SIX Financial Information Expands Hosting Presence with Savvis

Leading financial data provider selects Savvis Markets Infrastructure to 
expand efficiently under growing demand 
ST. LOUIS, Sept. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Savvis, a CenturyLink company (NYSE: CTL) and 
global leader in cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions, and SIX 
Financial Information today announced SIX has expanded its data center 
presence to Chicago to support ongoing demand for its global financial data 
By adding a presence in Chicago, SIX Financial Information gains scalability 
and geographical diversity to its existing footprint in Savvis' Weehawken, 
N.J., data center campus, plus expanded opportunities to deliver low-latency 
network connectivity to businesses colocated in Savvis' data centers. 
"As more and more of our customers use hosted data centers, we have an 
opportunity to reduce their cost of ownership by establishing a presence in 
the same centers," said Barry Raskin, managing director of SIX Financial 
Information. "Cross-connections within the same facility are far less 
expensive than long-haul land lines." 
While SIX Financial Information has operated its own redundant data centers 
for more than 25 years, Raskin said that taking advantage of Savvis' managed 
hosting services helps the company cost effectively address exponentially 
growing data volumes. 
"In addition to reducing data transport costs for our customers, Savvis' Tier 
3+ data center gives us the flexibility to support our growing IT footprint," 
said Wally Beddoe, vice president of operations, SIX Financial Information. 
"The facility's scalable power supply and environmental controls, plus the 
added comfort of physical and logical security that meets our stringent 
corporate standards, helped make it a very easy decision to put critical 
internal and customer systems in Savvis' hands." 
"We are extremely pleased and honored that SIX Financial has decided to 
further extend its use of Savvis Markets Infrastructure by expanding to one of 
our Chicago data centers," said Roji Oommen, managing director, financial 
services, for Savvis. "We look forward to building upon our already successful 
relationship and continuing to provide great service to SIX and its clients."

globe to customize IT and connectivity solutions to fit their needs, including
