LONDON, 10th June 2009 - Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, today announced an agreement with 7ticks, the leading provider of high performance trading network solutions, to provide equipment housing and connectivity in the Interxion London City data centre. 7ticks’ presence will leverage Interxion’s high-specification infrastructure and fast-growing capital markets and exchanges community to facilitate ultra-low latency connectivity and networking services for their financial services customers.

7ticks trading clients appreciate the fact that electronic and algorithmic trading has become a world of thousands of moving parts, and typically, the more technically capable a trading firm, the more value they derive from 7ticks’ technological capabilities and insight.

To fully capitalize on opportunities in the world of electronic trading, 7ticks customers have leveraged the benefits of physically locating near financial exchanges, creating drastic reductions in latency between client servers and the exchanges. 7ticks has built proximity POP’s for many leading exchanges, and whenever possible, co-locates in the same building as the exchange presence, running direct cross-connects into the 7ticks network infrastructure.

Interxion’s data centres provide a highly secure physical location with advanced infrastructure for mission-critical applications. High-density power configurations from 5 kW up to 30 kW are available as standard, with industry-leading Quality of Service levels and availability and 24x7 secure access to equipment.

“We aim to provide the lowest latency connections in the industry, and our partnership with Interxion is an important factor in achieving these goals,” said 7ticks Scott Caudell, CTO and Managing Partner. “Interxion’s London facility provides world-class infrastructure, is located inside the City, and already contains a significant number of capital markets participants. In such a dynamic environment, our customers can improve performance, reliability, and cost-effectiveness.”

“7ticks has built an excellent reputation for delivering high performance low latency solutions for its customers, and we are delighted to have them on board,” said Greg McCulloch, Interxion UK MD. “We look forward to building our relationship with them as we realise the full potential of Interxion’s London City data centre as a leading financial hub.”
