International interconnection and data center company Equinix Inc (NASDAQ:EQIX) today announces that Omega Securities Inc. will build its matching engine in Equinix’s recently opened Toronto International Business Exchange (IBX) data center, TR2.
Through the new matching engine, Omega, operating providers of financial services to investors and traders Omega ATS and Lynx ATS, will offer its clients access to real-time transparent quotes and trade information.

At present, Omega has an access node in Equinix’s TR1 IBX data center and will be deploying their secondary node in TR2 in the third quarter of 2016.
Located at the Equinix campus in downtown Toronto, Canada,TR2 serves the financial, media and enterprise companies. The new facility offers premium colocation services and is designed to meet enterprises’ need for larger footprints and data-intensive applications deployed closer to the edge.
Raymond Tung, chief operating officer, Omega Securities Inc, says:
“The Equinix Toronto campus was a strategic choice for Omega, as it is home to a growing ecosystem of financial services firms, including several of our existing customers and partners. By extending our matching engine here, we can easily interconnect with these businesses in a fast and reliable way and leverage Equinix’s extensive expertise in the financial sector.”
