OnixS was established in April 2005 based on the premise that there was a requirement gap in the financial trading markets for light-weight and easy to integrate Direct Market Access (DMA) SDK solutions for developers of algorithmic trading strategies and OMS/EMS application frameworks.
The initial OnixS FIX Engine products were light-weight FIX Protocol SDK implementations for C#/.NET, C++ and Java. The requirement gap premise proved to be correct and the OnixS FIX Engines implementations quickly became adopted as cost effective, reliable and well supported implementations.
From 2007 OnixS also developed non-FIX protocol SDKs focused on a number of widely used industry data and order routing protocols. In early 2009 OnixS announced the launch of the OnixS directConnect venue specific product packages. These remained focused on ease of use SDK solutions, but technically focused on specific trading venue/liquidity pool application program interfaces (APIs) rather than the FIX Engine code base/platform orientation. The first OnixS directConnect: CME Market Data Protocol Market Data Handler, CME iLink Order Entry Handler, Drop Copy, Cleared Trades/STP API SDK solutions continued the success of the OnixS DMA SDK offerings and the CME remains a major supported venue for OnixS users.
The OnixS FIX Engine products and the wide range of OnixS directConnect: products are now used by a well established global user base of proprietary trading groups, commodity and energy trading firms, application ISVs, investment banks and exchanges.
