Lightweight Internet Protocol Stack
Free white paper, authored by GE Intelligent Platforms
IP traffic is increasing globally at a breath-taking place. In order to support the demand of high performance IP packet processing particularly for High Frequency Trading applications demanding low latency and higher throughput, users and developers are adopting a novel approach of combining PCI Express packet processing accelerator cards in a standalone network server with efficient TCP/IP stack to create a multi-port compute engine capable of executing high frequency trading algorithms along with regulatory and other necessary functions supporting the HFT server.
This whitepaper from GE Intelligent Platforms discusses the benefits of such an approach of using Light weight TCP/IP stack on one or more PCI Express packet processing cards in a standalone server to create a high performance, cost effective and extremely flexible accelerated server platform for High Frequency Trading applications.
