As the largest data center provider in the New York metro area, Equinix is home to many exchanges and trading platforms, top market data vendors, a myriad of service providers and hundreds of buy-side and sell-side firms. Equinix's New York-area data centers serve some of the world's largest companies, including high concentrations of financial services companies to provide access to more than 700 businesses and 135 network service providers. With three data centers in Secaucus (NY2, NY4 and NY5) the company provides colocation and low-latency connectivity to DirectEdge, CBOE, ICAP, Knight Capital, ISE and BOX to name a few. These customers understand the power of being part of Equinix's financial services ecosystem in New York and how it can maximize their data center investment.

Just last week, Equinix announced that BATS Global Markets selected its Secaucus data center for BATS and Direct Edge Exchanges, making Equinix its primary data center provider for all of the BATS exchange platforms, including the Direct Edge Exchanges—EDGA and EDGX. BATS and Direct Edge completed their merger Jan. 31. As a result, the Direct Edge Exchanges—EDGA and EDGX—will remain at their current location at Equinix's NY4 data center in Secaucus, N.J., until January 2015, when they will migrate to Equinix's NY5 data center. In the second quarter of 2015, the BATS BZX and BYX Exchanges, and BATS Options, will move to NY5 from their current location of NJ2 in Weehawken, N.J.

In today's highly networked world, financial services companies such as BATS need to position their systems for maximum connectivity, performance and agility in order to keep ahead of fast moving trends. With the global network of Equinix data centers, BATS can achieve proximity hosting requirements while tapping into a financial services ecosystem with all the major market players.

Equinix's John Knuff says magnet customers such as BATS, NYSE and CBOE help to further build out the depth and diversity of its participants, which is critical to the health of the global electronic trading community.  NYSE Technologies moved into Equinix's NY5 data center in Secaucus citing connectivity to Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure® (SFTI®) as a key reason. The company operates the SFTI access center, which offers customers in the facility reduced connectivity costs, enhanced performance and simplified trading architecture. In November NYSE was bought by ICE and it was announced that they will maintain SFTI, but not NYSE Technologies.
