IEX was developing a brand new class of trading system and they needed it hosted in a highly available data center with fast, reliable connectivity to the financial services community. With the demanding requirements for stability and compliance in financial trading, IEX needed their own dedicated infrastructure. As a new business, IEX wanted to minimize capital expenditure, reserving capital to meet Escrow requirements instead of spending it on IT hardware. They needed a cost-effective solution with the flexibility to deal with rapid growth and spikes in demand.
While IEX focused on building the Alternative Trading System that powered their new business, CenturyLink went to work. They partnered with decision makers to design a platform for the IEX trading system that included colocation, managed hosting services (for servers and storage), remote hands support and both extranet and internet network services. Instead of having to contract separately, IES was able to get colocation with all the services they wanted and best-in-class technology under one roof.
