To meet the latency needs of many of today’s trading strategies, reducing the distance that data travels is critical. But beyond latency, the operational benefits of a solution which can minimize communications costs while reducing failure points are equally compelling. It is no surprise that the financial industry is rapidly turning towards exchange co-location for trading solutions.
At ACTIV, we operate shared datacenter infrastructures within the smartest co-location facilities in the world-from Tokyo to Chicago, New York to London, Frankfurt to Toronto. The list of ACTIV's geographic coverage is constantly expanding, so be sure to check with the online map for the most recent centers.
As a value added service to our market data clients, we can also share our racks and network infrastructure to host client application servers. Co-locating with ACTIV has many benefits including reduced communication fees, reduced points of failure, and single vendor relationship. Additionally, ACTIV's operations staff offers no-nonsense and responsive service.
In ACTIV's datacenters you'll find mission critical applications from all types of firms, including prop trading shops, hedge funds, dark pools, and even global banks. Where your firm requires more robust hosting and connectivity, ACTIV also works with managed hosting providers or we can put you in touch with the same datacenter vendors we use such as Equinix, KVH, NTT and Telx.
