LONDON & NEW YORK & CHICAGO 12 September 2011 — Celoxica, a leading provider of hardware accelerated low-footprint, high-efficiency market data and trading solutions for high-frequency traders, today announced the launch of its hardware accelerated, fully optimized single-server Container™ solution for firms executing high-frequency trading strategies on futures exchanges.

“Celoxica’s hardware accelerated Container model further optimizes the trading process through smarter engineering. The result is a fully integrated, all-in-one single-server environment for market data and trade execution that eliminates architectural latencies and reduces the datacenter footprint needed to run futures-based trading strategies.”

Recent volatility and increased market volumes in the global futures markets has led to trading firms increasingly seeking to capitalize on short-term disparities between pricing on US and European futures markets.

Celoxica’s futures Container provides a fully optimized, ultra-low latency market data and trade execution platform, offering the complete suite of application solutions essential to executing high-frequency trading strategies for futures on a single server.

The Container’s hardware accelerated market data and order execution products enable firms that co-locate or proximity host to eliminate unnecessary network hops and minimize latency by offloading processing by offloading onto FPGA cards designed to optimize inbound market data and outbound execution speed.

The Container’s compact, single-server design also dramatically reduces the total cost of running the strategy by reducing the overall datacenter footprint required to run a trading strategy.

“In the era of co-located trading; physical distance, processing speed, determinism and throughput capacity have been the top priorities,” said Lee Staines, President at Celoxica. “Celoxica’s hardware accelerated Container model further optimizes the trading process through smarter engineering. The result is a fully integrated, all-in-one single-server environment for market data and trade execution that eliminates architectural latencies and reduces the datacenter footprint needed to run futures-based trading strategies.”
