Aiming at renewing its technical infrastructure within the framework of its efforts to become a financial hub, Borsa İstanbul announced the establishment of its Primary Data Center (PDC) in April 2014. PDC offers state-of-the-art technology and a secure infrastructure. Firstly, Borsa İstanbul’s own systems moved to PDC and Borsa İstanbul started to operate from PDC. Further, in order that co-location services can be offered, an area to host market participants’ equipment was allocated within PDC.
With co-location, various market participants including Borsa İstanbul Members, High Frequency Trading (HFT)/Algo traders, Service Providers and Data Vendors may now locate their systems near those of Borsa İstanbul, and thereby have access to Borsa İstanbul at the highest speed and security level. Clients using the service will be able to attain a significant level of efficiency in data center operations thanks to the technical infrastructure offered on redundancy basis.
