Ultra-low latency messaging software

1 March 2008

TIBCO Software has announced the general availability of TIBCO Rendezvous 8.0, the latest release of its low latency messaging software. The latest version of TIBCO Rendezvous provides even lower and more predictable microsecond latency, improves manageability, and delivers the reliability to address IT challenges and aid business responsiveness to threats and opportunities relevant to the financial services and other realtime data-driven industries.
For example, in the capital markets sector, as the volume of data and adoption of algorithmic trading grows, financial institutions are constantly looking for ways to support increasing message volumes and reduce the time, or latency, between when an event such as a stock price change occurs and its actual response. Reducing latency for these companies can result in significantly higher profits and in some cases millions of dollars.
TIBCO Rendezvous 8.0 has been optimised to deliver even lower microsecond latency. With this latest release, the new TIBCO Rendezvous Server In-Process Module Add-on embeds daemon functionality directly into applications for additional microsecond savings.
Additional TIBCO Rendezvous 8.0 release highlights include:
* Up to a 75% reduction in standard deviation from end-to-end message latency.

* A lower cost of administration through self-managing protocols and centralised management that enables intelligent network utilisation such as subject-based multicast mapping and service port mapping.

* Greater reliability for the most demanding applications in 24x7 environments including end-to-end protection from transmission failures; and increased throughput, with additional support for more InfiniBand and 10 Gigabit Ethernet vendors.
TIBCO has worked with its business partners to ensure ultra-low latency messaging software and network infrastructure technology, such as InfiniBand and 10 gigabit Ethernet, work together as a seamless, high-performance integrated backbone.
TIBCO also collaborated with operating system vendors to help reduce overall end-to-end latency, including testing and releasing concurrently with SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 10 from Novell. "Cutting microseconds out of applications that are already low latency requires vendors to work together, and working with TIBCO Rendezvous is important to our customers," says Moiz Kohari, vice president of engineering for Open Platform Solutions at Novell. "Our continued work to optimise TIBCO Rendezvous with SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time gives our joint customers an out-of-the-box, low-latency solution with the support they need to deliver the next generation of ultra-low latency market data and transactional systems."
