Patsystems is pleased to announce that Nihon Unicom Inc., a commodity futures broker in Japan, has launched a new Patsystems offering utilising Patsystems’ Application Service Provider (ASP) facility in Tokyo.
Previously, Nihon Unicom managed its Patsystems environment internally. By moving to Patsystems’ ASP environment, Nihon Unicom no longer needs to manage or invest in a technology infrastructure or technical support resources. With its new ASP offering, Nihon Unicom will continue to utilise Patsystems front-end trading applications, J-Trader and Pro-Mark, along with direct connectivity to the Tokyo Commodities Exchange (TOCOM).
Patsystems launched its enhanced ASP offering in Tokyo in August of 2009. Patsystems’ Tokyo ASP facility offers internet line resiliency, resilient firewalls, networks and servers. The facility contains a link to Patsystems’ London data centre to support XLink connections to and from Japan.
Patsystems unique XLink network enables Patsystems’ customers to leverage one another’s exchange memberships and allows for seamless communication and order routing between any Patsystems’ client site.
Barry White, Regional Director of Asia Pacific, Patsystems, said:
“Patsystems has enjoyed a long and successful partnership with Nihon Unicom. We look forward to continuing this partnership by hosting Unicom’s new ASP environment, which was launched seamlessly and without any disruption of service.”
Mr. Takeuchi, Manager of Information System Department, Nihon Unicom, said:
“It is with great pleasure that we offer this new high-quality service in cooperation with Patsystems. We consider the partnership with Patsystems essential to extending our business in the upcoming 'Exchange Consolidation' era as well as being able to offer a stable system for our customers.”
