Equinix Chosen by SIX Swiss Exchange to Establish Proximity Services

Equinix has announced that SIX Swiss Exchange will open an access node for its critical trading system infrastructure at Equinix’s recently opened International Business Exchange (IBX) data centre in Zurich, Switzerland (ZH4), allowing financial services firms direct access to the Swiss Securities Exchange. The strategic city centre location of Equinix’s ZH4 IBX data centre will support proximity co-location to the SIX Swiss Exchange, and will enable Equinix to offer financial market participants low latency solutions to this key trading platform.

In addition to offering proximity data centre services to the SIX Swiss Exchange, SIX Group has also chosen Equinix for its experience in building financial communities of execution venues, buy and sell side firms, market data providers and financial networks within its global data centre network.
