November 20, 2008

New York, New York — FIX Flyer, an innovator in trading solutions for electronic trading, that it has released for general production version 3.0 of their high performing FIX engine. Also today, FIX Flyer announces that their High Speed Transformation Engine (HST) for FIX that makes it much easier to manage nuanced differences in counterparty versions of the protocol without sacrificing performance. The solution is a core component of multi-asset, mission critical non-stop electronic trading.

The HST Engine works with any commercial, open source, or proprietary FIX engine. It also unloads the burden of critical CPU cycles required for typical message transformations handled inside the trading application.

  • Next generation of replication supporting both Async and Sync updates
  • In-process API for embedding the engine into applications to reduce latency and process control
  • Embedded FIX routing based on standard session header tags

  • Lots of performance enhancements for throughput and latency
  • Updated SDK with more documentation, examples for installation, configuration, and solution guidelines
