NYSE Technologies today announced a partnership with data center service provider Interxion (INXN) in which the NYSE will house network access points for its Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure (SFTI) trading network in Interxion’s data center in the City of London. NYSE Technologies is the global commercial technology unit of NYSE Euronext (NYX).
New NYSE Technologies services available at Interxion will include the consolidated market data service, Superfeed, which will be an additional point of data collection and dissemination in addition to the existing service at NYSE Euronext’s European Liquidity Centre, a huge new data center in the London suburb of Basildon. In addition, NYSE Technologies will now offer proximity services at Interxion’s City of London data centre for the first time, as part of NYSE Technologies’ strategy to expand its technology offerings into other, existing data centres in key financial centers.
“Interxion have moved from being a trusted vendor to a strategic partner and we are delighted to use their data centre in the City of London to roll out a range of reliable, cost effective and low-latency trading, data and connectivity applications to a wider range of customers,” said Stanley Young, CEO of NYSE Technologies. “The data centre is ideally located to achieve low latency access to a number of other venues and is the closest SFTI access centre to our new European Liquidity Centre in Basildon. This enables us to offer hybrid solutions both within our own facility and also at this prime location for customers wanting to reach other venues.”
“We are very pleased that NYSE Technologies have chosen our data centre as the launch pad for these new services,” said David Ruberg, CEO of Interxion. “This will give both existing and new trading customers within our City of London proximity centre the opportunity to connect with NYSE Technologies’ Risk Management Gateway, Superfeed and proximity services at low latency.”
Superfeed and RMGTM are expected to launch in Interxion’s London data centre in the second quarter of 2011, although Basildon colocation customers are already using the site to connect into the Exchange’s new SFTI Optic service for access to the European Liquidity Centre in Basildon.
