We are pleased to announce that we have added another data centre location to our map.
Beeks has collaborated with global data centre provider, Interxion, to take space within its London1 data centre, with Beeks offering compute-on-demand infrastructure and connectivity within this space.
Andrew Fray, Managing Director of Interxion UK, commented, “I am thrilled to welcome Beeks Financial Cloud to our expanding community of interest for financial services in London. As enterprises flex their options for hybrid cloud solutions, Beeks’ expertise in providing compute-on-demand is a tremendous addition to the services available at Interxion.”
This move has largely been driven by the relocation of some liquidity venues, including the London Metal Exchange (LME), into this Interxion London data centre. By strategically placing themselves in proximity to LME and these other liquidity venues, Beeks can connect via its direct fibre connectivity.
Having been previously connected to the LME in our Equinix London data centre, Beeks has taken the decision to follow the exchange into the Interxion Lon1 location in order to re-establish the connectivity and continue to provide this access for customers.
This link will allow Beeks customers to trade across a secure connection to LME and other providers within Lon1, providing access to the world’s largest market in options and futures contracts on base and other metals.
Gordon McArthur, CEO of Beeks Financial Cloud, commented, “We are delighted to build our partnership with Interxion as the best way to facilitate further connectivity and infrastructure in a highly desirable location such as Interxion’s London data centre. By establishing this setup with Interxion, we can deliver further trading opportunities to our clients and continue to expand on our offering.”
Bare metal servers in Lon1 and LME connectivity will be available on 30 day commitments via the Beeks Partner Portal for existing and new clients.
