Equinix Trading Servers
Global Forex Trading Just Got Faster.
An Evolution in Forex Trading
Global electronic financial markets are becoming increasingly competitive. In such an environment, electronic trading systems and strategies are only as good as the infrastructure upon which they execute.
In forex, time is money and milliseconds matter.
As a leader in this technology 'arms race', Pepperstone has partnered with NASDAQ listed firm - Equinix - to create state of the art Forex trading infrastructure located just 11 miles from Wall Street in New York.
Introducing the Equinix New York (NY4) Facility
Within Equinix's NY4 center, Pepperstone participates in the Equinix Financial eXchange, a state-of-the-art network of execution venues, buy and sell side firms, and bank trading servers that are located at Equinix's high-performance data centers. The Equinix Financial eXchange provides Pepperstone with access to the widest choice of low-latency networks, and the ability to directly exchange data with strategic partners and customers in close proximity.
Optical Fibre Cross-Connection
Pepperstone is directly interlinked via Optical Fibre to Integral and a multitude of different providers in Equinix NY4.
