Options Partners with Redline Trading Solutions to Deliver Fully Managed Trading Platform for Equiti

Options, the leading private financial cloud provider for the global capital markets industry, has today announced a further expansion of their partnership with Redline Trading Solutions, Inc., a provider of low-latency market data and order execution solutions, which will see the IaaS provider offer a fully managed ticker plant for options and equities.

The Options-Redline collaboration enables trading firms to access a complete and fully resilient set of exchange-traded equities, options, futures and FX market data, in addition to a full suite of broker connections, and to submit and track orders to the exchanges. Additionally, the service is being delivered via market leading low latency infrastructure and alongside a fully redundant hosted environment with storage in NY4 and Weehawken.

The delivery of this latest trading solution is the second noteworthy collaboration between Options and Redline. In late 2010, the firms announced the deployment of the Redline InRush Accelerated Ticker Plant to the Options’ Private Financial Cloud platform. As with the InRush ticker plant, this enhanced solution is being deployed as part of the Options PIPE® Velocity offering. PIPE Velocity is a low latency trading, FIX connectivity, market data and computing infrastructure.
