NYSE Technologies, the commercial arm of stock exchange operator NYSE Euronext, is making its Capital Markets Community Platform available in Europe.
NYSE Euronext developed the Amazon-like cloud service last year. The community cloud platform supports data services provided by the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), such as real-time stock market information from NYSE and the American Stock Exchange (AMEX) and historical data.
It offers on-demand access to the NYSE Technologies portfolio of low-latency services, including Superfeed, Managed Transaction Hub, and the Secure Financial Transactions Infrastructure (SFTI) network.
The European service is being run out of NYSE Euronext’s European Liquidity Centre in Basildon.
“In partnership with EMC and VMware, our cloud-based Capital Markets Community Platform empowers market participants, who are looking to reduce their IT infrastructure costs as well as gain rapid access to global markets and market information," said Dominique Cerutti, president and deputy chief executive officer at NYSE Euronext.
NYSE Technologies' community cloud runs on a 12-core server architecture, using EMC VNX 5500 storage comprising 1Tb of tier 0 solid state disk (SSD) storage and 32Tb of serial attached SCSi (SAS). NYSE uses 58Tb of tier 2 storage. Networking is critical and is built around eight physical networks with virtual LANs, providing 10Gbps into the SFTI.
