Considering the upcoming expansion of our tradable markets we want to make sure that our platform keeps as responsive as usual. Therefore we moved our trading platform to a brand new dedicated server. Moving smoothly to a another hardware means a lot of planning and we are quite happy with the outcome: Our platform had only a downtime of about 30 minutes on Sunday, when all markets were closed.
Some hardware specifications of our new system:
- AMD Octa-Core 8x 2.3 GHz
- RAID 2, 2x 1000 GB Enterprise HDD
- 32 GB DDR3 RAM
- Direct connection to the 170 Gigabit/s datacenter-backbone
The new hardware will be able to handle at least 500 concurrent traders without any performance issues.
