Azul Systems, Inc. Key Developments

Celer Technologies Embeds Azul Zing for Next Generation Java-Based Trading Platform

Azul Systems and Celer Technologies announced a partnership that allows Celer's customers to leverage the power of Zing(R), Azul's Java Virtual Machine (JVM) designed for systems that require consistent low latency and high throughput. By integrating Zing into Celer's platform, their next-generation, Big Data trading solution is able to leverage a Java runtime that delivers consistent low latency for all their trading modules - from trade implementation to execution, from clearing to client reporting and from risk management to compliance monitoring. Together, Celer Technologies and Azul Zing deliver a competitive advantage to trading firms, giving them the ability to completely customize the application, analyze large amounts of data in real time to find the best opportunities and enjoy market leading trade execution. The Celer Technology platform is modular, highly customizable and designed to allow companies to react to changing markets and business requirements. It is built around a central event processing engine which allows the different modules to communicate seamlessly with one another. Trading firms can set up the system to be as simple or complex as their business requires and react to market changes such as the increasing need to minimise and manage trading latency in global financial markets. As their business evolves firms can implement more sophisticated customizations, respond to new latency requirements and analyze ever-larger datasets in real time. With the combined Celer and Azul solution, firms can customize their system frequently with confidence that any modification, including the addition of new users, markets or asset types, will not degrade throughput and affect latency.

Quotix Chooses Zing to Optimize Performance of its FX Liquidity Aggregation Software

Quotix has implemented Azul Systems' Zing in order to eradicate Java garbage collection (GC) issues and latency outliers. Azul Zing is a unique JVM that provides consistent low-latency with high throughput, supports large in-memory datasets without performance penalties, and solves the Java "warm-up" problem. Zing eliminates the operational interruptions and response time outliers often experienced by Java-based trading, risk and compliance applications in the financial services market. Quotix's tests proved that Zing substantially reduces maximum pauses and enabled its FX aggregators to perform at higher loads.

Azul Systems and Orc Partner to Enable Smarter High Performance Trading

Orc and Azul Systems announced a partnership that enables Orc customers to leverage the power of Zing(R), Azul's Java Virtual Machine (JVM) targeting environments requiring low latency and high performance. By certifying the Zing Java runtime for Orc Liquidator deployments, Orc's automated trading engine is able to take advantage of the high throughput and lowest latency Java platform available. Together, Orc Liquidator and Zing deliver a competitive advantage to firms through faster and more consistent trade execution, the capacity to pursue new opportunities, and the flexibility to deploy highly sophisticated automated trading strategies. Orc Liquidator leads the market because of its unique ability to act on a large number of opportunities across a broad set of markets and asset classes. Over time, firms seek to scale their business by implementing ever more sophisticated strategies that require real-time analysis across very large datasets. By deploying Orc Liquidator on Azul Zing, traders can confidently develop these complex strategies achieving high throughput and low-latency regardless of dataset size. Azul's Zing is a unique JVM that provides consistent low-latency with high throughput, supports large in-memory datasets without performance penalty, and solves the Java warm-up’ problem. Zing eliminates the operational interruptions and response time outliers often experienced by Java-based trading, risk, and compliance applications in the financial services market. Zing's ReadyNow!(TM) technology solves Java's warm-up problem by allowing applications to start fast at the opening bell and stay fast even as market conditions change during the day. Zing is a fully certified and standards-compliant JVM, enabling traders to benefit from the combination of Zing and Orc Liquidator without needing to recompile or re-code their existing strategies.
