Telehouse America is seeking to leverage some of its data center real estate to gain a piece of the growing market for colocation space to support high-frequency trading. The company said today that it has colo space and power available in its New York data center facilities at 25 Broadway and 7 Teleport in Staten Island for clients seeking low-latency connectivity.
“We’ve realized that 25 Broadway offers some of the lowest-latency connections to these exchanges, being only two blocks south of Wall Street, and more importantly, the NYSE itself,” said Vincent Corley, Marketing Manager for Telehouse America. “As a carrier-neutral colo provider, we offer the customer access to their choice of several connectivity partners, who specialize in supporting low-latency connections to the largest financial exchanges.”
Telehouse’s 25 Broadway facility is located in the Cunard Building in lower Manhattan, directly across the street from the Wall Street Bull statue, and offers 85,000 square feet of colocation space on the building’s fifth and sixth floors.
25 Broadway is also home to the New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX), Telehouse estimates that the NYIIX is the busiest public Internet exchange point in the city. The NYIIX offers fast fiber connectivity to the New York market’s other major carrier hotels, including 60 Hudson Street, 111 Eighth Avenue, 32 Avenue of the Americas, and 165 Halsey Street in Newark, as well as the Telehouse facility at the Teleport Center in Staten Island.
“To complement the Broadway Center, our Teleport Center has been a primary disaster recovery/business continuity facility of financials for over 20 years,” said Corley. “In the past, we have had some of the highest-profile financial organizations as dedicated space clients, occupying as much as 20,000 square feet per customer.”
