Colocation allows traders to be physically near the IT systems where trades are executed, while simultaneously taking advantage of real-time access to financial data.
As with other highly regulated industries, the financial services industry must abide by strict protocols for their data storage and other operations. Choosing data centers with compliance in the major certifications, such as SOC 2 Type 1, SOC 2 Type 2, SOC 3, SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type 1, SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type 2, SSAE 18 SOC 1 Type 1, SSAE 18 SOC 1 Type 2, will ensure requirements are met.
With high frequency trading, firms use software that analyzes data and makes automated actions based on the conditions. Low latency levels allow traders to gain a competitive advantage through visibility of developments in real time. In other words, milliseconds matter.
