Vela Teams Up with Enyx to Deliver Ultra-Low Latency Solutions

Subscribe to our newsletter

Vela, a trading and market access technology provider, has partnered with Enyx, a developer of ultra-low latency products, to provide its clients with access to Enyx’s field programmable gate array (FPGA) technology, initially focused on ultra-low latency market data solutions.

The firms have completed a proof of concept integrating the Enyx nxFeed, an ultra-low latency FPGA-enabled feed handler, into Vela’s software-based feed handlers to deliver wire-speed performance and jitter-free determinism at scale through a single, normalised API to access global markets. This allows Vela’s existing and future feed handler clients to leverage the improved performance of Enyx’s FPGA-powered solutions without the need for further integration as they are provided through Vela’s existing API that already supports over 250 venues.

Ollie Cadman, global head of product management and business operations at Vela, says: “There are specific clients and markets where FPGA technology is a necessity – and that’s a space where we haven’t played before. We’ve always worked at the software level, but there are market and trading strategies at firms that require very deterministic, low-latency profiles, and we want to bring our products into that market. We believe that partnering with Enyx is the best way to do that.”

Laurent de Barry, founder and managing director, trading solutions, at Enyx, notes that the integration of nxFeed into the Vela feed handlers is the first of what are expected to be more opportunities to add FPGA technology to Vela solutions.
