Equinix (Nasdaq: EQIX), a provider of global data centre services, today announced that Tokyo Financial Exchange (TFX), Japan's largest financial derivatives exchange, has endorsed Equinix's Tokyo International Business Exchange (IBX) data centres as preferred colocation sites for interconnection to TFX.

Equinix's TY1 IBX centre, located in Heiwajima, along with its TY2 center in Shinagawa, offers premium data centre infrastructure and a network-rich ecosystem of leading high-bandwidth carriers, networks and other connectivity providers. This provides an ideal environment for clients and partners seeking high-performance and low-latency access to TFX and its futures and options products.

"I am pleased to welcome Equinix as one of TFX's colocation partners," said Jiro Saito, president and CEO of TFX. "Equinix is well known as operating some of the most reliable and highest quality data centres in the world. We believe that their Tokyo centres will enable us to provide even greater access to our products within a low-latency environment."

"As TFX has grown and expanded its client base, it is seeking to provide greater options for its customers to access its services," said David Wilkinson, Representative Director of Equinix in Japan. "At Equinix's state-of-the-art Tokyo data centres, TFX can more easily expand its regional and international reach by leveraging the base of networks operating within our centres. Equinix has seen a heightened interest in the Tokyo market from our existing base of U.S. and European electronic trading firms, and we look forward to creating a robust, neutral marketplace in Tokyo, just as we have done in Chicago, New York, London and Frankfurt."
