Exchange Cloud is an evolution of Proximity Cloud that has been explicitly designed for global financial exchanges and electronic communication networks (ECNs). While Proximity Cloud comprises a single-user interface, this next iteration comprises a multi-home capability as well as additional analytics features.
Through Exchange Cloud, exchanges and ECNs can offer end-user cloud compute to their customers as well as maintain space for their own internal use if required. Utilising high precision timing tools and supporting unicast and multicast datasets, the platform can be deployed in any exchange anywhere in the world and white labelled by exchanges across different asset classes.
Exchange Cloud was designed to be a fully-managed and configurable compute, storage and analytics rack built with industry-leading low latency hardware that allows global exchanges to run compute, storage and analytics on-premise.
The key comparison to Proximity Cloud is a multi-home capability that lets exchanges provide an in co-lo, branded cloud experience to their own customer base.
Exchange Cloud has a parent and child portal set up that grants the Exchange a master portal view and rights to build multiple client portals and assign infrastructure to client sub portals. Inbuilt data analytics monitors the Exchange performance including market data replay functionality and packet capture. The additional analytics functionality within Exchange Cloud gives latency and microburst information natively within the portal.
