Trading Technologies has extended access to its futures trading platform in Europe through a London-based data centre connection.
The platform has been connected via Interxion’s data centre and provides co-located access to the London Metal Exchange, ICE Futures Europe and Euronext, with plans to add Nasdaq Nordic Derivatives in the near future.
London will serve as a regional backup for services hosted at Trading Technologies’ Frankfurt data centre and users will benefit from low-latency connectivity between the European data centres.
Mike Mayhew, CIO at Trading Technologies, explained the additional London data centre is “critical to our long-term resilience and performance objectives for the Trading Technologies platform.”
He added: “users will see a significant performance improvement when accessing regional markets through the London environment and ecosystem partners can take advantage of lower-cost access.”
In addition to London, the company is planning to open data centres in Hong Kong and Tokyo later this year to enhance its global infrastructure in the Asia-Pacific.
