Nyse Euronext (NYX) today announced that with the migration of Nyse Liffe, it has completed the migration of its markets to its European data center in Basildon, Essex.
The move means that the matching engines for all of NYSE Euronext's markets in Europe are now consolidated in a state-of-the-art data center in Basildon, thirty miles east of London.
"We are very pleased to finish the migration of our European markets to our new state-of-the-art data center in Basildon," said Dominique Cerutti, President and Deputy CEO, NYSE Euronext. "The data centers in Basildon, UK and Mahwah, US, are the center-piece of our vision for the future of global markets. They offer our customers a unique combination of high-performance market access, financial technology solutions and market data services and show how we plan to innovate capital markets and empower traders worldwide."
NYSE Euronext's markets in the US continue to migrate to the new data center in Mahwah, New Jersey. Operations for the NYSE and NYSE Amex have already migrated successfully and NYSE Arca equities and both of NYSE Euronext's U.S. options exchanges, NYSE Arca and NYSE Amex options, are due to complete their transfer in the first quarter of 2011.
The roll-out of the company's Universal Trading Platform will also be completed next year.
