Why Chronicle Services?
Traditionally, low-latency trading systems are developed as monolithic applications, which typically have high development efforts, and can make adapting existing applications to changing market demands difficult.
A solution is to use Chronicle Services, an event-driven microservices framework that provides simple, maintainable, testable code and market-leading performance.
Chronicle Services is the perfect starting point to develop tailored solutions. A combination of externalised configuration, powerful APIs combined with a novel approach to testing based on BDD techniques, allows developers to focus on implementing business logic. Development timelines are shortened without sacrificing quality and ROI is apparent much more quickly.
The Chronicle team has helped develop custom microservices for individual firms, such as solutions for pricing, auto hedging, order management, or market connectivity.
There are also ready-made microservices, for example Book Builder and Market Gatekeeper, that can be deployed in conjunction with Chronicle's performance optimised FIX-engine. See Chronicle EFX
