Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE: ICE), an operator of global exchanges and clearing houses and provider of mortgage technology, data and listings services, has launched its new managed hosting services and its managed services offering with Netrix.
This managed hosting solution would allow organizations to take advantage of ICE’s expertise in trading and technology infrastructures. It would also leverage their relationship with Netrix to procure, monitor and manage hardware at data centers around the world.
ICE’s global data center footprint already allows its customers to host or collocate their equipment in key trading centers across the United States, Canada and Europe. This new managed hosting offering builds on that infrastructure. It provides customers with an end-to-end ‘premium’ hosting solution – including ultra-low-latency market access and managed infrastructure – as well as access to more than 150 capital market venues and over 750 native market data feeds.
Market participants would be able to meet their connectivity and hosting needs in addition to gaining “ultra-low-latency” access to local market data and order entry. ICE is also offering private bandwidth to connect to and from remote locations, as well as accurate timestamping services. The ‘premium’ hosting and timing services are initially launching in Aurora, Illinois; Frankfurt, Germany; and Basildon, UK, with additional sites to be added in 2021.
“ICE’s premium hosting services offer customers a single point of access to expand their footprint to connect, consume data and trade on key markets, which helps them save on additional infrastructure expenses,” said Margaret Niche, Head of ICE Global Network. “This solution allows customers to take advantage of ICE’s expertise in trading and technology infrastructures, and leverages our relationship with Netrix to procure, monitor and manage hardware at datacenters around the world.”

Netrix, a specialist in managed services and systems integration, will help ICE’s customers augment or replace their existing trading infrastructure. Netrix provides the complete stack of related services, including procurement, management, monitoring, support and specialized services.
