Introducing EP3 – a new, versatile exchange platform by Connamara Systems

EP3 is the next generation of exchange technology from Connamara Systems. EP3 has been designed to be resilient and self-healing. If a matching engine within the exchange fails, order flow will be rebalanced across the remaining matching engines to ensure that exchange is highly available. Furthermore, it can scale on-the-fly to accommodate surges in order volume by adding another matching engine to the exchange.

EP3 is designed to allow an exchange to scale horizontally. That means, that as an exchange grows matching engines can be added to accommodate that growth while maintaining the same performance profile.

EP3 has flexible licensing arrangements so that clients may choose the components they wish to license.

EP3 is a fully functioning exchange platform with integrations for FIX order routing and market data. EP3 APIs allow clients to build custom applications to interact with EP3 foundation data and services.
