SIX Financial Information Expands Asia Pacific Presence With Platform Equinix

Stocks in this article: EQIX

Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that SIX Financial Information, a division of SIX, which includes the leading regulated securities exchange in Europe, has deployed its second Asia Pacific infrastructure node in Japan. This builds on deployments by SIX with Equinix in Singapore and Zurich announced in 2011. The deployment will provide SIX Financial Information access to a vibrant and growing electronic trading community in Tokyo, one of the top sixteen financial markets served by Equinix.

SIX Financial Information, which leads in the area of procuring, refining and distributing international financial information, is deployed in Equinix’s TY3 International Business Exchange ( IBX ®) data center in Tokyo, Japan. TY3 will serve as a key hub for offering SIX Financial Information’s market participants first-rate services to enable execution of complex cross-territory trading strategies.

The participants of SIX Financial Information’s financial community will benefit from Platform Equinix™, which provides them access to a secure, power-dense, high-availability and high-connectivity data center environment that connects an ecosystem of financial services participants, networks, cloud and cloud computing service providers in the Asia-Pacific region.

“With Platform Equinix, we can connect directly to our growing trading ecosystem inside TY3, many of which are customers and partners of SIX. Connectivity costs can also be controlled as demand scales through an extended choice of network providers inside Equinix. We are enthusiastic about extending the successful relationship with Equinix and providing continued value to our customers,” said Alain Delfosse, Managing Director of SIX Financial Information Japan.

“Global financial markets like Tokyo require well-connected data centers to meet the needs of today’s financial services industry. To compete in this complex, real-time transaction environment, financial firms need a secure environment, rich network choices and the ability to connect to multiple partners simultaneously,” said David Wilkinson, senior director of business development at Equinix Asia Pacific. “We are pleased to support SIX Financial Information to operate multi-nationally and service several regions while minimizing latency and operational costs.”
