Fastest Platform

A commonly asked question is which FairCom Server platform offers the fastest response times. The performance of the FairCom Server is largely dependent on the host hardware and the communication protocol. The faster the CPU and disk I/O subsystem, the faster the FairCom Server responds. The internal performance differences for the FairCom Server across platforms are negligible.

Base the decision for which hardware platform to choose for the FairCom Server on the optimum hardware specifications using the following order of priority:

  1. Fastest Disk I/O Subsystem
  2. Fastest CPU
  3. Fastest and most supported RAM
