Euronext.liffe chooses Interxion for European colocation services

30 July 2003  |  3707 views  |  0 Euronext.liffe chooses Interxion for European colocation services

Euronext.liffe has established operations with Interxion's carrier-neutral data centres in Europe to host and manage its mission critical network infrastructure.

The exchange says it chose to colocate its network infrastructure at Interxion's sites because, in the event of a network connection failing, an alternative carrier will be available to seamlessly takeover the processing.

Alan Mycroft, director, Euronext.liffe Integration, says: "Our business is based on providing real-time financial information across 26 countries, so it's absolutely vital that our network infrastructure is up and running all of the time.

"This means we must have instant access to a backup network in the event of failure in our primary carrier's network."

Interxion also monitors and manages the environment and infrastructure for Euronext.liffe's installed network equipment on a 24/7 basis.

Netherlands-based Interxion has over 20 carrier-neutral data centres in 11 countries across Europe and says Euronext.Liffe is the latest in a line of financial sector firms choosing to colocate networking equipment at its locations. Other customers include GL Trade.

Euronext.liffe recently said it was using networking and storage technologies from Cisco and Hitachi Data Systems and project procurement services from BT, to connect data centres in London and Paris for business continuity purposes.
