Vienna Stock Exchange quadruples speed of data feed

This week, the Vienna Stock Exchange's new market data distribution infrastructure goes live.

Over 270 customers receive stock market data from 11 markets four times faster. The software as well as the hardware and the operating system of the ADH data feed (Alliance Data Highway) were upgraded to the latest technical standards by the IT experts of the Vienna Stock Exchange in close coordination with its customers. This step further increases the stability of the system and lowers the latency once again. The parallel operation, which will run until 3 April, makes it easier for customers to switch. The introduction of a permanent simulation environment as well as a production-like test environment will enable customers to run extensive and complex test scenarios in the future.

"After the renewal of the trading system, the improvement of the data feed is part of a series of investments in our infrastructure. Throughout the entire process, the exchange team has been clearly oriented towards the needs of the customers. This enables us to meet the highest technical and functional requirements for transparent information on securities trading," says Christoph Boschan, CEO of the Vienna Stock Exchange.

The Vienna Stock Exchange distributes real-time data from 11 markets worldwide: Information and prices on securities from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kazakhstan, Croatia, Northern Macedonia, Austria, Serbia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Hungary as well as trading data from the EXAA Energy Exchange Austria. The one-stop-shop solution reduces the customer’s administrative, legal and technical effort in data sourcing to a minimum. More than 16,000 end users from around 60 countries use the Vienna data hub for Central and South-Eastern Europe.
