Proximity Hosting Services
X2M builds bespoke IT Infrastructure solutions which access the financial markets. It enables the trading servers for Proprietary, Algorithmic and Automated Traders to be hosted in close proximity to the execution engines of an exchange or liquidity pool. This allows for optimal low latency and maximum trading efficiency.
X2M provides access to all Market Data and Trading Feeds. We can procure, install and support all aspects of the IT infrastructure; racks, power, connectivity, firewalls, switches and other network equipment up to and including the operating system on the hardware.
X2M consultants work with client to analyze each component of the infrastructure, each stage of the trading path can be measured allowing us to make suggestions for an optimized solution for the Operating system, Computer Hardware, LAN and WAN links to the exchange or liquidity pool. The speed of the data into the hardware can also be measured as well as how long it takes orders to reach the exchange. The latency across the infrastructure can be measured down to the microsecond or even nanosecond when specified and the data volume in parallel. From this granular data X2M can analyze and re-architect the network for optimal latency. These components are then monitored to ensure the best overall execution performance on an ongoing basis.
