QuantHouse and Enyx introduce FPGA-accelerated market data as a service

Combining end-to-end, ultra-low latency market data normalisation and distribution with fully managed support and co-location services within the Hong Kong Exchange datacenter

Hong Kong, London, New York, 19 September 2018: QuantHouse, the leading independent global provider of end-to-end systematic trading solutions including innovative market data services, algo trading platform and infrastructure solutions, today welcomed Enyx to the qh API ecosystem. The addition of Enyx, the premier provider of low-latency, FPGA-based market data and order execution systems, provides trading firms with immediate access to a high performance, FPGA accelerated end-to-end market data service.

FPGA solutions have been predominantly leveraged by an elite few given the associated barriers to entry for dedicated platforms. To help reduce cost and time to market, Enyx and QuantHouse delivered, as a service, an FPGA accelerated hardware solution that interfaces directly with existing trading applications via Enyx’s API or qh FeedOS API. This “plug and play” solution allows swift access and provides the benefits of an FPGA-powered feed handler for strategies requiring ultra-low latency with absolute determinism, in an easy to use, fully managed and cost-efficient offering.

Arthur Tricoire, Managing Director, APAC, QuantHouse, said, “The wider adoption of automated trading in APAC is driving a growing appetite among quant teams for innovative trading solutions. Working with Enyx, and with an initial roll out with the HKEX Securities and Derivatives segments, we are providing the combined benefits of hardware acceleration using FPGA-enabled feed handlers with software optimized distribution and managed services. We look forward to expanding this solution to our wider community in response to demand for continuously improved determinism and lower latencies.”

Arnaud Derasse, CEO, Enyx, comments, “To remain competitive in today’s automated trading environment, low latency trading firms increasingly demand higher performance, wider coverage and reliable support while trading in-colo at an efficient price point. By joining the qh API ecosystem, with their existing managed services and exchange connectivity, we’re able to bring to market an end-to-end, high performance market data solution that satisfies even the most latency sensitive trading infrastructures.”
