LONDON & MOSCOW -- June 20, 2013

IXcellerate, Moscow's premier carrier neutral datacentre and a member of the
International Data Centre Group (IDC-G), has just published a whitepaper
explaining how firms can do much to future-proof their investment in Russia’s
financial trading ecosystem by adopting a strategic approach to datacentre

With the recent changes such as the merger of the two main financial exchanges
(Micex and RTS) to form the Moscow Exchange, Russia’s central financial
marketplace has evolved so rapidly that it is now primed to become a key
international hub. The whitepaper discusses what needs to be understood and
the necessary steps to be taken in order to make the most of any early mover
advantages in this fast developing ecosystem. In addition, various key players
such as URALSIB (Andrew Powell, International DMA Sales), BSO Network
Solutions (Fraser Bell, MD), UBS (Christopher McConville, MD), have
contributed their opinions and experiences while addressing the current state
of Russia’s electronic financial markets, as well as the infrastructure and
connectivity challenges faced in Moscow.

“Finance organisations which are able to anticipate and quickly adapt to this
fast-changing environment will clearly emerge as market leaders, and it is
obvious that demand is growing in Moscow for high-end datacentres to act as a
foundation for this new market. With an experienced management team, multiple
carrier choice and a central location. IXcellerate offers a real solution in
Moscow at the same quality level as high end financial data centres in New
York, Singapore and London,” saidGuy Willner,CEOofIXcellerate.
