Barchart is a registered market data provider and has provided market data feeds, including real-time, delayed and historical data for over 15 years
. We are an early adopter of Amazon Web Services and cloud-based computing. Barchart began in 1934
with our Commodity Research Bureau (CRB) division.
Barchart OnDemand is built on industry leading technology. Reliability and accuracy
are paramount. With our extensive experience and diverse client base, we know market data and fully understand our clients requirements. We have built Barchart OnDemand to be the most reliable cloud-based market data solution on the market.
With web services, Barchart OnDemand is operating system and programming language independent. Through HTTP we support both GET and POST requests, as well as SOAP. Data can be delivered in multiple formats including XML, JSON and CSV. As a web services based solution, Barchart OnDemand is compatible with any operating system
, such as Windows, Linux, iOS or Android, and any programming language
, such as Java, PHP or ASP.NET.
As a cloud-based solution we provide enterprise-class reliability, unlimited scalability
and a usage-based pricing
model. Through Amazon Web Services we maintain multiple data centers throughout the United States, ensuring optimal reliability and redundancy. In addition, through server virtualization and Amazon's extensive resources, we can scale up our services in a matter of seconds. Our on-demand service pricing is based on usage, meaning you only pay for the amount of data you use.
We source market data directly from the exchanges to ensure the highest quality
and lowest latency
possible. This means that as a direct provider we are not dependent on third-parties for market data. Direct access ensures true independence and eliminates any potential conflicts.
We embrace the cloud but also maintain physical data centers
for specific client needs. Through our Equinix-based facilities we cater to ultra-low latency requirements and provide a true physical back-up. Having both a physical presence and a cloud-based environment gives us the benefit of both models.
