A high degree of reliability and availability form the basis for smooth trading on Xetra®. The Xetra service offers over 99.98 percent availability – even when operating at peak load. This equates to down time of just two minutes per year. On peak days the system processes more than 136 million transactions and executes over 2.76 million trades.

The technical infrastructure is designed to be fully redundant. Even a highly unlikely complete failure of a data centre or network connection can be absorbed by the Xetra architecture without it affecting the trading participants.
