Remove the Restrictor Plate with High Performance Load Balancing

Similar to the way that a carburetor restrictor plate prevents NASCAR race cars from going as fast as possible by restricting maximum airflow, inefficient messaging middleware prevents IT organizations from processing vital business data as fast as possible.

What Is The Best Messaging Transport? All Of Them!

Software messaging uses transport protocols (such as TCP/IP) to move data from one machine to another or from one process to another process on the same machine.

Over the last 10 years or more, the array of transport protocols has evolved from a variety of factors, including the relentless need for speed and throughput, particularly with the growth of High Frequency Trading (HFT) that drives the low-latency messaging market.

In addition to those protocol changes, each transport protocol has inherent advantages and disadvantages. And then on top of that, the design of the message software itself has its own advantages and disadvantages, too.

Many years of our own testing, as well as supporting our Ultra Messaging customers, have taught us that you can improve the performance of latency-sensitive and high-throughput messaging applications — often dramatically — with a thorough understanding of the most common causes of packet loss.

Zero Latency Tour Visits Chicago

29West ZLT29West’s popular Zero Latency Tour will make a stop in Chicago on September 23rd.  The well attended event rolled through London in May and New York in June.  “Chicago will be an important stop on the tour,” said Mark Mahowald, 29West founder and president. “The Chicago market, known for futures, options and derivatives is hungry for the technical success stories that 29West and its customers can share at this event.”

As in the other cities, the Zero Latency Tour Chicago will feature a presentation by Mahowald, “The Race to Zero,” as well as a technical session presented by 29West director of technical marketing Bob Van Valzah.  And equally popular is the panel discussion by 29West customers, partners or analysts.

“Real word use cases really tell the story best of all,” Mahowald added.  IT managers and Chief Technology officers get the most benefit from hearing how firms are implementing ultra-low latency messaging across the enterprise to optimize profits and ensure best exectution on trades.”

The September 23rd live event in Chicago will be held at the University of Chicago Gleacher Center.  Visit our website’s Zero Latency Tour page for more information and to register beginning August 1.
