APX says the move is designed to strengthen the financial services ecosystem in Australia.
“The deployment in Equinix’s Sydney data centre provides us access to a larger electronic trading community,” said David Lawrence, chief operating officer, Asia Pacific Stock Exchange (APX).
“We are now in close proximity to key service providers, network operators and customers, which is critical to our business. Equinix’s strong financial ecosystem, coupled with its track record as a reliable and secure data centre infrastructure provider, makes the company a perfect deployment option for us.”
David Wilkinson, Equinix senior director & Asia-Pacific lead, Global Enterprise & Financial Services, said APX’s deployment in SY1 will provide its customers with “premium services and enable it to take advantage of Equinix’s premium data centre facilities while having access to the wider financial services community”.
“We look forward to further supporting APX as it continues to grow its business and market reach around the world.”
