It's got to work - all the time!
Regulatory authorities want orderly markets. Exchanges should work as expected all the time so that individuals and businesses can undertake their trading activities and have orders and trades processed as expected.
Disruptions to an exchange’s service can: interfere with transactions, slow down business, and potentially give unfair advantage to some parties. People can become frustrated and angry. This, in turn, can lead to loss of confidence in the market. Confidence in the market is of paramount importance to the regulatory authorities.
XStack has been designed from the ground up to deliver the reliablity needed to achieve the expected level of up-time. The techniques used to achieve this level of reliability are discussed at our Motionite website. These same techniques are used for XStack specific components.
Scaling is also critical for reliability. An exchange must always be able to handle its load. XStack has been designed to handle almost any load. As the number of users and transactions increase, extra computing resources can easily be added to ensure peak loads are always handled.
