CIARA Launches the World’s First 2U 2-Node Overclocked High Frequency Server

Montreal, Canada – June 3, 2015 – CIARA, leading provider of enterprise servers and storage, announced today the launch of the ORION HF320D server. The HF320D is the first and world’s fastest overclocked 2U 2-Node High Frequency Trading (HFT) server. Boasting two independent Intel processors with performance up to 4.5GHz on 8 cores in a 2U rackmount chassis, the ORION HF320D server officially raises the bar on speed and density for high frequency trading.

“Today’s high frequency trading algorithms and data market analysis require the fastest speed and lowest latency on the largest number of cores. The ORION HF320D packs incredible amounts of power into a very dense packaging. The power combination of the latest generation of Intel processors (Haswell E), together with the CIARA proprietary half-width motherboard design, unlocks a vast array of new opportunities for performance and low latency,” said Patrick Scateni, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at CIARA. “Our new HFT server was designed with the input of customer feedback and includes as standard features all of the fastest technologies currently available such as NVME SSD, LSI 3108 hardware RAID onboard, Processor Cache acceleration and the latest technology in liquid cooling from Asetek.”

The ORION HF320D is the first overclocked 2U 2-Node design ever to ship and it delivers significant benefits to performance-hungry and density sensitive customers. Users will appreciate the tool-less design, ease of installation via CIARA’s rapid rail technology, latest generation remote management, Linux or Windows compatibility, a warranty model that is tailored for customers in the financial sector with available 24×7 support after trading hours and during weekends, “rack and stack” engineering and worldwide logistics services for rapid rollout of multi-site solutions.

“As the fastest HFT server offered to date, we knew we needed an outstanding custom chassis, motherboard and cooling solution for the ORION HF320D. The ORION HF320D embodies the efficient performance, reliability and serviceability we were seeking”, added Scateni.

All ORION HF servers come with a 1 to 3 year international warranty and are currently available through CIARA or one of its authorized resellers. The ORION HF 320, 320D and 620 will be on display at the Chicago Trading Show, Navy Pier, 600 East Grand Avenue, Chicago IL 60611, booth 212.
