Redline Slashes Latency With InRush 3

Redline Trading Solutions has released version 3 of its InRush tick plant, which leverages the latest Intel chips to slash “apples to apples” processing latency from five to just 1.2 microseconds.

According to Redline CEO Mark Skalabrin, the latency figures quoted relate to InRush (version 2 versus version 3) running purely on Intel chips, and not using Cell processors for data feed handling.  InRush 3 runs on Intel’s “Sandy Bridge” chip family, officially known as Xeon E5-2600 and E5-4600 series.  The chips feature up to eight cores, with embedded data I/O logic to lower latency.

In addition to taking advantage of the performance boost provided by the latest chips, InRush 3 also makes use of network interface cards from Solarflare Communications and Mellanox Technologies, which support kernel bypass processing.

As well as delivering updates to the full depth order book across markets in 1.2 microseconds, InRush 3 is also capable of handling bursts of up to 100 million messages per second on a single server.  Server hardware footprint is also reduced, which will be attractive to co-lo deployment.

The figures for InRush 3 demonstrate how software running on mainstream processors can deliver high performance without needing to resort to more exotic hardware acceleration technologies, such as Cell (as used by Redline) and FPGAs (used by many others).
