QTX Accelarated Box – Low Latency Arbitrage Solution
In today’s highly competitive environment, the ‘race to zero latency’ is fierce and facilities like Co-Location, High Speed Broadcast (tick by tick) have become weapons to win low-latency trading battles. To master latency sensitive strategies, QuantX Technology brings you a robust solution – “QTX Accelerated Box”. The Accelerated Box is a fully loaded and finely tuned server which comes with a robust QTX Trading platform and makes it optimum for Low Latency Algorithms and arbitrage strategies.
The Processor and its Architecture
Our team has done an extensive research, which is regularly updated, on the best possible processors available in the market. We run all tests that are realistic and critical in nature, such as TBT Test and Order Firing Test, to find out most suitable processors for Low Latency Algorithms.
The Clock Speed
Clock Speed is one of the most critical factors for latency. To get the highest ‘Clock Speed Per Core’, we have adopted the approach of ‘Over Clocking’. We have experts on our panel who have more than a decade of experience in ‘Over Clocking’.
In the game of latency, everything is mission critical; therefore, its better to be dependent on memory rather than operating from the hard disk. Hence, choosing the right RAM is an important decision.
The Hard Disk
Though hard disks are suppose to be always avoided, but there still are certain areas where Operating System needs to perform some Disk Operations. With our extensive research on Hard Disks, we choose the most suitable SSDs with maximum IOPS to ensure the minimum possible hit on the entire system’s performance.
The Network Card
This is one of the main bottlenecks in the latency game. Picking the wrong network Card, and the Driver associated with it, can spoil the party even if you’ve deployed the best software. It is for this reason that QuantX Technology has taken support of one of the leading Original Equipment Manufacturer of Low Latency networking equipments. The NIC Cards we use are not only the most latency optimized, but are also well integrated with our Software to ensure that we extract even the last ounce of juice from the system.
OS is like physical body of the human being, where everything is hosted inside. Brain, Heart and other vital organs will be able to perform only if the host is robust. So we tune it finely, and strip it down to make it light weight. We also optimize the environment around the applications offered by our OS, to ensure no place for friction and latency.
Order Routing Engine and TBT Feed Parses
At QuantX Technology, we very well understand what can make or break a trading floor. Since the genesis of QuantX Technologies lies in the needs of traders, we critically understand the importance of latency in this game. Therefore, we have a highly Optimized ORMS, that is written using low level languages and Feed Parsers for all the exchanges like NSE cm / FO, NSE CD, MCX, BSE. The ORMS has been written with a very latency sensitive approach and every part of the code has been optimized to serve you best in this Low Latency war.
