FCM360 Introduces a Fast and Low-latency Virtual Private Server (VPS) for Trading

vps-hosting-forexFCM360, a company specialized in turnkey datacenter solutions for traders and exchanges, has launched CLOUD TRADER – a Virtual Private Server (VPS) product group for superior access to Foreign Exchange (FOREX) trading, formerly available only to big banks and financial institutions at a greater cost.

The CLOUD TRADER group of VPS hosting products would cater to the needs of organizations such as hedge-funds, asset managers and other mid-tier and retail traders who want exceptionally fast, low-latency trading without making a capital investment in their own hosting and connectivity in the major markets.


FCM360’s CLOUD TRADER solution provides the latest generation Intel Ivy Bridge V2 chipsets, Pliant ultra-low latency SSD drives and sub-microsecond switches with 200 nanosecond port latency. This would allow FCM360’s VPS hosting product to achieve bare metal server speeds running FCM360’s own KVM-based cloud infrastructure along with VMware ESX, Citrix Xen Server and Microsoft Hyper-V 2012. Clients can connect to brokers, banks, ECNs, MT4 bridges and other liquidity sources through fiber cross-connects located at Equinix NY4 and LD4 locations along with FCM360’s Tier-1 BGP low latency Internet services.

In addition to having a firm foothold in traditional Forex markets in North America and Europe, FCM360 products are now providing high-speed, low-latency trading to brokerage firms and traders in Moscow, Cyprus, India, Hong Kong, Tokyo and throughout Southeast-Asia and South-Africa.
