ST. LOUIS, July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Savvis, Inc.

TradeStation is an electronic trading platform that offers state-of-the-art electronic order placement and execution and enables clients to scan the markets and design, test, optimize, monitor and automate their own custom equities, options, futures and foreign exchange trading strategies.

"Low latency and reliable access to real-time market data is paramount in ensuring that our clients can best leverage the market-leading trading solutions we offer," said Enrique Pizzi, chief information officer for TradeStation. "Colocating in Savvis' NJ2 data center complex in Weehawken, N.J., provides us a quality solution to connect directly into a rich trading ecosystem of exchanges and other electronic market centers. We're also pleased to have the opportunity in the future to leverage Savvis' global reach of data centers and network connectivity to expand into additional markets in Europe and Asia, should we decide to do so."

A number of the world's leading liquidity venues -- including traditional equities and derivatives exchanges, alternative trading venues such as dark pools and crossing networks, foreign exchange and fixed-income electronic communication networks -- already trust Savvis to host their trading systems and matching infrastructure.

"We are extremely pleased and honored that TradeStation is extending the existing successful relationship we have built up over the course of the last seven years," said Varghese Thomas, global head of financial services for Savvis.

On June 14, Savvis announced the launch of Savvis Markets Infrastructure, which allows financial services companies to customize IT and connectivity solutions to fit their needs. Leading financial services organizations across the globe rely on Savvis as the foundation for their trading and IT solutions. Savvis' global footprint of 32 data centers and ultra-low latency and resilient network connectivity -- the core capabilities of Savvis Markets Infrastructure -- underpin these solutions, reinforced by a depth of experience in supporting the financial markets.
