European equity trading venue Turquoise Trading has selected Atlanta Technology to support its complete corporate network and disaster recovery needs.

Atlanta Technology, the hosted technology specialist, has successfully deployed the corporate network infrastructure for Turquoise Trading, the new European equity trading venue.

Atlanta Technology has implemented a secure hosted virtual server model to manage Turquoise's complete corporate IT needs.

Founded by nine of Europe's largest investment banks, Turquoise launches this month.

In total, Atlanta Technology has deployed 70 PCs with 14 hosted servers, which includes e-mail servers, domain controllers, and a remote FalconStor CDP disaster recovery solution.

The deployment also includes a BlackBerry mobile server to support Turquoise's 30-plus devices, a terminal server, a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server and a CRM server.

Yann L'Huillier, chief technology officer at Turquoise Trading, said, "In our industry, network uptime and data security is critical and, as a result, we partnered with Atlanta Technology to deliver a highly resilient infrastructure that can fully scale as we grow.

"When establishing a corporate network you have two choices to build and maintain your own IT centre and load the organisation with high overheads and capital expenditure, or you can choose a hosted model and work with an IT partner that has the skill to deliver a high quality infrastructure, that meets all the required regulations and is fully maintained."

He said, "By opting for the hosted model, we are able to concentrate on our core trading business needs, whilst Atlanta looks after our overall IT network requirements."
