Blackcore by Exacta – The first 6 years…

Jul, 2015

The very beginning…

Blackcore by Exacta was founded in 2015 by CEO Nick Rogers. At the time we were working with one of the worlds’ leading financial companies, who approached us to see if we could build them an overclocked server.

'Launching a new brand was new and exciting for Exacta Technologies. It felt like a new beginning, as we entered the world of financial trading.'

Blackcore Launches in the UK

We immediately began researching HFT servers, meeting with our partners, and designing prototype systems. After vigorous testing, we sold the first Gen 1 system in December 2015. In early 2016 we were building 2U units and shipping them to new clients. By late 2018 our systems were in every one of the top 25 trading centres across the world.

'After months of hard research, development and testing, we shipped our first system.'

The Launch of Generation 2

As new technology emerged, we continually evolved the Blackcore systems to make sure that both our performance and our reliability stayed ahead of the market. Then we spent over a year developing and testing an entirely new system architecture with different components and created a new liquid cooling system for our overclocked HFT servers. We found that we could not only build systems with faster clock speed and higher performance but with our unique cooling assemblies we could manage temperatures more effectively and produce system reliability beyond anything we could have ever imagined. Introducing Blackcore Gen 2.

‘It took us 4 years to create Gen 2, the system that changed everything.’

We Moved to a New Building

In March 2020 we moved our business to a state-of-the-art production facility in Bristol, UK. This move has transformed the Exacta Technologies Group, as we now operate out of a building that has been purpose built for us and our range of systems. In 2020 our team increased by 90%, including new roles in production, support, sales & marketing.

‘Our new production facility is a testament to our hard work and prepares us for our next phase of growth.’

Wall Street Address

By September 2020 enquiries from the US had reached an all-time high and we were then approached by a leading US Channel Manager who loved our products. It was an ideal match and he now runs Blackcore in the US, with an address on Wall Street to further our US presence. This has led to many exciting new opportunities.
