Delivering high-throughput, low-latency transactions with HP BladeSystem

Powering a global infrastructure for high frequency trading requires architectures that are purpose-built to not only handle the load of financial transactions and orders, but also designed to withstand real-time processing at a blazing, almost-instantaneous rate. While stock, commodities and options trading come to mind, real-time banking and financial services for millions of customers also requires a robust architecture and networks capable of driving high throughput at extremely low latencies.


Delivering those transactions in a real-time, deterministic (i.e., not out-of-order transaction processing) fashion is the job of the HP Ethernet 570 Series of 10GbE adapters. These adaptors, based on Solarflare technology, facilitate extremely low-latency processing for HP ProLiant rack servers.


With Solarflare’s OpenOnload technology on these high-performance adapters, the HP 570 Series provides unmatched latency, the highest message rates possible, and predictable, consistent performance for the most demanding applications. The series is based on industry standards and fully compatible with existing applications and APIs, so accelerated performance is achieved without application modifications, without proprietary or double-ended protocols, and without specialized networks.


Earlier this year, the HP BladeSystem c-Class received the first HP 570 Series adapter in a mezzanine form factor, the HP Ethernet 570M, enabling financial services customers with converged infrastructures to boost their capabilities and handle real-time transactions. Now, customers have their second option with the HP Ethernet 570 FlexibleLOM (FLB) based on the SFC9120 controller.


As with the HP Ethernet 570M Adapter, the new HP 570FLB gives you the latest technology and the flexibility to add and control services with 2-ports of 10Gb Ethernet. The new HP 570FLB and 570M adapters and Solarflare technology deliver a complete, integrated, fully tested, and fully supported solution for financial services application acceleration for HP BladeSystem customers.


Available now, as a fully supported factory installed option on the HP ProLiant BL460c Gen8, customers leverage 10GbE, OpenOnload technology, low-latency, and low-jitter benefits to power-up their financial-workloads infrastructure to the next level.
