905 King Street West enables diversity and low latency options to downtown financial community
Denver, CO – April 2, 2013 – Cologix™, a network neutral interconnection and colocation company, announced today that Omega ATS, a leading Alternative Trading System (ATS) that provides the Canadian marketplace with a fast, low cost, strict price/time priority trading platform, has chosen Cologix’s new 905 King Street West data centre as a strategic site for their customers to directly access their order matching services.
“Cologix’s new facility at 905 King Street will satisfy the most pressing need of the financial community, which is availability of space and power for our growing subscriber demand in downtown Toronto,” stated Omega’s CEO, Brian Crew. “Perhaps more importantly, we have been concerned about the absence of data centre options with true network neutrality, low latency connectivity to the financial infrastructure at 151 Front Street as well as access to network routes to financial hubs that offer diversity from 151 Front Street and the potential for further improvements to latency for the financial community. Cologix’s new facility at 905 King Street addresses each of these elements and we are pleased to be a part of what we believe will be a new era in financial network connectivity in Toronto.”
Through their 905 King Street deployment, Omega ATS gains a strategic presence to onboard new subscribers and vendors for their matching engine within the 20,000 SQF data centre. 905 King Street will serve as a natural extension of 151 Front Street by utilizing a Cologix-controlled diverse fibre ring with better than 0.016 Millisecond latency or as a stand-alone facility where customers have the ability to connect around 151 Front Street. With the upcoming launch of the 905 King Street West facility, Cologix will operate over 50,000 SQF in downtown Toronto, including a significant presence in the primary carrier hotel at 151 Front Street.
“Omega has been a thought leader within Toronto’s financial community highlighting key network and infrastructure requirements to support Toronto’s continued growth as a leading financial centre in North America,” stated Sean Maskell, President, Cologix Canada. “We are gratified that Omega shares our view of the potential of the 905 King Street facility and look forward to continued engagement to best support Omega’s infrastructure and its marketplace participants going forward.”
