TIBCO Software Inc. (TIBX), a leader in the application integration and SOA infrastructure market, today announced the latest version of its flagship extreme low-latency messaging platform, TIBCO FTL® 3.1, which introduces the power of in-memory technology to bring new levels of reliability to persistent messaging. Drawing from over two decades of experience in providing communication and messaging solutions to the financial services industry, TIBCO FTL 3.1 provides a powerful messaging platform that delivers unmatched performance to any industry, where time is crucial to remaining competitive. In addition to the financial services industry, TIBCO FTL 3.1 can be leveraged by any industry facing ever-increasing data volumes, including logistics and transportation companies, government, power and utilities companies and the high-tech manufacturing industry, to name a few.

To capitalize on business opportunities or threats that lie within big data, companies must address greater volumes and more varieties of information at higher velocity. TIBCO FTL is optimized to leverage the latest advancements in hardware and networking to handle higher message throughput with lower latency, and a greater number of concurrent connections, than traditional messaging approaches. TIBCO FTL 3.1 includes a new distributed in-memory persistence engine that maximizes performance, with guaranteed message delivery and a messaging throughput of over 850,000 messages per second 1. With this new approach, organizations no longer need to deploy multiple servers or have to deal with the complexity of splitting the traffic between the multiple systems within their application logic. This new, in-memory-based approach broadens the appeal of TIBCO FTL to use cases outside of capital markets.

"TIBCO FTL was designed to address the needs of extreme low latent environments such as financial markets, where trades are increasingly performed by high-performance algorithms and where microseconds make a vast difference in delivering results," said Denny Page, Chief Engineer, TIBCO. "With the introduction of the in-memory persistence engine for guaranteed delivery, TIBCO FTL 3.1 is now also ideally suited to address high performance use cases in any industry where extremely fast environments are required to track billions of data points a day."

Originally launched in November 2010 as the first messaging middleware solution to break the microsecond barrier in end-to-end application latency, TIBCO FTL 3.1 is optimized to leverage the latest advancements like multi-core processors, in-memory architectures and networking technologies like Infiniband and 10 Gigabit Ethernet.
