Proximity, Co-Lo Data Centers for quant development – Help Needed
I am compiling a list of major proximity/co-lo data centers, and what service providers, liquidity hubs (all asset classes) are in them. Primarily looking at NYC/NJ metro, and London UK, but interested in other marketplaces. Who can help me? I am already quite advanced in my research and am working towards publishing a comprehensive list – for free access – on Low-Latency.com. Please comment here or be in touch. Thanks!
You will get better responses if you can show what you are already have. Put up a wiki style page that shows good research and progress, and I’d guess you’ll get better contributions than starting here with a blank page.
I can tell you that First Communications reaching all throughout the east coast and into Toronto. Our route is COMPLETELY DIVERSE as well. Let me know if you would like a list of all
Affirmed Systems has and sells co-lo data centers to low-latency and other clients at Equinix NY4 in Secaucus, New Jersey, and Atlantic Metro at 325 Hudson Street in Manhattan. Other NYC area co-lo data centers are Sunguard in Carlstadt, New Jersey (30 minutes drive time), Savvis in Piscataway, New Jersey (60-minute drive time), and Internap is in Manhattan. Best, Tom
