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 and maximize profits.
Improving latency isn’t just about bandwidth, location, network interface, software or silicon. 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 EPYC™ 7003 Processors, announced today.
“In this particular market, it’s like the old wild west, the fastest draw wins, or in this case the fastest infrastructure, wins.” commented Todd Brannon, Sr. Director, Cloud Infrastructure Marketing at Cisco.
