Stacks Image 6059

We are excited to announce availability of our 100G analytics platform, the x-100, made possible by our partnership with the world’s leading 10G 40G 100G packet capture appliance vendor, FMADIO.
  • 100Gbps sustained packet capture 
  • 148.88 million packets a second
  • Configurable interface
  • Multi-hop, multi-protocol performance monitoring
  • Fully customisable adaptive alerting
  • Data enrichment and Transformation

Industry leading Capture and Analytics combined in a single platform
Underneath, the FMADIO platform boasts an FPGA-backed sustained capture rate of 100Gbps with a burst capture rate of 200Gbps and 3.2ns-resolution hardware timestamping resulting in lossless capture of 148.88 million packets a second. 

On top, the xMetrics Flow Monitoring solution delivers the same rich, real-time analytics customers have come to rely on to expose the performance and behaviour of their highly-distributed, low latency trading and market data platforms.

Highly flexible, feature rich and cost effective 
The analytics function is isolated from the capture function, with one or more discrete xMetrics instances running as CPU-isolated LXC containers on the FMADIO host; this ensures that users can have full confidence in both the traffic being captured, and the analytics data being generated, as neither function interferes with the other. 

Also available in both 10G and 40G variants in both 1U and 2U form factors, the integration of these two market-leading solutions into a single platform offers both the most cost-conscious and the most feature-demanding clients a solution unmatched by any competing vendor. 

Monitoring and Analytics that provides continual Return on Investment 
Multi-hop, multi-protocol latency monitoring, market data monitoring - including gap detection - and traffic measurement, with real time alerting. 

Decode and persistence any and all orders, fills, quotes or ticks and, backed by easy-to-use APIs, provide an audit trail of trading activities suitable for compliance and regulatory use cases. 

True multi-tenancy with complete isolation of analytics data between clients or departments, maintaining information silos within capital markets firms, whilst also providing service providers with the level of client segregation they have long desired.

Rich, fully featured collections of dashboards can be provided on both a per-client and shared basis, allowing users to offer their own customers self-service analytics and freeing them to concentrate on adding value.
