IRESS leverages Equinix for Asian connectivity push
Australian financial technology provider IRESS is using data
centre service provider Equinix to extend the availability of its market data, access,
trading and wealth solutions services in Asia Pacific.
IRESS has chosen to commence operations at the Equinix international business exchange (IBX) data centres in Hong Kong, Singapore and London, which will now complement the existing IRESS deployments in Toronto and Sydney.
By using Equinix’s ecosystem, IRESS can now build service
delivery environments which are less complex and more cost efficient. IRESS also gains
global data centre network connectivity and can now offer localised services to more customers in Asia.
“Building on the success of the recent deployments in Sydney
and other territories, we are confident the breadth and scope of platform
Equinix will enable us to provide our customers with innovative and
sophisticated solutions more efficiently as we grow our business in Asia and
other parts of the world,” said Andrew Walsh, CEO at IRESS.
IRESS supplies share market and wealth management systems in
Australia, Asia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
Solutions include equity and derivative market products for trading, market
data and portfolio management. IRESS delivers global market data, buy-side and
sell-side order management and execution management, FIX-based order routing,
direct exchange connectivity and smart order routing.
