"Existing market data installations are extremely hard-pressed to keep up with the explosive growth in trading volumes due to market fragmentation, decimalization and program trading, and itâs getting more critical with every passing day," said Jeff Hudson, VhaYuâs CEO. "Weâve responded by developing the industryâs fastest and easy-to-use solution that leverages all of our technological breakthroughs in our expanding suite of market data solutions."

VhaYu HMDS can be easily upgraded to capture and store real-time data as well.
Easy to install, VhaYu HMDS is preconfigured and set up to run out of the box. Underscoring the commitment to ease of use, VhaYu HMDS includes interfaces to the soon-to-be-announced VhaYu XLStreamâ¢ Microsoft Excel plug-in, MATLAB and S-PLUS. Also included are a full suite of industry-standard interfaces, including Java, C and C++, to name a few. A robust solution, HMDS scales linearly with demand by adding CPU processing capability or storage capacity to support multiple simultaneous users.
"VhaYu HMDS gives financial firms the tremendous competitive advantage they need in deciding how to trade, what to trade and when to trade. By offering a powerful combination of speed and ease of use, running on cost-effective Intel-based platforms, this solution can significantly increase todayâs requisite ROI, " said Tejpal Chadha, VhaYuâs CTO and co-founder.
