The only way they can come up with 5k a month figure is by having a direct unfiltered feed from the exchange, like this.

LOL $5-10k / month!!

...
A strategy which can take advantage of those extra 10-15ms would be extremely complex and likely require special low latency hardware too (ie FPGA implementations).

...

Exactly! Why anyone using Windows gets worried about sub-second execcution is beyond me (sub-second data yes, but sub-second execution?). To do it right the FPGA is talking FIX, not your OS. There is math somewhere that can relate ATR, execution cost, CAPEX, and OPEX and present the brick wall in timing granularity where the payoff simply isn't there any more. Heck, light is stuck at 186,000 miles per second or so. It has been for some time.

I guess its become harder for the big B/Ds to front run, sorry, manage their clients order flow as efficiently as they have in the past .

Un saludo,

Guys. I use Triple8 - Virtual Servers (VPS), Application Hosting, Colocation, FileMaker Hosting, Rackspace, Remote Backup, 10Gbps Bandwidth and they offer VPS ON windows XP/2003 from $59 to $99/mo depending on CPU, RAM usage. their service is great and have used for 6 mos.

they run anti virus and monitor VPS. A basic VPS of $59/mo is good enough to run NT with backtest/strategies etc

If you aren't backtesting, then probably 1GB is plenty, in fact you could probably do with 512MB if you use either Windows XP or Windows 7 (not Vista).

Win 2003

Thank you Mike, but the "traders workstation" of cns are only W2k servers, so I was looking for a real experience on it...

Un saludo,

Pablo

512MB is probably ok, but to be safe do 1GB. This is if no backtesting. I have six charts up right now for about 14 days straight or so and NT is using only 277MB of memory.

Win2k is not an ideal host because of all the extra server related services. I would find a different VPS that lets you do your own host, and choose either XP or Windows 7.

Triple8.net service is great in chat, email/ticket service. mostly same day response. I have used them for some time.
as Mike says, 512gb RAM might be enough, but I use 1 gb to do a lot of backtesting/optimise which likes more RAM
