Colocation refers to hosting servers at our high quality data centers that offer an attractive method for traders seeking the fastest, most redundant access to a futures exchange matching engine. Colocation can greatly benefit traders who are running automated trading systems, from greybox to blackbox. Taking advantage of server colocation brings your strategy as close to the exchange matching engine as possible, significantly reducing execution times, as well as the risks of multiple points of failure. With remote access to your colocated server(s), you can also enjoy the freedom to trade quickly and confidently from anywhere around the globe.
For algorithmic traders or high-frequency, low-latency traders, server colocation at one of Advantage Futures' ten highly secure data centers provides our lowest latency exchange connection. Each data center is equipped with multiple, redundant direct exchange connections to provide you with high-performance connectivity and reliability.
All ten data centers are outfitted with state-of-the-art networking equipment that typically operates at less than 20% capacity during peak market conditions. Our infrastructure and network are fast, reliable, redundant and scalable, built to support mission-critical functions and higher than peak demand levels.
For traders looking to take advantage of direct access to the exchanges, Advantage Futures offers a simple step-by-step process to ensure you’re up and trading in no time.
