A lot has changed, but many things remain the same. When Exberry first launched, it was considered a game-changer in the capital markets ecosystem. So we sat down with Ronen Nachmias, Co-Founder, and CTO, to dive deep into everything we built at Exberry and why it is so relevant to the ecosystem and climate.
What Is Going on in the Industry, and What Are the Limitations You See?
When we designed Exberry, we always considered two perspectives: a market that requires ultra-low latency and millions of orders per second. The second case of a micro-market requires a fast time to market at a minimal upfront investment. We saw that customers had to choose between two non-optimal options that do not allow scale and will drive recurring investments over time. We wanted to help solve this issue. We wanted a technology that would enable us to scale on demand globally. And as a result, what we end up with is that micro-markets can now scale to become top-tier markets, and top-tier markets can innovate
What Was the Industry Doing in the Past?
Innovative markets must be agile and iterative – start fast and scale fast, and time to market is critical. This purpose leads us to invest efforts to ensure our customers can deal with their business. We make sure we assist them in ramping up by providing the best-of-breed technology required at the heart of every market. We acknowledge cloud technology and SaaS as an accelerator and enablers for innovations
Usually, such markets face the build vs. buy dilemma, and none was effective. Nothing stood in the middle of this spectrum. Up until Exberry was established, the situation was that technology specialized only in specific asset types. It was not agnostic enough to support the required diversity to meet the growing needs.
Furthermore, existing technological solutions are developed by market operator enterprises rather than by technology companies. This creates a conflict of interest between the technology they made in-house to support the primary business and the customer using the technology. Before Exberry, there weren’t any independent technology providers focused on building core technology for exchanges and markets. And building in-house is not easy or cost-effective.
In past years, we have seen cryptocurrency rising in popularity and taking a mainstream role in global economics. Still, I believe it’s only the first sign of something bigger. When Bitcoin came in and started to dominate, it proved the potential of issuing a decentralized token. Crypto changed one fundamental thing: the central control of big institutions over what can be owned and traded.
What Factors Make Exberry’s Solutions So Scalable?
We should consider several factors to scalability from the different aspects of the system; scaling means efficiency in dealing with; geolocations, cloud providers, feature expansion, architecture, high availability, disaster recovery, utilization, performance, continues-delivery, etc.
Breaking down each of these problems into its most minor pieces and finding innovative solutions to solve them separately is how we made the Exberry platform unique and scalable. In addition, we use distributed algorithms to solve complex problems of scale in practical and reliable ways.
We understand that solving these problems is fundamentally teamwork. We work together to innovate on every level and every day. In the end, it’s all a matter of having the right culture that allows the nurturing of technology.
