DealHub (Option Computers Ltd) announced today that its ultra-low latency eFX trading solutions are now available as hosted services at Equinix datacentres in London and New York, co-located with key FX Market participants.
DealHub is already hosting live trading services for a number of customers in London, with further eCommerce solutions due to be launched in New York for both Tier 1 and regional banks in the coming weeks.
"For our customers, speed equals profit and their agility is critical to winning new business," said Peter Kriskinans, CEO, Dealhub. "We can now offer our full suite of ultra-low latency, flexible trading capabilities in a fast-to-market, fully hosted solution that rivals the very best bespoke tier one services. This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for ambitious organisations to level the playing field with their larger competitors - with minimal integration required and no up-front capital cost."
DealHub services are hosted in Equinix's LD4 (London) and NY4 (New York) datacentres, co-located with many of the FX industry's leading participants and execution venues. Direct cross-connects from these participants and venues to DealHub services guarantee the fastest possible pricing and execution. DealHub's dedicated high-speed London to New York connection minimises inter-region latency and committed plans to replicate services in Asia will ensure global, ultra-high speed connectivity for all Dealhub customers.
Reliability and security are key concerns for banks looking at hosted solutions; Dealhub's live-live redundancy in each datacentre and inter-region disaster recovery, coupled with Equinix's best-in-class data centre services, ensure that customers can host their mission-critical trading systems with absolute confidence.
The investment in high performance hosting facilities also enables DealHub to offer its full range of pre and post trade services in a fully managed environment. This includes market leading straight-through-processing and archive services, as well as real-time business intelligence. Given the current focus on preparing for new regulations in 2012, DealHub is seeing strong demand for its regulatory reporting solutions, offerioffering smart routing to CCPs and SDRs via a single connection to the hosted environment.
