AMSTERDAM, 9th February 2010 – Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, and euNetworks, Europe‟s foremost provider of mission-critical, high-performance data services, today announced a non-exclusive partnership to provide traders with turnkey pan-European colocation and low-latency access to key liquidity venues. Solution delivery will be supported through euNetworks‟ presence in Interxion data centres in France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom and combines Interxion‟s Financial Hub offering for capital markets participants with the euTrade, next-generation pan-European trading solution.
Interxion‟s Financial Hub data centres are ideally located to provide some of the lowest possible latencies of any independent colocation provider to Europe‟s leading liquidity venues, and house a growing and interactive range of trading venues, broker-dealers, proprietary trading firms, hedge funds, and financial service providers. Proximity hosting is supported by guaranteed N+1 power and cooling redundancy, high-density power configurations from 5 kW up to 30 kW, industry-leading service level agreements, „hands & eyes‟ monitoring and 24×7 secure access.
The euNetworks euTrade service provides ultra-high-performance Ethernet-based connectivity between trading venues. Particularly suited for the demands of next-generation trading, it offers bandwidths of up to 40Gbps to European trading venues. Service implementation is high speed, and latency levels are incorporated in an SLA.
“We are pleased to be working with Interxion, further enabling superior service delivery to the European Trading community,” said Brady Rafuse, Chief Executive Officer at euNetworks. “Both firms share a deep understanding of the needs and demands of the capital markets sector, and we believe our joint offering will be of interest to a range of performance-driven traders looking for guaranteed low-latency access to European liquidity.”
“To add value for our growing and interactive community of financial services firms, we collaborate with customers at all levels, and our agreement with euNetworks illustrates the immediate benefits this approach can bring,” said Anthony Foy, Group Managing Director, Interxion.
