose the different capabilities and configuration that the new AMD silicon can enable.
Improving operational costs
While time is money, in the world of real estate, it's all about location, location, location and the same is true in the world of High Frequency Trading.
