Retail Forex broker FxPro has partnered with technology provider Solace Systems, in order to beef up the capacity, performance and robustness of the messaging infrastructure that powers its advanced trading platforms and customer-facing interfaces.
The broker is deploying a combination of Solace Message Router Appliances and Solace Virtual Message Routers to power a set of internal and customer-facing applications, including distribution within data centers, over wide area networks and via web and mobile devices.
The new Solace infrastructure replaces multiple previously used technologies, including ActiveMQ, Kaazing and ZeroMQ. FxPro picked Solace for its unique scale and fault-tolerant features as well as a unified API and administration framework, which will keep the architecture and operation of their system simple even as they grow their business.
Panayiotis Annivas, CIO, FxPro, says,
“Our business is growing rapidly and it is necessary that we continue to offer a world-class trading experience and customer service as we expand our offering to cover more asset classes and geographies. Solace gives us a rock-solid foundation on which we know we can build and grow our business to meet customer demand.”
Craig Betts, CEO, Solace Systems, says,
“It takes an innovative approach and world-class infrastructure to satisfy the trading needs of forex customers in over 150 countries, and FxPro has both. We’re proud that they’ve selected our technology as the framework that ties together their many applications, locations and customer interfaces.”
