Both of our live primary trade server and failover primary trade server are hosted in data centers which are equipped with state of the art hardware at each level: application servers, storage solutions, network devices, dedicated fiber connections and redundant ISP connectivity.
Each of the data center setups is fully owned and designed with the focus on real time applications, enabling us to offer our clients a secure, redundant and low latency environment.
To ensure ultra-low latency connectivity, TriumphFX Cyprus has direct dedicated fiber links (cross connects) to the global-leading liquidity providers. The rapidly growing infrastructure currently consists of more than 50 cross connects at each of our data center locations and is projected to expand constantly in the future. This further expose TriumphFX Cyprus to more opportunities to more and deeper liquidity over the time. For Internet connectivity, the infrastructure is contracted with several Tier 1 Internet Service Providers (ISPs), achieving optimized and redundant routes to most locations around the globe. Traffic is load balanced through our dedicated ISP lines ensuring stability and continuation of service in case of ISP failures. Additionally, the network is carefully provisioned to handle huge traffic spikes in case of significant financial events.
Our servers are sitting in the infrastructure which has been designed to be resilient at each level, to comply with the requirements of the financial industry. “Hot” stand-by hardware has been provisioned for our trade servers, ready to continue the service with no or minimal downtime. The core networking components (routers, firewalls and switches) are run in paired mode, allowing for real-time redundancy. Redundant data storage solutions have been chosen to ensure the highest level of availability and consistency. Additionally, all hardware has been purchased with strict SLAs from the manufacturers, guaranteeing the replacement of faulty units within hours. Internet connectivity redundancy is achieved through the aggregation of at least 3 ISPs in each data center location providing the setup with the highest level of connectivity up time.
The enterprise Cisco and Arista networking equipment allows our data centers' in-house experts to create a secure environment for our clients, restricting access to sensitive data. Strict access policies are applied at each level of the infrastructure for both external and internal communication, ensuring each client setup is isolated. Following the highest security standards, periodic maintenance, software updates and audit operations are performed on all components and configurations, to minimize vulnerabilities.
