Online trading broker FX Pro has announced the launch of Solace powered messaging and systems infrastructure that it is integrating to handle a wide range of internal and customer facing applications, according to a joint press release today.
The new deployment of Solace powered solutions replaces ActiveMQ, Kaazing and ZeroMQ that FxPro was using and that are effectively being swapped for the new Solace solutions to power some of the broker’s core IT business needs.
FxPro CIO expects reduced latency from Solace solution
Finance Magnates reporters spoke with FxPro’s Chief Information Officer (CIO) Mr. Panayiotis Annivas today. He expects the changes to reduce latency, and improve the company’s ability to disseminate prices faster, including process a higher number of messages and related throughput efficiencies.
He added during the call how the solution from Solace was unified from a single provider, compared with running three different products, and how the integration progress is already near the end of the pre-production phase ahead of the live launch.
