Business Continuity Firm Selects Telx FBX Community for Colocation Services in Downtown Chicago to Offer Secure, Direct Access to its Cloud Backup Solution
New York, NY (November 16, 2011) – Telx® today announced that Trading Continuity Services (TCS) has joined the Financial Business Exchange (FBX). As a colocation and InterConnection customer in Telx’s strategically-located data center in downtown Chicago, TCS, a leader in the Data Protection and Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity industry, can now offer Telx’s financial markets customers secure, low latency access to its highly redundant, fully managed Data Protection solutions. The Telx FBX delivers secure, reliable colocation infrastructure in prime locations, enabling ultra-low latency access to an industry-leading ecosystem of market participants such as trading venues, market data providers, buy-side and sell-side firms and network service providers.
“We give trading firms a competitive advantage by delivering an end-to-end, fully managed Data Protection and backup solution that ensures high availability for the best electronic trading experience possible,” said Jim McDonough, Managing Partner at TCS. “Telx’s Chicago data center is one of the most important financial services addresses in the country, and as a member of the Financial Business Exchange, TCS can now offer these customers our 24/7 backup solutions through a simple cross connect.”
Trading firms can save time and expense by connecting to TCS in Telx’s world-class, SSAE 16-compliant data center. Instead of creating a costly and time-consuming in-house business continuity solution, FBX members can quickly and easily connect to TCS using Telx’s Connect Portfolio in any of Telx’s 15 data centers nationwide.
“TCS can leverage our FBX ecosystem of leading financial services customers to explore new business opportunities for their trusted Data Protection and recovery services,” said Michael Cattell, VP of Financial Markets for Telx. “Many financial technology firms like TCS find significant value in our financial markets ecosystem, especially in our recently expanded New York City, New Jersey and Chicago facilities.”
