CNSX Markets Deploys Point of Presence in Equinix TR1 Data Center
Stock exchange simplifies cost and streamlines connectivity via Platform
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. & TORONTO -- June 11, 2013
Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center
company, today announced that CNSX Markets Inc. (CNSX Markets) has deployed a
point of presence (PoP) in Equinix’s TR1 International Business Exchange^™
(IBX^®) data center in Toronto, Canada.
Highlights / Key Facts
*Spurred by requests from customers already located in the Equinix TR1
facility, CNSX Markets expanded its infrastructure into TR1 to streamline
connectivity and reduce costs.
*CNSX Markets, a recognized stock exchange, is the operator of two venues:
the Canadian National Stock Exchange (CNSX) and Pure Trading™. CNSX is a
venue for listing and trading of Canadian public companies, primarily in
their early stage of development. Pure Trading provides a low latency/high
performance continuous auction market system for securities listed on
other Canadian stock exchanges.
*Location directly affects cost trajectories, system performance and a
financial institution’s ability to keep up with fast moving trends. CNSX
Markets’ new PoP in Toronto positions its systems for maximum
connectivity, performance and agility, which lowers the barrier to entry
for dealer participation.
*Equinix’s TR1 IBX data center is located in the preeminent
telecommunications carrier hotel and data center facility in Canada. TR1
provides CNSX Markets with a full array of premium data center and support
services with extensive network choice and the ability to interconnect to
customers and partners across the financial services ecosystem.
*Richard Carleton, CEO, CNSX Markets:
“The Equinix data center in downtown Toronto represents a significant
concentration of equity market liquidity in Canada. As an organization, we
are constantly looking for ways to assist our dealers and other market
participants to reduce costs and network management challenges. By
offering our customers a low cost, high performance access to our services
through the new point of presence at Equinix we can broaden the access and
visibility of our marketplaces.”
*Stewart Orrell, managing director, Global Financial Services, Equinix:
“CNSX’s point of presence will be a valuable addition to our growing
financial ecosystem, offering direct access to an even wider range of
securities and market data available from one location.”
