STAC Lab Network
Customers and vendors who want to test systems that use the latest hardware often face logistical hurdles such as a lack of available data center space, insufficient servers or switches, and delays in ordering and provisioning new equipment.
The STAC Lab Network is a valuable resource for firms that need a faster way to test new products against well-understood, relevant benchmarks. The network consists of STAC’s lab, located in the heart of the New York financial district, and labs at several Innovation Sponsors.
Innovation Sponsors support the STAC Benchmark process by providing resources for trading organizations, the Sponsor’s partners, and STAC to design and optimize solutions, then test them using STAC Test Harnesses. Innovation Sponsors furnish hardware for STAC projects and either fund space and power in the STAC Lab or establish STAC Test Harnesses in their own labs. This encourages the industry to leverage the sponsor’s products for high-performance trading solutions while accelerating the discovery process for end-user firms.
The following firms are currently Innovation Sponsors (listed in the order of their announcement):
