We do a lot of pricing data through here, market data from the street that we feed onto the event bus and distribute out using permissioning and controls. Some of that external data has to have controls on top of it so we can give access to it. We also have internal pricing information that we generate ourselves and distribute out. So we have both server-based clients connecting and end-user clients from PCs. We have about 25,000 to 30,000 connections to the different appliances globally, from either servers or end-users, including desktop applications or a back-end trading service. These two use cases are direct messaging; fire-and-forget types of scenarios.
We also have what we call post-trade information, which is the guaranteed messaging piece for us. Once we book a trade, for example, that data, obviously, cannot be lost. It's a regulatory obligation to record that information, send it back out to the street, report it to regulators, etc. Those messages are all guaranteed.
We also have app-to-app messaging where, within an application team, they want to be able to send messages from the application servers, sharing data within their application stack.
Those are the four big use cases that make up a large majority of the data.
It's all on-prem across physical appliances. We have some that live in our DMZ, so external clients can connect to those. But the majority, 95 percent of the stuff, is on-prem and for internal clients. It's deployed across Sydney, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, London, New York, and Toronto, all connected together. We are currently working on the cloud setup to connect on-prem with cloud based virtual message routers all connected together.
