Financial data provider Thomson Reuters has launched a new direct data feed designed to help market participants handle increased data volumes, market volatility and requirements for low latency.
Thomson Reuters said its Data Feed Direct (RDF-Direct) will deliver consistent performance during peak and forecasted market data volumes for trading venue feed connectivity. The upgraded architecture utilises technologies including multi-core processing to decrease latency and improve system performance. In testing, the solution demonstrated an eight-fold improvement in throughput and a four-fold improvement in latency, Thomson Reuters said. Users will also be ale to access Thomson Reuters proximity hosting services.
“Access to accurate, reliable and timely market data is necessary to navigate today’s fragmented markets. The new enhancements demonstrate Thomson Reuters commitment to expanding its real-time solutions, embracing the latest technology innovations to provide clients with a competitive edge,” said Mike Powell, global head of enterprise information, Thomson Reuters.
