With a presence in NY4, SpryWare customers will gain access to a state-of-the-art data center plus direct access to exchanges like the ISE (International Securities Exchange) and the CBOEâs (Chicago Board Options Exchange) new C2 Exchange. With SpryWareâs participation at NY4, they join a growing number of electronic trading firms moving in to Equinix. Some of the others include ConvergExâs Liquidpoint and the Boston Options Exchange.
âProximity to the exchanges is obviously important to us, being a low latency technology provider, and NY4 is perfect for that reasonâ said Dan Schwartz, Director of Operations and Support at SpryWare. âBut the fact that the new Equinix NY4 can accommodate the latest power, cooling and space demands, is key to us. We are currently installing additional servers each month and those are typically based on the newest hardware configurations available on the market. Being in a modern facility is a big helpâ continues Dan Schwartz.
NY4 is Equinixâs largest data center in the US to date which, at full build out will be 340,000 square feet â the size of five football fields. Power operations include a high-performance backup system that provides uninterrupted power in the event of utility power disruption. Security features include interlocking âmantrapâ doors, multiple layers of biometric hand-geometry scanners controlling access, as well as 24-hour security officers and hundreds of surveillance cameras.
