CSP, Inc. Enhances Myricom Position in High Frequency Trading by Releasing New
Version of DBL Software
CSP Delivers Reduced Latency for Latest Microsoft Windows Operating Systems
BILLERICA, Mass., March 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CSP, Inc. (Nasdaq:CSPI), a
provider of IT solutions, systems integration services and dense cluster
computing systems, today announced that it is enhancing its vertical market
software offering for High Frequency Trading by releasing DBL 3.0 for
Microsoft Windows Operating Systems. The newest version of DBL delivers
reduced latency and support for Arista Networks DANZ time stamping as well as
support for the latest Windows Operating Systems including Windows Server
DBL 3.0 achieves this significant reduction in latency through a newly added
Transparent Acceleration mode for existing applications on the Microsoft
Windows Operating System, improving performance and stability. Performance
test results show less jitter and average latency improvements of 0.5µs and up
to 5.0µs depending on the complexity of socket operations. This latency
improvement allows Windows to approach the latency levels historically only
available on servers running Linux operating systems.
Also coming with DBL 3.0 is an extended DBL Application Programming Interface
(API), which introduces support for TCP channels. Applications which already
use the DBL API for UDP traffic can now easily add low latency TCP connections
into their platform.
Finally, DBL 3.0 supports Arista Networks DANZ time stamping which enables the
Arista 7150S switch hardware to time stamp every packet. This maximizes
analysis accuracy and resolution by placing the time stamp closest to the
actual traffic path, removing queuing and jitter typical in multiple input
analysis networks. These performance improvements and added features build on
a production proven platform. CSPI's customer, SpiderRock was a beta customer
and has now deployed DBL 3.0 in their production environment with very good
"SpiderRock started deploying Myricom's DBL application several years ago and
have found both the core performance and product feature set to be
exceptional," explains George Papa, Founder and Partner of SpiderRock, a
provider of a fully integrated trading platform built on a low latency
infrastructure that allows traders to electronically trade equity options and
related stocks, and access sophisticated algorithms to optimize trade
execution. "We recommend this product to anyone serious about building low
latency and/or high message rate solutions in the financial space or any other
"We are very excited about the positive market reaction to the announcement of
DBL 3.0," said William Bent VP/GM MultiComputer Division of CSPI."CSPI is
developing products to enhance the Myricom product family so we can deliver
the extreme networking performance our customers demand."
DBL 3.0 for Windows is available now.Existing users of DBL 2.0 for Windows
can upgrade to DBL 3.0 for $395.New User Licenses can be purchased for
