ARQA Technologies’ Data Centres are located in Moscow and London.
Two data centres are operational in Moscow at M10 of RTComm and M1 of Stack Telecom. They provide access to Russian trading venues, SunGard Global Network, and services of QuantHouse and Thomson Reuters.
The data centre at M10 is the largest service centre for front-office systems used on SaaS basis in Russia, both by the number of companies and the number of simultaneously serviced end users. The M1 based centre allows to back up services provided by the data centre at M10.
For access to LSEG test trading systems ARQA Technologies has opened a point of technical presence in London at Interxion.
All software in the data centres is provided and maintained by ARQA Technologies. As for user right management and business logic adjustment, all of those are performed by the staff of a client company.
In the SaaS mode all required software (including that of third parties), equipment and communication channels are provided by the data centres at no extra charge.
Connection to the data centres may be implemented via a dedicated line or over the Internet including a secure VPN-channel. System backup is provided for all critical equipment. Special software is used to ensure automatic switch-over (recovery) in the event of failure. The data is backed up on a daily basis.
