How do I build a low latency server?

Creating a low latency server can be imperative for many use cases, gaming servers, high-frequency trading servers, ingress/egress with live streaming platforms, and much more. We realize that everyone’s low latency is also case-by-case. 

At the hardware level, there are several elements that matter. Picking the right CPU, the correct network configuration, and network card as well as the correct network switches are vital for low latency performance. All of these things are something ICC can help you optimize for as they are different on a case-by-case basis. High-Frequency Traders, for example, have a need for tick-to-trade latency to be minimal and we’ve put together our own specification server that addresses this with the latest Intel Alder Lake CPUs. 
VEGA R116i, which has Intel Alder Lake by default. You can see the specifications below:
  • 1U
  • 8-core Intel i9-12900KS
  • Up to 128GB DDR4
  • Up to 2x 2.5″ SSD
  • PCI-e 1x 16 or 2x 8
  • Redundant 600W PSU
Sometimes improving latency comes at the network or data center level. An example of this is live streaming. If you move your content and distribute it to many data centers around the world with the use of a CDN, the content will reach the user several times faster than if you use a singular data center. We’re happy to help you through this process too.
