Businesses know that latency impacts their bottom line, but it’s not always clear where the issue lies. In this short video, we illustrate how Clockwork helps identify and measure true one-way delay so teams can diagnose and resolve issues quicker.
In modern data infrastructure, it’s both cost-effective and resource-effective to move at least some workflows to the cloud. But from a time synchronization perspective, it’s more complicated because on-prem data centers typically use different time protocols to synchronize clocks than cloud-based environments.
Financial services firms in Europe and the United States are subject to clock synchronization regulations under ESMA’s MiFID II and FINRA’s CAT standards, meaning all business clocks used to record the date and time of any reportable event must be synchronized within a specified timestamp granularity (depending on the type of trading). See how Clockwork makes it easy to fulfill compliance requirements.
Clockwork Systems was founded in 2018 by Stanford University researchers and experienced tech entrepreneurs, based on protocols developed at Stanford. Here’s a synopsis of the original paper and presentation that inspired the company.
It can be easy to forget or take for granted, but the millions of computer servers and billions of connected devices we depend on for so many of our routine activities rely on precise timing and onboard clocks. These onboard clocks have to synchronize with a reference clock over a network in order to help the apps we regularly use to function properly, without hiccups. The need for time synchronization is a decades-old challenge that predates the Internet and has a long history in fields like radio broadcasting and telecommunications. But the advent of distributed computing and networking and a […]
