Accelerating Fast-track trading system development with Aeron, and Hydra Platform and Adaptive
Aeron is an open-source, low-latency messaging system. At Adaptive we build trading systems for our clients (banks, venues, hedge funds, etc) and we selected Aeron as our standard messaging system. In this paper, we provide an overview of Aeron & Aeron Cluster, and look at some of the projects we have developed using Aeron during the past 3 years. We then provide an overview of Hydra Platform which contains some of the building blocks we produced to complement Aeron and further accelerate the development of systems we build. While we do not go into deep technical details, this document is particularly suited for developers, architects and CTOs.
Adaptive is a software consultancy focused on building bespoke front-office trading systems for our clients. Our development teams build front-to-back solutions such as matching engines, single dealer platforms (banks’ eCommerce platforms), sales-trader workflows and other systems across all asset classes. We use our own accelerators (Hydra Platform) to reduce time to market while delivering fully bespoke systems for our clients.
I am Olivier Deheurles, CTO and co-founder of Adaptive. My background is software engineering, the first 10 years of my career were focused on developing and architecting trading systems. These days I oversee the development of our software accelerators such as Hydra and trading platforms we build on top of Aeron. Most of my time is spent advising our clients during pre-sales and overseeing the delivery of our projects.
