FCM360, a global provider of low latency financial cloud hosting services, has enhanced its service to Asia’s foreign exchange (Forex) trading community with the addition of cloud hosting offerings to the Tokyo-based TY3 data center of Equinix.
In addition to providing connections to Japan’s two largest financial exchanges –Tokyo Financial Exchange (TFX) and Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM) – TY3 offers Forex traders and brokers colocation facilities at a major peering and Internet exchange point for the Asia-Pacific region.
“FCM360 is the first managed hosting services provider in Asia focusing on turnkey products to help FX brokers and liquidity providers,” said Jubin Pejman, managing director of FCM360. “The hosting services help FX traders located in Asia improve executions and access to market pricing by providing low latency connections back to New York and London for liquidity and pricing.”

To further support its growing Asia-Pacific client base, FCM360 also added Mandarin Chinese and Japanese language support at its 24/7 Network Operations Center located in the United States.
Clients who access cloud hosting services from FCM360 in TY3 also gain access to the FCM360 Global Network that offers fast connections between Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore back to New York and London using the FCM360 Micro Point of Presence (POP) services designed for FX brokers and traders.
