I appreciate your patience, since I am not always so good at articulating my comments and questions. My intuition is that the nitty-gritty details of your back-end processes are important. I don't think that there is a general awareness of what you are doing end-to-end in your architecture, and how it might play into trading. Expressions like "extremely time-sensitive" and "less than a minute" are qualitative; I'm suggesting that you have (or could collect) the data to make them quantitative, and that the information would be beneficial to your community of users. It sounds like you are making moves to get more "application-level performance statistics" out to the masses--good to hear.
There are details you don't want to share, because you value them as intellectual property (and maybe your vendors place restrictions on what you can share, as well). You may over-estimate the value of your infrastructure as IP and under-estimate the value of opening it up. The real value is that you are able to connect to 45,000 users globally 24/7/365 and offer them a free development platform, and entice them to develop algos that you can hopefully market to institutional investors as a portfolio. So, the more those users know, including how your back-end works, the more effectively they should be able to help you build your business. Besides, if you become $10B hedge fund, you'll probably end up scrapping the whole system anyway, as I've understood from folks who seem pretty expert in this area. I don't think your VCs are thinking they'll get their money back by selling off Quantopian as a trading platform, right?
