Case Study

Delivering high-volume trade data when every millisecond counts.

Small shops and large institutions around the world depend on Interactive Data’s 7ticks low-latency services to trade better and faster.

“The feeds are a massive dataset that’s almost entirely multicast. It’s literally billions of packets and we can’t lose any of them. We have to deliver all of them in sequence on time, every day, day after day, and millisecond by millisecond.”

Scott Caudell, founder of the 7ticks business and VP of IT infrastructure, Interactive Data

Overview

Interactive Data is a trusted leader in financial information, delivering a comprehensive set of products and services designed to meet the needs of front, middle, and back offices at some of the largest and most well-known institutions around the world.

Business Challenge

7ticks provides access to 450 global data sources via its consolidated feed at each hosting center, and the company is seeing those data feeds double in size every year. Ongoing success depends on having an IT infrastructure that adapts and scales to unforgiving reliability, performance, and transparency requirements.

Business Solution

7ticks deployed a MetaFabric architecture composed of MX80 and MX5 3D Universal Edge Routers, the QFX3600 Switch, EX4550 and EX4200 Ethernet Switches, and SRX3400 Services Gateway. With this infrastructure connecting critical trading applications across eight data centers, 7ticks’ data center switches are optimized to support any switching fabric architecture for any application.

Business Results

With a High-IQ Network from Juniper, 7ticks can scale to meet the massive explosion of data and accelerate the deployment and delivery of critical applications. Having a simple, open, and smart data center infrastructure allows 7ticks to forge ahead with network automation and orchestration tools, delivering greater operational efficiencies and reducing errors.
