“When a trading houses look to replace larger and more expensive bare-metal trading infrastructure with financial cloud computing, they need to ensure that the networking and processing latency is similar or better than their existing deployment. The common network round trip ping test and order time stamp latency must yield impressive results,” according to FCM360’s Pejman, whose article, A Low Latency Financial Cloud that Works for Traders is available at: http://www.fcm360.com/fcm360-articles/a-low-latency-financial-cloud-that-works-for-traders/
