Omnesys Technologies, a leading India based provider of multi-asset trading tools and systems and an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) empanelled by DGCX, has co-located its servers within the Exchange's Data Centre in Dubai.
DGCX has offered members and ISVs the benefit of co-locating their hardware within the exchange's data centre since 2009 and is the only exchange in the Middle East to offer such a facility.
The co-location of its servers allows Omnesys to reduce latency and thus offer faster access to the DGCX markets via its multi-asset, multi-venue trading system Omnesys NEST. This will in turn allow DGCX members and their clients to trade faster and more efficiently using NEST.
Eric Hasham, CEO of DGCX said: "Our collaboration with Omnesys supports our strategy to expand the co-location facility and ensure that a wide range of state-of-the-art trading platforms and applications are available to our members. In 2010, Omnesys became the first Indian software vendor to go live on the Exchange using FIX Protocol. The co-location of its servers within our data centre is a very positive move for both the exchange and Omnesys who can now offer faster access to our market."
Omnesys is an empanelled vendor on exchanges throughout India, as well as DGCX. Its trading solution NEST is used by leading brokerage houses both in India and the UAE. A fully integrated online trading system for multi-asset products, NEST provides easy access to trading for clients such as sub-brokers and individual investors.
Shrikant Pandit, Managing Director of Omnesys said: "Apart from reducing latency and increasing the speed in which our customers can trade, our partnership with DGCX also means that we are able to help our customers cut down the time, effort and cost required to set up proprietary infrastructure and commence trading."
