KIT Finance Broker Selects DataSpace As Its Primary Data Center Site
KIT Finance Broker, one of the largest Russian broker companies, has successfully completed the testing of its IT systems, deployed at the DataSpace1 data center.
The company became the first Moscow Exchange trading company to follow the exchange to DataSpace1, its new primary data center location.
By deploying IT equipment at the same data center as the Moscow Exchange, KIT Finance Broker will benefit from the minimum latency between its servers and the trading platform of the exchange. This will ensure near instant execution of operations with maximum reliability and efficiency when trading on the Moscow Exchange, significantly contributing to the quality of brokerage services.
DataSpace is offering a dedicated Proximity data hall for Moscow Exchange traders, adjacent to the data hall used by the exchange. This data hall is equipped with cutting edge telecommunications equipment and high-speed high capacity data channels.
"By co-locating our equipment in the same data center as the Moscow Exchange we will be able to significantly decrease any risk of telecommunication outages and minimize trading latency", says Yuri Aleynikov, Head of Infrastructure development and Support at KIT Finance Broker. "We are confident that by partnering with the highly reliable DataSpace1 data center we will be able to improve the availability of our services and their value to our customers."
"Maximum level of reliability and availability is the cornerstone of fault-free processing of transactions", says Sergey Rasskazov, General Director, DataSpace Partners. "DataSpace is offering KIT Finance the highest level of services backed up by a solid service level agreement. We hope that the unparalleled safety and security of our Tier III certified data center, as well as the special rates will attract even more brokers to deploy and test their equipment at DataSpace."
In August 2015, KIT Finance Broker has started its operations at the DataSpace1 data center that now hosts a fully functional trading circuit, in addition to the one at the M1 data center.
The Moscow Exchange infrastructure at DataSpace1 data center will be put into commercial operation in the beginning of 2017.
