Euronext have announded that from early 2007, they will offer a cash trading platform capable of handling up to 10 times current volumes at 20 times the speed, early tests of the system have shown.

The upgraded trading platform, which is based on Linux-IBM technology, also meets the highest industry standards in terms of resilience and availability, with a fault-tolerant architecture, redundant processes, and real-time database replication to the disaster recovery site.

Performance testing, which recreated typical and extraordinary market conditions, produced impressive results. The highlights are:

  • An average response time of under 5 milliseconds.
  • The ability to maintain a sustained workload of 25,000 orders per second, with peaks at 50,000 orders per second lasting 5 minutes and 100,000 orders per second during a 10 second period.
  • Over 100 million orders handled and 20 million trades generated in 2 hours.
  • 850,000 trades generated on a single financial instrument, with a peak at 10,000 orders per second.

The new platform’s horizontal scalability means that Euronext will be able to continue to process record-breaking trading volumes.
