TMX Atrium, provider of smarter infrastructure solutions for the financial community, has further refined its access options into the Equinix FR2 International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centre in Frankfurt.
TMX Atrium is an existing infrastructure provider in multiple Equinix data centres across North America and Europe. TMX Atrium’s recent investment now supports access for ultra-low latency customers and also enables a varied and wide range of access options into Moscow from the Equinix FR2 IBX data centre.
TMX Atrium announced its connectivity path from the Equinix FR2 IBX data centre to Moscow M1, a third party multi-tenanted hosting facility, earlier this year due to the increasing interest in opportunities between the Frankfurt and Russian markets. TMX Atrium also delivers multiple venue and market data access from all of the major European financial liquidity centres into the Equinix FR2 data centre. Providing access options products that enable cost-effective access into and out of FR2 offers clients a choice of how they access the increasingly important liquidity centres of Frankfurt and Moscow.
Emmanuel Carjat, Managing Director, TMX Atrium said, “As firms seek to broaden trading strategies and meet the growing regulatory drive for diversity into and out of key financial centres, offering a wide range of options and access to multiple markets is critical. We can connect clients located in the Equinix FR2 IBX data centre to other key locations such as Moscow, as well as provide quick and easy access into key markets and venues located across North America, Europe and Russia. Equally we can connect clients outside the Equinix FR2 IBX data centre to the venues and services located in FR2.”
Dick Theunissen, CMO, Equinix EMEA added, “We’re delighted that TMX Atrium consistently recognises the benefits of presence within an Equinix data centre. In 2012, TMX Atrium completed their reach into the Equinix NY4 data centre in New York; now TMX Atrium members can expand their reach into the Equinix FR2 IBX facility in Frankfurt. In turn, Equinix clients located in FR2 can easily access the growing TMX Atrium community. TMX Atrium’s access option provides existing and new customers the capability to deliver existing knowledge in the Frankfurt data centre out to other Eastern European markets including Moscow.”
