Enterprise market data platforms and low-latency market data platforms evolved separately. In Redline CEO Mark Skalabrin’s opinion, that’s an accident of history rather than a logical consequence.
At the December 2015 STAC Summit, Mark explained how the divergence of platforms has become a burden to the industry, and that unified platforms are both necessary and possible.
In Mark’s view, engineering excellence matters just as much for high-capacity, low-footprint enterprise distribution as it does for low-latency trading. He makes the case that the best unified architectures start with a high-performance core.
