Case Study

Trading Technologies meets global market needs with an agile trading platform

When Trading Technologies developed TT®, an electronic trading platform delivered on a SaaS basis, it sought a global network of colocation data centres to host it. In London, the company opted to colocate the platform at Interxion, where it's been a customer since 2010.

The Challenge

Professional traders of every stripe — proprietary traders, brokers, high-frequency trading firms, money managers and more — use the TT® platform from Trading Technologies to trade futures, options, cryptocurrencies and other asset classes globally. Customers can connect to TT from almost any location and device, enabling them to view, chart and trade on over 40 of the world's largest exchanges with flexibility and ease.

To deliver the experience professional traders around the world expect, the TT® platform needed to be distributed across colocation data centres in 10 major financial cities, and interconnected by a high-speed global mesh network managed by Trading Technologies. The TT® platform needed to have close proximity to essential futures exchanges’ matching engines in every country to ensure the low-latency connectivity which helps to optimise market access and trading speed.

The Solution

By hosting their platform at Interxion’s London campus, Trading Technologies joined an already thriving Financial Services community which offered the ultra-low-latency connectivity and proximity to Exchanges that the platform required. Interxion London’s unique location between the Square Mile and Tech City also means that other London and European markets are easily reachable from the campus – essential for a global platform.

Interxion provides the great service we count on from a business partner. We expect to continue colocating the TT trading platform at Interxion London for the foreseeable future."
