Trading Technologies extends futures trading platform in London

Trading Technologies’ futures platform has been connected to Interxion’s London data centre.

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.
