Livecache Enterprise is a feature-rich, customisable real-time cache for market data platforms. Use Livecache to:

Due to the large number of customisable parameters, we prefer to oversee the specification and installation of Livecache Enterprise.
Livecache Enterprise is the complete solution for internal publishing, integration and auditing. Contact us now for full details and arrange a consultation and evaluation.
Livecache Enterprise appears as TREP-RT or MAMA source when it runs. Your applications can publish data to Livecache in real-time (using OMM POST or MAMA publish) and any subscribing applications will receive updates as they occur. As each update is processed, so the cache is persisted to disk in case of failure.
Livecache Enterprise can be configured to subscribe to market data sources (TR Electron, Bloomberg BPIPE, IDC Plusfeed, etc.) as required, so that market data fields can be combined with locally published fields in the same record.
It can also be configured to include a Bloomberg API interface so that data can be shared with Bloomberg users via the Bloomberg Enterprise Platform.
New subscribers will receive an initial image based on the current cache values, and then receive updates as they occur.
Publishers may publish new topics (RICs, in Thomson Reuters parlance) freely and Livecache will create records if they don’t already exist. Similarly, if new fields are published to an existing record, these will be added to the cache and passed to subscribers as required.
Note that Livecache uses an optimised disk handler to ensure very high performance, however if your cache is being updated at a high rate (1000’s of updates per second continuously) then we recommend an SSD-based disk subsystem.
In the case of TREP-RT, Livecache Enterprise supports a full OpenDACS interface, allowing the user to individually permission records or groups of records for subscribe or publish access.
A full audit log is maintained of every update to Livecache Enterprise, including user details, record, fields and values, and timestamps.
