Options has expanded its suite of market data feeds to include 10G connectivity to the new Eurex Enhanced Order Book Interface (EOBI) feed.
The new service, designed for latency sensitive market participants, will be available to customers collocated in Equinix FR2 and Europe.
This latest addition to the Options PIPE Velocity platform will mean unified access to EOBI, Eurex trading, as well as Xetra market data and trading services. Additionally, EOBI will further compliment the Options stable of future markets, including CME, LIFFE and ICE.
Customers leveraging Eurex EOBI will do so via the Options PIPE Velocity platform, the IaaS provider’s ultra-low latency market data, connectivity and application hosting service. Options’ PIPE Velocity is one of three service offerings provided via the Options Private Financial Cloud platform, and is a complete electronic trading infrastructure solution, providing ultra-low latency market data, high throughput market connectivity and vendor neutral application hosting as a single, fully managed service for all major markets across North America, Europe and Asia.
Nigel Kneafsey, CEO of Options, says: “At Options, we are continually striving to ensure that our core offering is responsive to ever-changing and expanding client needs. This commitment to maintaining the highest performance infrastructure in our class is underlined by the very fact that the addition of Eurex EOBI to the Options platform is the third major expansion of our connectivity in 2013. In March, we announced more than new 60 markets, including ultra-low latency connectivity in NJ2 and NY4 to Barclays, Citi, Credit Suisse, Currenex and Deutsche Bank. While in August, we added HSBC and AllianceBernstein dark pools as destinations in Europe. We expect 2014 to follow in a similar vein with some exciting announcements due in Q1 next year.”
