ST. LOUIS – 28 October 2019 – Exegy Inc. today announced a new point-of-presence (POP) to provide normalized CME market data via its DataPort service in the Cermak, Illinois data center. Exegy’s DataPortSM offers a-la-carte connections to market data feeds processed by hardware-accelerated appliances in global co-location data centers including Secaucus, New Jersey; Hong Kong; London; and Frankfurt. The POP adds futures to existing equities and options offerings.
Exegy® provides comprehensive managed services including continuous monitoring, change management, and an on-demand service desk. Customers connect to the DataPort service via RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) or TCP/IP via a local network cross-connect.
“This expansion of feeds delivers incredible value to firms. With a simple cross-connect, DataPort delivers a direct feed experience at a consolidated feed price point and enables trading strategies to be deployed at a fraction of the cost to build the infrastructure themselves,” said Robert Anderson, Director of Sales for Hosted and Data Solutions.
Proprietary traders are moving to the derivatives markets to manage risk and capitalize on increasing opportunities. With its range of global products, the CME is strategically positioned to deliver innovation and growth to meet these demands. Exegy’s launch of DataPort for CME responds to leading firm’s demand for a fast, turnkey solution to their futures market data needs. “DataPort hits the mark with normalized, bundled feed access; equipment hosting; and the best managed services team in the business,” adds Anderson.
