NYSE Euronext opens European liquidity data centre

Related Topics

NYSE Euronext’s European liquidity data centre is now open, with the first phase of customers installing equipment in readiness for the anticipated migration of all NYSE European matching engines in the fourth quarter of this year.

The facility will house all of NYSE Euronext’s European markets and also includes a next generation co-location service for trading firms.

The company’s European liquidity data centre will leverage the latest advancements in design and efficiency to create a resilient, high-capacity and low-latency facility.

“We are very excited to welcome the first wave of customers into our new data centre. The facility has been designed from the ground up to facilitate the free flow of global liquidity and enhance our customers’ access to markets,” says Dominique Cerutti, president and deputy chief executive of NYSE Euronext. “As both an innovative technology provider and a global exchange operator, NYSE Euronext is a leader in connecting markets with market participants and a diverse issuer base to create a truly global trading community.”

The initial co-location phase comprises more than 40 high-frequency trading firms scheduled for installation and testing prior to the migration of the main matching engines for the NYSE Euronext, NYSE Liffe, NYSE Arca Europe and Smartpool markets, which is due for completion by the fourth quarter of 2010.

Customer consultations for the second phase will begin in the summer with scheduled installations commencing in November.

The data centres will offer co-location services, robust connectivity, flexible configuration capabilities and ultra-low latency market data managed by NYSE Technologies.

In January NYSE Technologies announced the launch of a US liquidity data centre to be located in Mahwah, New Jersey.

Both centres are designed to maximise trading efficiency and resiliency with less than 50 microseconds of internal latency between customers’ equipment and the markets.
