New York, NY (October 22, 2012) – Telx®, a leading provider of global interconnectivity, cloud enablement services and datacenter solutions, today announced that Sky Road, a leading cloud-based financial application provider has leveraged Telx’s reliable, secure cloud connection center, “CHI1” at 350 East Cermak Road, Chicago, Illinois, providing Sky Road with access to Telx’s extensive Financial Services community. As a colocation and interconnection client in Telx’s strategically located data center in downtown Chicago, Sky Road can now offer Telx’s financial community with reliable and high-performance connectivity to Swap Trader, its cloud based solution for comprehensive trading services.
“As the swaps market evolved, we realized we needed a data center partner that could provide secure and high-performance connectivity to our clients,” said John Borse, CEO of Sky Road. “Telx was able to offer us access to our clients via fiber cross-connects rather than more complex and costly alternatives.”
“We are excited to have Sky Road join the Telx financial ecosystem in our CHI1 facility. Sky Road is uniquely positioned to provide services to guide buy-side participants through the rapidly changing OTC Derivatives reform,” said Shawn Kaplan, General Manager of Financial Services for Telx. “We have seen many trading systems turn to Telx because of our proximity to the clearing venues, swaps execution facilities, and buy-side participants. We are confident Sky Road will find significant value connecting with the financial institutions in our ecosystem.”
