The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) on Friday announced that provider of data centre infrastructure support services PRO IT is the newest Managed Service Provider to join the financial markets community in the Australian Liquidity Centre.
PRO IT will be co-locating in the Australian Liquidity Centre (ALC), ASX’s state-of-the-art data centre. The addition of PRO IT as a Managed Service Provider will offer expert support and bespoke IT services to existing and new customers wishing to locate themselves at the heart of the Australian financial market.
PRO IT, which has been active since 1999, focuses on providing IT infrastructure services to the finance industry. It has a wide reach across several Australian capital cities and a growing offshore capability enabling the company to engage with firms looking to enter the Australian market. Organisations within the ALC will be able to benefit from a raft of innovative and high availability services specifically tailored for the rigorous demands of the industry. Private cloud, Infrastructure as a Service, Multi-tenant hosting and Remote hands, will assist PRO IT customers in the ALC.
PRO IT Managing Director, Bekir Kilic says,
“We have previously supported a number of firms with their transition and relocation into ASX’s ALC from other data centres. We are now very much looking forward to extending our infrastructure services and private cloud platform into the ALC. With the ALC housing the highest concentration of financial market-related organisations in one Australian data centre, implementing our capabilities in the same location was an easy decision to make. The revolution of Australian FinTech is also opening up opportunities to bring new ventures into the ALC community with start-ups looking to tap into the vast sums of financial and economic data being created there.”
David Raper, ASX Executive General Manager Trading Services, says,
“ASX is pleased to welcome PRO IT into the ALC community. It’s a great example of a successful Australian IT services provider who’s professionalism and vast experience will bring value to our mutual customers. In this ever more competitive landscape where organisations are pursing avenues to reduce cost, complexity and risk, PRO IT has a track record which could help firms address those drivers while increasing business agility.”
