Is it possible to use multiple 4k monitors with Speedy trading servers? I have been trying to research this but have conflicting information.

I am using Ninja trader. I currently have one 42in 4k monitor running at 3840 x 2160 resolution. I would like to add a second monitor set up vertically to display my DOM and tapes.

Is this possible?

One limitation is your own PC OS and version. For Windows 7 for example you'll need the Enterprise edition or higher to be able to use multiple remote monitors. AFAIK there is no such limit on the latest Mac RDP client.

The max resolution is 4096 x 2048 for Windows 2008 R2 and 8192 x 8192 for 2012 R2, so it's technically possible to use two 4K monitors.
But like I wrote previously if your network latency to the VPS is high things may look sluggish, if there are too much refresh per second. This can be the case if you have a bunch of DOM, so to be tried first.

Right now I have Windows 2008 R2 as the operating system on my Speedy Trading server account. Is that something that could be upgraded to 2012? I am just thinking about this at the moment; it is not vital.

Crap, I've been too talkative!
It won't be an upgrade but a reinstall from scratch, with a different Ninja Machine ID, different IP address, etc.
It will be doable for VPS in NJ end of next week, and in Chicago in about 3 weeks.

I appreciate the info. Like I said I have been "thinking" about it. I could probably achieve the desired result by upgrading my monitor to a 55" 4k and leaving everything alone on your end.

Sam,
Will probably return to use your service this next few days, running Ninja 8. Previously I ran NT7 and was really pleased with your VPS.

What is the time zone when running NT8 on your service? Chicago time?

Would Large VPS 80/month be sufficient for this:
- I am just running one indicator (the zone suite from purefinanicalacademy using a 1 min chart).
- NT8 only
- Backtesting and demo forward testing
- Using a robot from purefinanicalacademy (no financial interest in this vendor)
- Max of 3 instruments
- Across 2 screens basic resolution, nothing too fancy
Thanks
Sienna

By default servers in Chicago are set to Central time, servers in NJ to Eastern time and servers in Europe to Paris/Berlin time. But you change it to the time zone you want, it's up to the end user.

A Large VPS will be more than fine for your needs. You'll be far from Chicago so you may experience some display lag, when you'll move a Windows for example, because of the network latency (around 250 ms from Australia to Chicago).

Remote Solution and Security

I'm curious about remote solutions and security. While I mean in general terms regarding all remote solution providers, I would also like to get Sam's take as his service as appears to be one of the best (if not the best ).

Who else other then the end user has access to the virtual machine and/or its contents and files? How secure are they?

Are data centers that provide hosting for trading servers targets for hackers and are they reinforced against potential digital intruders as a result?

In short, are all the advantages of a remote solution in any way compromised by security issues?

Would be interested to hear what anyone has to say. Thanks!

Only the end user. We ask the user to change his connection password ASAP so there will be no doubts on the fact that we can't log on his machine and read his private data. There is no backdoor, if a user lose his password the only way to reset the password is to boot on a recovery CD. Not a very stealthy method to access the machine, as a reboot is required.
We don't do classical file backups, we only backup the disk image so we can easily restore all the C:\ drive, but restoring individual files (so being able to read/spy them) is tricky. Not impossible but long and painful.

It's not something done on the data center side, most of them are also hosting usual services (web, email, databases, games servers, ...). On data centers directly connected to the exchanges then it's different and things are less open on the infrastructure aspects (firewall, VPNs, IDS/IPS, ...).

I don't think so (I'm talking for Speedy's infrastructure, I can't judge for more classical providers). From what I saw over the years the few compromised VPS's (a couple) were compromised due to unsafe web browsing and/or installing pirated software (we don't have access to each VPS, only the client/user, so we can't check he they are doing silly things). In these cases the data were not stolen but the machines were infected to:
- act as a zombie machine, used to spam clients or generate bitcoins
- the disk was encrypted and the user black-mailed ("give us X bitcoins and we'll decipher your files")
Our Windows images are hardened (I won't go into the details), it helped to have basically no security issues.

I have used speedytradingservers.com for two years now so I should probably share my experience.

Overall, I've had a 100% positive experience with sam and speedytradingservers. The latency to CQG-CME order servers is <1 to 1 ms. Uptime has been 100% during the trading week Sun-Fri.

I have no complaints really. The monthly price starts at $60 so you should already have your trading strategies ready to go before you invest in a quality service like this.

I certainly recommend them to anyone looking for a serious trading VPS right next to the CME.
