Building on the continued success of TMX Atrium’s market-leading ultra-low latency connectivity network, this latest Moscow footprint expansion boosts trading opportunities yet further for TMX Atrium’s clients. The new connection offers some of the lowest latency access between Moscow and key European financial centres, including London, Frankfurt and Stockholm.
TMX Atrium has been working in Russia since 2011 and now offers a complete solution, both for international clients looking to access and trade the Russian markets and for Russian clients looking to access other trading venues across Europe.
Guy Willner, CEO of IXcellerate says “We are very pleased to see that such a major player in financial markets infrastructure connectivity recognizes IXcellerate as a key component in the expansion of Moscow as a major financial centre”.
IXcellerate is an unparalleled carrier neutral data centre operator in Moscow, which is comparable to the quality of data centres in America and Western Europe. IXcellerate offers pure-play co-location designed to meet the standards of financial institutions, multinational corporations, international carriers and major content operators.
Opened in 2012, IXcellerate’s Tier3+ Moscow One Data centre is a stand alone data centre located within the MKAD ring road of Moscow, set over a 15,000m² campus. IXcellerate Moscow One provides clients with a bespoke solution aimed towards solving their unique data centre requirements, offering co-location services including private and secure cages, combined with on-hand technical support 24/365. Within our carrier-neutral facility, affordable and resilient connectivity is available in Russia and the entire World. Expansion phases have the potential to increase the co-location floor space to over 5000m², with power feeds planned up to 13.7 MVA.
With backing from the IFC (World Bank) IXcellerate was founded by Guy Willner (co-founder and former CEO of IXEurope, former President Europe for Equinix Inc.), and Cliff Gauntlett (former SVP of Golden Telecom in Russia). See more information www.ixcellerate.com or follow on Twitter @ixcellerate.
