Apcela Launches UltraFast Market Data for the Cloud

Apcela – Chicago, IL – Apcela, the high-performance application delivery company,
announces the availability of UltraFast™ Market Data for the Cloud.  Leveraging Apcela’s Alpha
Platform™, firms moving front or back office infrastructure to the cloud now have an
institutional grade source of accelerated, real-time market data in native format, from top
exchanges such as CME, Nasdaq, and NYSE. The market feeds are available for integration with
a firm’s cloud instances in virtually any region or availability zone globally across leading
Infrastructure as a Service platforms, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google
Cloud, and a host of others.

“We’ve directly connected our award-winning low-latency Alpha Platform to key cloud data
centers globally, providing a step function improvement over market data delivery to the cloud
via the public Internet, where the data quality is often inconsistent,” noted Brian Heacox,
Apcela’s Head of Products. “With a history of delivering first-to-market technologies that
enable competitive advantages in speed, performance, and cost, we’ve already seen strong
uptake on this solution – from one of the fastest growing technology-driven retail brokerages,
to one of the largest financial news and information companies in the world.”

Apcela’s UltraFast Market Data for the Cloud offering includes:

An architecture built to support front office and back office trading operations, fintech
applications, and financial news distribution services;

Transmission of full-depth, native format, event and consolidated feeds, including
equities, options, futures, fixed income and FX asset classes;

Support of greater message volumes and more depth and breadth of coverage, with
access to over 100 feeds;

Low-latency delivery optimized over a global fault-tolerant, mesh network;

Conversion of native multicast feeds to unicast for support in any cloud environment;

The flexibility to normalize data at wire speed using feed handlers or ticker plants that
are running within the virtualized environment or hosted at the cloud gateway.

Apcela executives and team members are on hand at the 32nd Annual FIA Future and Options
Expo (EXPO) in Chicago on October 19-20 to discuss migrating front and back office financial
applications to the cloud without missing a beat. Stop by Apcela Booth # 317 in the Green Hall
