Equinix (Nasdaq:EQIX), a provider of global data center services, and Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM), Japan's largest commodity futures exchange, today announced that Equinix will offer high performance colocation and low-latency connectivity solutions to TOCOM market participants through Equinix's two Tokyo International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers.

TOCOM market participants will be able to colocate their electronic trading data infrastructure in close proximity to the vibrant financial community within Equinix's network-neutral centers.

Equinix's TY1 and TY2 IBX centers, located in Heiwajima and Shinagawa respectively, offer premium data center infrastructure for achieving the security and resilience demanded by high-availability execution venues. Within both centers, TOCOM will have a direct connection to Equinix Financial eXchange service's established community of execution venues, buy and sell side firms, market data providers and technology utilities, that have located at Equinix's high performance data centers to access the widest choice of low-latency networks and to directly exchange data with strategic partners and customers in close proximity. The high quality, advanced design of the TY1 and TY2 centers offers financial customers a full range of scalable services, including colocation, interconnection, support and monitoring.

"We are delighted to welcome Equinix as one of TOCOM's preferred colocation providers," said Masaaki Nangaku, president and CEO of TOCOM.
