To facilitate real-time market data and trading offerings

By CBR Staff Writer

Interactive Data, a provider of financial market data, analytics and related offerings, has added global data centre services provider Equinix‘ data centres in Tokyo and London.

The new Tokyo-2 (TY2) and London-4 (LD-4) International Business Exchange (IBX) data centres are integral to Interactive Data’s global expansion programme for its real-time market data and trading offerings.

By expanding the Interactive Data 7ticks low-latency trading infrastructure to new major money centres, clients can gain direct access via a single service provider to regional multi-asset markets, as well as to Interactive Data’s low-latency, consolidated global datafeed, PlusFeedSM.

Interactive Data 7ticks managing director Joe Bigane said Equinix has been their valuable provider over the years and they were excited to be expanding with them in the Tokyo and London markets.

"Equinix’s global platform, rich network density and expertise in the financial services industry helps ease our expansion efforts to offer ultra-low latency access with ongoing technical support and monitoring solutions," Bigane said.

Equinix Global Financial Services general manager John Knuff said their joint financial clients can greatly benefit from the services of Interactive Data to make secure and direct connections to multiple partners simultaneously inside Equinix data centres around the world.
