Nasdaq OMX Group is moving their disaster recovery data center from Ashburn, Virginia, to Chicago. The new DR site will be located in Equinix's CH4 facility. 

Nasdaq said the move provides expanded geographic diversity, with the new location enabling customers to hook into a multitude of asset engines housed in or near the Chicago facility. The decision to move the Nasdaq DR site was based on customer feedback, the company said.

The feeds to Nasdaq Stock Market, Options Market, and others will be available out of Chicago in August, several months before officially shutting down in Ashburn in January of next year. Parallel data feeds will be available in the intermittent period. Nasdaq is taking a staggered approach in migrating disaster recovery. Plans are to also move post-trade, back office, and reporting services to Chicago in early 2016.
