Software provider Leverate has redeveloped its LXFeed data feed from the ground up with multicast architecture resulting in an even faster feed.
These kind of improvements do not include shiny screenshots, but are certainly useful for traders. Leverate recently opened an R&D center in Kiev. For more about this performance boost, here is the press release:
September 2, 2013 – Leverate today announced that it is releasing a new version of its Forex pricing data feed, LXFeed, which has been completely rebuilt from the ground up in order to deliver an ultra-fast data tailored to Forex brokers. Investment in the infrastructure of Leverate’s data centers and communications has enabled Leverate to rebuild LXFeed with a cross-site multicast-style architecture resulting in a robust feed that is 50% faster with far greater stability.
“The new LXFeed is exciting because multicast architecture renders the Forex data feed even faster while not sacrificing stability or any of the built-in arbitrage and scalper-protection features,” says Leverate CTO Doron Somech.
The cross-site multicast architecture with two data centers allows LXFeed to simultaneously transmit data and add market access to more diverse liquidity pricing feeds. Multicast delivery is crucial in order to handle the growing amount of Leverate clients, as it increases the capacity of pricing servers. Direct fiber connections between LXFeed and top-tier liquidity providers have resulted in a further reduction of latency.
LXFeed is a robust ultra-low-latency algorithmic data feed that provides real-time data for more than 1,000 instruments from an extensive range of global financial exchanges. LXFeed delivers arbitrage-free and spike-free rates that reflect the true market price even at the market’s most volatile times, including periods of low market certainty.
