Case Study: Small Business Financial Services Company

Introduction

This case study of a small business financial services company is based on a December 2015 survey of Metamako customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“The Metamako device improves latency and is the best implementation of this technology we’ve found.”

Challenges

  • Key driver for purchasing Metamako devices:
    • Lower trading latency
  • Evaluated the following other vendors before purchasing Metamako devices:
    • Exablaze
    • Arista

Use Case

  • Rates the following Metamako capabilities compared to the competition:
    • Layer 1+ features (stats): better
    • Ease of use: significantly better
  • Top use case for implementing Metamako devices:
    • Scalable Broadcast

Results

  • improved their trading hit-rate after deploying Metamako.

Less latency introduced into the feed. Flexibility in configuration options.
