Voltaire, a provider of grid backbone solutions for the data center, has announced that it is working with Tibco, a provider of business integration and process management software, to deliver a high throughput, low latency messaging solution for advanced electronic trading environments.
Tested by Tibco, the optimized configuration consists of Tibco Rendezvous 8.0 software over Voltaire’s Grid Director InfiniBand-based switches and software.

The combination of Voltaire’s InfiniBand-based solutions and Tibco’s messaging software solves many of the problems our financial services customers face with growing market data and trading volumes, and enables them to gain a competitive edge.
