Mellanox Speeds Exegy Plant

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and YOKNEAM, Israel -- Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX) (TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of semiconductor-based, server and storage interconnect products, today announced that its 20Gb/s InfiniBand products provide the low-latency and throughput performance demanded by the Exegy Ticker Plant, a hardware-accelerated appliance which processes and enriches market data for the world’s leading co-located trading operations. Utilizing Mellanox InfiniBand interconnect, this appliance feeds automated trading systems at extremely low-latency and high-throughput for faster processing of market data which results in a trading advantage over other competitors. This advantage is so compelling that the Exegy Ticker Plant is deployed and being used by financial firms at major North American exchanges as well as in London, and highlights the proliferation of InfiniBand into low-latency equities trading applications.

“The sheer volume of data coupled with the processing demands of building an order book presents latency problems for traditional software solutions,” said Jeff Wells, Exegy’s Vice President of Product Marketing. “Traders leveraging the Mellanox InfiniBand-accelerated Exegy Ticker Plant, with its low latency, high throughput and sophisticated levels of functionality, enhance their targeted trading efforts and enjoy the opportunity to be among the first to trade.”
