- TCP instead of Multicast: Solace’s use of client-specific TCP connections eliminates the two most common problems with multicast: slow consumers impacting other subscribers or the system as a whole, and clients wasting valuable CPU cycles filtering unwanted data. The use of client-specific connections also enable administrators to easily identify and address the root cause of problems at any level of granularity. Learn more.
- Fast, predictable performance: Processing market data in hardware eliminates the variable latency associated with processing messages in software running on general purpose servers.
- Lower cost and complexity: Solace’s messaging appliance can handle the workload of as many as 30 servers, dramatically reducing architectural and operational complexity.
- WAN efficiency: Since Solace’s appliances are aware of subscriptions across the network, data is only forwarded to other appliances with relevant subscribers. And only one copy of each message is sent over the WAN, with fanout happening at the edge.
The Open Middleware Agnostic Messaging API (OpenMAMA) is a lightweight vendor-neutral integration layer for systems built on top of a variety of message orientated middlewares. With unified support for many different kinds of data distribution in a compact, cost-effective platform, Solace’s platform is the ideal foundation for OpenMAMA-based market data distribution systems.
