Equinix sponsors Financial Sector Technology conference
Equinix Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the leading global provider of network-neutral datacentres and Internet exchange services, today announced it is a silver sponsor of the Financial Sector Technology (FST) Datacentre Excellence 3 (DCE3) conference at the London Stock Exchange on 4 April 2008.
DCE3 is a one day summit with a number of high-profile speakers that provides a forum for discussion on various topics as the audience strives to create datacentres fit for the twenty-first century, with an emphasis on the use of new technology, legislation, environmental issues, human factors and carbon accounting.
Equinix will showcase its network of global Equinix Financial eXchange communities at the event - which now include Frankfurt, London and Paris in Europe as well as Chicago and New York in the United States.
Equinix Financial eXchange enables next generation financial communities located in interconnected datacentres to interact over ultra low latency connections for the fastest performance on the market. Members interconnect with each other and multiple service providers in order to execute financial transactions with the minimum of latency.
In addition to proximity services that offer direct market access to major trading exchanges, Equinix Financial eXchange communities also provide organisations with the high levels of connectivity they need to access the growing number of multiple trading venues that firms need to connect with to be successful in today's post-MiFID environment.
Launched in 2006, the community now extends to more than 50 members including Yipes, Nico Trading, Merrill Lynch, Fortis and Citibank.
