Presentation: Tweet"High Performance Messaging for Web-Based Trading Systems"
Up until recently, the network stack of the legacy web has been unsuitable for "real-time" trading and auction-based applications.
But now we now have WebSocket that allows a persistent connection, traverses network intermediaries, has an encrypted sibling, is legacy-web compatible, uses standard ports 80/443 and allows other traditional application-level protocols to live over the web. And like its name implies, it is stream-based and requires system engineers to build and port well-defined protocols for applications.
This presentation will investigate WebSocket and how trading systems can be designed to leverage this new web protocol for reliability, security and performance for desktop, mobile, datacenter and cloud environments.Download slides
