Webmaster ToolsFoster City, CA – Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), a provider of global data center services, today announced that Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), the largest U.S. options exchange and creator of listed options, plans to locate electronic trading operations for its all-electronic exchange, currently known as “C2,” at the Equinix New York-4 (NY4) International Business Exchange (IBX®) data center in Secaucus, NJ. SEC approval of C2 is pending, and CBOE has not yet announced an official launch date for the new exchange.

C2’s participation in Equinix Financial eXchange at the NY4 center will provide the growing number of electronic trading firms in the center with direct proximity to CBOE’s C2 options products. Equinix Financial eXchange serves capital market participants such as exchanges, buy and sell side firms, market data providers, technology utilities and network service providers. These companies locate operations within Equinix data centers in order to implement a high-performance, low latency connectivity infrastructure within a neutral environment. In addition, the NY4 center can accommodate the latest power, cooling and space demands of the new generation of IT equipment, allowing financial companies to focus on their core competencies rather than on the increasingly complex management of a high-performance data center infrastructure.
