PrimeXM’s XCore integration with Azul Zing drives cutting-edge connectivity for the global finance industry

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and LONDON, UK — For the past two years Azul Systems, the award-winning leader in Java runtime solutions, and PrimeXM, the award-winning connectivity provider, have been collaborating to further facilitate the low latency nature of PrimeXM’s proprietary order routing service, the XCore.

Zing is a unique Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that has been deployed extensively throughout the financial sector industry. One advantage of Zing is its ability to eliminate virtually all of the performance artifacts of legacy Java runtimes, enabling companies like PrimeXM to deliver consistently low latencies for their globally-distributed customer base.

Since its inception in 2010, PrimeXM has been dedicated to developing technology that creates high-performant, low latency and reliable trading environments. One of the key features of PrimeXM’s solutions is that they facilitate ultra-low latency processing of financial transactions and as such, the deployment of Azul Zing fully reflects the company’s commitment to choosing technology partners that support the high performance demands of the XCore.

PrimeXM CEO, Cristian Vlasceanu, observes that the partnership between the two companies has greatly benefitted PrimeXM clients: “Using Azul’s Zing JVM as a technology foundation has allowed us to deliver consistent ultra-low latency performance on the XCore, our multi-tiered aggregation and execution engine”.

“Predictable, consistent low-latency Java performance is the hallmark of Zing,” said Scott Sellers, Azul Systems president and CEO. “We’re honored to be integrated in PrimeXM’s XCore infrastructure and help them achieve their goals of the industry’s most reliable, stable and high performance connectivity solution.”

“Our collaboration with Azul these past few years has been more than successful,” said George Swann, PrimeXM Global Head of Networks. “Our collective know-how and expertise have led to significant improvements for both PrimeXM and Azul. With Azul’s Zing we have noted a significant improvement in the performance of our system, while our collaboration has also allowed Azul to continuously optimise the low latency performance of their Zing JVM.”
