Equinix to Exhibit at TradeTech 2009 in Paris
LONDON, UK — 16 April, 2009 — Equinix Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), a provider of global data centre services, has announced that it will be exhibiting at TradeTech 2009. Taking place between 21 - 24 April 2009 at The CNIT Centre, Paris, TradeTech is the annual equities trading and technology event, attended by technology providers and industry players on the buy side, sell side, exchanges and multilateral trading facilities (MTFs). Equinix will be located at stand 85 during the show.
Recent regulatory changes and global economic events have sparked significant changes across the industry, with trading infrastructure, risk and operations becoming key areas for review. As organisations look to maintain the optimum trading environment, it has become essential to develop a scalable trading architecture capable of meeting industry regulations, whilst continuing to support the complex, real-time transaction processing that is necessary in the trading industry.
Set up to serve the specific needs of the financial services market, Equinix Financial eXchange is a community of common interest of capital market participants that locate operations within Equinix data centers to implement a high-performance, low-latency connectivity infrastructure within a neutral environment.
By operating in close proximity, Equinix Financial eXchange enables participants, such as execution venues, buy and sell side firms and market data providers, to expand operations within a scalable environment, open new markets that they were previously challenged to enter, improve reliability and redundancy of operations, and to reduce costs by eliminating the need to link to multiple partners over significant geographic distances. It also enables the fastest possible links to the world's largest trading venues, as well as access to a critical mass of network service providers.
Representatives will be on stand 85 during the event to discuss the Equinix Financial eXchange strategy in Europe, particularly how the company is working with customers such as Chi-X Europe, ICAP and Dow Jones to further reduce latency, improve resilience and provide high quality execution.
“The extreme market turbulence experienced over the last year has driven trading activity to an unprecedented level, often forcing firms to re-evaluate their ability to execute in real-time,” said Petrina Steele, VP Business Development for Equinix in Europe. “TradeTech is a great opportunity for all the key players in this space to come together, and for us to share our experience of working with some of the leading brands in the sector.”
