Designed from the ground up for financial trading applications, the Caplin Platform is massively scalable and provides all the performance, security and reliability that users expect for high-end trading. Twelve years of continuous development have been devoted to ensuring that it provides the same quality of service over the internet as can be achieved over a private line.
In addition to the basic functionality offered by generic streaming platforms, the Caplin Platform has been specifically designed to handle bi-directional real-time price and trading messages. It offers features such as fine-grained adaptive flow control, dynamic list management, real-time permissioning, subject-based routing and continuous latency monitoring.
The Caplin Platform also provides many specific services to support advanced trading functionality in thin-client applications. For example, it offers very fast on-demand dynamic filtering and sorting of long instrument or trade lists, and “paging” (lazy-loading) of the result to the client. This improves the user experience of scrolling through thousands of rows of real-time data by not incurring the crippling overhead of sending data that is not in view.
