Myricom Introduces DBL for Windows – Provides First Accelerated UDP and TCP Solution for Microsoft Windows High Frequency Trading Environments

Windows users can now take advantage of ease of programming and rapid deployment of HFT applications, while achieving low latency performance previously achievable only on Linux

ARCADIA, Calif.--()--Myricom, Inc., the technology leader in extreme-performance 10-Gigabit Ethernet solutions specialized for vertical markets, today announces DBL™ 2.0 for Windows™ software for its Myri-10G 10-Gigabit Ethernet network adapters. DBL for Windows is the first commercially available solution that accelerates UDP and TCP communication for Windows servers in high frequency trading. DBL for Windows enables low-latency UDP multicast and TCP order execution, all over industry-standard 10-Gigabit Ethernet.

Benefits include:

Low-latency communication for TCP and UDP. DBL 2.0 for Windows has benchmarked application-to-application UDP latency under 3.5 us and TCP latency under 5us.

Transparent acceleration. DBL 2.0 for Windows delivers extreme performance while accelerating existing Windows sockets applications without modification.

Performance is not sacrificed. Software developers in high frequency trading often choose Windows as a development platform due to the ease of programming and rapid deployment for HFT applications. DBL 2.0 for Windows allows end-users to take advantage of powerful development environments but not sacrifice networking performance in production.

Enterprise support

“Windows™ and mixed Windows/Linux environments have become a key emerging trend in the high frequency trading market,” said Nan Boden, Myricom, CEO. “Over the years, Myricom has developed deep and broad expertise in high performance architectures for delivering low latency and bandwidth. We are pleased to offer the first Windows solution for accelerated UDP and TCP in high frequency trading.”

"Much of the HPC (High Performance Computing) technology currently being used by financial traders has been built for scientific computing applications running on Linux,” said Alexander Jeffries, managing director of Stordis – The High Performance Distributor. “Typically networking solutions are tuned for Linux environments and will not deliver anything like the same performance with Windows applications. Myricom is currently the only vendor in the low-latency 10GbE space with such a strong focus on Windows, and this focus translates into unbeatable performance. Any latency sensitive Windows application needs DBL 2.0, otherwise the rest of your network tuning is a waste of time."

DBL 2.0 for Windows is available now. For more information about DBL and other Myricom extreme-performance Ethernet products, please contact
