To facilitate the smooth running of countless financial IT workloads, hundreds of capital markets participants, insurers and electronic payments firms co-locate their critical IT systems. At Volta, central London’s edge data centre, this process happens with security and reliability you expect from an award-winning data centre.
As financial services clients continue to focus on regulatory compliance, clear challenges arise. Electronic trading infrastructures for various asset classes are emerging, while low-latency, lag-free connectivity to key trading venues remains crucial. At the same time, Heads of Risk and Chief Technology Officers must ensure that even the non-critical IT infrastructure is in place to deal with the management of reference data, to facilitate trade reporting in a timely manner and to make sure trading data is stored in accordance with regulatory guidelines and timelines.
To meet these needs with ease, Volta offers high-quality diverse and low-latency connectivity on a 24/7 basis. With a power supply of 33kV from two separate parts of the national grid and partnerships with the world’s leading carriers, Volta is a fully accredited hub for connectivity and content distribution to networks across the UK and worldwide. Located in what was formerly the Reuters building, Volta is London’s most resilient and super-connected data centre, offering financial services firms access to key global exchanges through our partners, and powerful and securely located hosting infrastructure.Financial services guide
