Voltaire’s Vantage 6024, is a low-latency, high-performance layer 2/3 top-of-rack switch optimized for next generation and virtualized data centers and cloud computing environments. The 6024 is part of the industry’s first turnkey 10 GbE switching and software solution for low latency trading networks, which includes Voltaire’s VMA software that is designed to improve performance of high-frequency trading and other multi-cast applications, further reducing networking latency, and increasing application throughput per server. Voltaire’s approach is focused on software that reduces application latency even more than what can be achieved in hardware, making it suitable for co-located low latency trading and smaller high-frequency trading environments where one rack handles the full trading operations.
