Avelacom has established a point of presence (PoP) in the new DataSpace data centre in close proximity to the Moscow Exchange (MoEx), allowing the firm to optimise customer access to the exchange’s electronic systems.
DataSpace, Russia’s first Uptime Institute certified Tier III Gold data centre, will begin serving as a primary data centre facility for MoEx from November 2016.
Between now and the end of October, Avelacom, will be helping its clients to move their low latency infrastructure from current data centres to DataSpace.
Avelacom has also optimised its metro area fibre network to shorten route distance from DataSpace to other company’s PoPs.
“Avelacom has always had a significant presence in Moscow with over nine PoPs in the biggest data centres. We understand the importance of DataSpace as a major hub for financial services vertical. Our new PoP allows us to improve latency performance across Europe – Russia – Asia as well as to achieve the highest possible service availability – up to 99.99 per cent. These are the top two factors that capital market players are looking for,” says Aleksey Larichev, managing director of Avelacom.
Sergey Rasskazov, DataSpace president, says: “DataSpace is a home for IT-intensive enterprises, financial institutions, multinationals and global corporations. With Avelacom presence, DataSpace expands on-site telco offering for broker community and tenants, who benefit from excellent connectivity and low latency access to main stock exchanges across the world.”
