CIARA Breaks New Speed Record with the ORION HF320S-G3 Limited Edition

Montreal, QC – May 17, 2016 – CIARA, a global technology provider that specializes in the design, manufacture, deployment and support of cutting-edge servers and storage, announces that the ORION HF320S-G3 has set a new speed record for High Frequency Trading servers. Using an Intel® Haswell-E 8-core processor together with an accelerated cache, the 2U form factor ORION HF320S-G3 has attained a record breaking speed of 4.7GHz on 8 cores.

“CIARA has spent several years designing, developing and optimizing the fastest overclocking technology available for financial services. Customer collaboration with CIARA’s dedicated acceleration and optimization team has once again raised the bar in performance with the launch of our Limited Edition ORION HF320S-G3” said Darcy Letemplier, Vice President of Engineering at CIARA. “This product will enable financial services customers to address the most demanding workloads in algorithmic trading”, added Mr. Letemplier.

The ORION HF320S-G3 is built for electronic trading applications which require high speed processors, accelerated cache and extremely low latency. The increased speed of the ORION HF320S-G3 will both accelerate the processing time of transactions and lower the tick to trade latency for these applications.

“Trading operations must seize all opportunities to reduce processing times, even if the gain is merely a fraction of a millisecond. The latency between digesting the market feed and placing the order is the key factor in determining who will achieve the greatest return. As the ones who move the fastest are the ones who profit the most, the ORION HF320S-G3 is the perfect tool to maximize the return for our financial services customers” said Patrick Scateni, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at CIARA.
