A global leader in online multi-asset trading services, OANDA has further demonstrated their commitment to providing clients with ultra-low latency trading opportunities on its award-winning trading platform and world-class customer support by extending its global partnership with Equinix, the world's leading interconnection and data centre provider, to Singapore. OANDA now houses part of its mission-critical IT equipment inside Equinix’s new SG3 facility in Singapore, which is its largest data centre in Asia Pacific.
“The decision to move our servers to Equinix in Singapore was easy,” explains Courtney Gibson, Chief Information Security Officer with OANDA. “Having enjoyed a strong working relationship with Equinix in the US, Canada and Japan, we wanted to extend that commitment to clients throughout Asia, further broadening our global technology footprint.”
Gibson continues, “We originally chose Equinix because of the robust ecosystem and interconnected financial services partners that exist inside their data centres, which ensures high performance, network reliability, redundancy, and low latency, potentially increasing trading opportunities for our clients. However, the decision to move our servers to their SG3 facility will further cement our footprint within the Asia-Pacific region.”
“We’re delighted to be extending our working relationship with OANDA here in Asia Pacific,” said Clement Goh, managing director of Equinix South Asia. “The move demonstrates the rich financial ecosystem and interconnection capabilities of our data centres and how we are well equipped to help businesses such as OANDA expand their global footprint. All of this is made possible through our dynamic ecosystems of business partners, networks and carriers for business growth.”
Globally, Equinix connects 8,000 companies directly to their customers and partners inside the world’s most interconnected data centres, which link more than 1,400 network service providers together.
