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."
Savvis Markets Infrastructure allows financial services companies across the
globe to customize IT and connectivity solutions to fit their needs, including
access to more than 200 exchange and liquidity venue feeds. Visit
