Co-Location Services

Deutsche Boerse Group’s co-location service in cooperation with EquinixOverview and price list

In today's highly competitive world of algorithmic trading, it is essential for market participants to host their key trading technology as close as possible to the Exchanges’ matching engines in order to remain competitive. Deutsche Börse Group decided in 2010 on a "strategic partnership" with Equinix.

Deutsche Börse Group itself is one of many customers in the Equinix data center. Equinix generally provides all housing services like rack space, cooling, power supply and smart hands. Housing contracts are concluded between Equinix and the respective customer (e.g. DBG member). Deutsche Börse Group is not involved in the contractual relation between its members and Equinix.

The network design allows for proven maximum availability with no single-point-of-failure. Deutsche Börse Group also provides a well-defined connection alternative that offers the lowest possible latency, namely the Co-lo 2.0 10 Gbit/s connections in Co-location. For connections terminating in the Co-location rooms/modules, Deutsche Börse Group delivers trading/clearing and market data connections up to the customer’s rack (via cross-connects provided by Equinix).

Low Latency Network1

The 10 Gbit/s network in Co-location is latency optimized. In order to allow lowest latencies, transaction and market data services are provided each on separate 10 Gbit/s connections. Furthermore, the latency characteristic is improved by providing Eurex and Xetra services via separate physical connections.

Latency Statistics

Deutsche Börse Group with all its constituents is at the forefront of providing transparency in terms of sharing latency information with exchange participants. Eurex and Xetra latencies of EMDI market data to Deutsche Börse Group Access Points are published in the respective Member Section (broadcast latency report). Other tools offered allow participants to monitor roundtrip times and TCP/IP network latency statistics. These and other services for participants are available as well in the Member Section.
