FXone customers can now access Equinix’s NY4 and TY3 via Beeks
CHICAGO, April 14, 2016 — Beeks Financial Cloud, a global leader in financial cloud infrastructure, announced today that it has formed a partnership with Seabury FXone, a provider of FX liquidity management solutions and a subsidiary of Seabury Capital, that establishes a one-stop solution for low latency connectivity to Equinix’s New York (NY4) and Tokyo (TY3) data centers.
Seabury FXone customers now benefit from Beeks’ existing cloud offerings at these facilities. In establishing the connectivity and compute, the first components were delivered only three days after the initial call on client requirements, thereby expediting the connectivity build. And because of Beeks’ robust and proven hosting solution, FXone is delivering connectivity at a highly competitive price point with a substantially reduced time to market for its clients.
“FXone is excited about the opportunity to partner with a service provider who is already established in the Tokyo marketplace,” commented Seabury FXone Chief Technology Officer Michael Bundy. “Beeks Financial Cloud has a deep understanding of the local market that we can leverage for our customer base, and they are a proven leader in the field.”
Beeks CEO Gordon McArthur said, “This partnership is a solid step in the right direction to further expand our global footprint. Seabury FXone provides a strong validation of our institutional focus this year, and we’re pleased to connect our customers with FXone’s software and liquidity.”
Beeks Financial Cloud recently announced its expanded reach in Asia through its new partnership with Audacity Capital, a Dubai-based proprietary trading firm, which has chosen Beeks as its connectivity and server hosting solution.
