Options adds new venues and feeds in Europe and the US

RELATED TOPICS​

Options, the private financial cloud provider for the capital markets industry, has further expanded its connectivity to a number of key trading venues, in addition to adding a number of new data feeds to the Options PIPE Platform.

 
These latest additions to the IaaS provider’s offering come as a result of increased client demand.
 
This most recent deployment to the platform will see Options add HSBC and AllianceBernstein dark pools in Europe to its destinations, while the new market data feeds will include CBOE CSM, C2, CSM, BOX, CHX, and Nasdaq’s PHLX.
 
As a result of the CBOE connection, CBSX CSM and CFLEX will now be made available to clients.
 
Furthermore, the IaaS provider has upgraded its ISE connectivity to the recently unveiled “Premium Access” 10 gigabyte service.
 
This is the second major connectivity announcement for Options in 2013. In March, the firm announced it was now providing clients with connectivity to more than 60 markets, including ultra-low latency connectivity in the NJ2 and NY4 data centres to Barclays, Citi, Credit Suisse, Currenex, Deutsche Bank, EBS (ICAP), FXAll, Reuters Dealing, UBS and Hotspot FX (Knight).
 
The new venues and feeds will be deployed as part of Options’ PIPE Velocity services, a key component of the Options’ Private Financial Cloud platform. PIPE Velocity is a low latency trading, FIX connectivity, market data and computing infrastructure, providing clients with lowest latency and highest capacity direct market access both locally and in key trading centres around the world
 
“Today’s announcement is another noteworthy step forward for the Options PIPE Platform and the Velocity product offering, and is a significant follow-up to the sizeable connectivity upgrade in the early part of 2013,” says Options senior vice president Ken Barnes. “At Options we pride ourselves on an ability to be responsive to client needs. The addition of HSBC and AllianceBernstein as new destinations, alongside the many new data feeds is but further proof of this commitment and we will continue to build connectivity in response to ever-changing client demands.”
