QS Colo Delivers High Performance Co-Location Services for Online Traders
PR Log - Nov 01, 2012 - Dedicated and virtually dedicated Virtual Private Server (VPS) and ultra-low latency solutions increases trading profits through 24 x7 Direct Market Access (DMA) and powerful QuadStationTM Technology to process automated trade algorithms, pre-trade analysis and data intensive applications.
NEW YORK, NY and NAPLES, FLA November 1, 2012 -- QS Colo announced today the launch of its new high performance colocation services, powered by QuadStationTM Technology. The QS Colo Cloud and the QS Trader Pro solutions provide online traders and analysts with rock solid, super-fast 24 x 7 Direct Market Access (DMA) to financial markets and secure anytime-anywhere access to their data and trading models. “Direct market access that improves liquidity; exceptional reliability and IT we don’t have to think about. Speed in our processing and hardware that lets us build and run more models and test faster – this is what QS Colo and QuadStationTM Technology does for us. We are delighted to be one of their anchor customers” says Gary Esayian of Corridor Capital, LLC, and co-development partner of the QS Colo Solution. “Using the best high performance hardware is now one of the key competitive advantages in trade execution and in driving profitable trading results.”
QS Colo deploys QuadStationTM Technology that drives faster trade execution and step-change efficiency gains in building and deploying trade strategies. Typical co-location services have as many as 50+ users sharing hardware resources, with CPU and memory allocations rationed across all users. This approach means dropped connections, abrupt stopping of trading logic and lost or missed trades. Says Len Osborne, Chief Technologist at QS Colo: “QS Colo is professional grade and unleashes full Intel i7 processor and memory power delivered in a dedicated configuration – or shared on a QS Server. Even in the lower cost virtual account configuration, we onboard no more than 4 total users to a QS Server. In our virtual account solution, each QS Colo user still receives a dedicated allocation of CPU (processing cores) and memory greater than that of any other top tier solution in the market – and processing performance not available in typical OEM hardware.”
QS Colo servers are located in secure data centers near financial exchanges providing Direct Market Access (DMA) to exchange matching engines, brokers and market data. This means faster access to market data, faster signal and trade processing and faster signal and trade processing and faster order entry – meaning the ability to take advantage of improved pricing and improved liquidity to drive higher profits. With the marriage of the QS Colo Cloud and QuadStationTM Technology, automated, semi-automated or manual trading (and high-speed trading analytics) is possible from anywhere – accessible from most any mobile device interface. International traders can now enjoy the benefits of ultra-low latency and trading connections, with their trading models and accounts in physical proximity to most any broker / broker platform based in the United States.
The QS Colo Cloud and the QS Trader Pro solutions benefit a wide range of traders, from at-home day traders, prop traders, small/mid-sized Hedge funds, as well as larger buy and sell side institutional firms – offered in a variety of standard pricing options, including the QSTrader Advantage Pro i7 processor-based multi-monitor hardware bundles or the fully-dedicated or virtual dedicated QS Colo Cloud service. Cross connection charges apply with automated back-ups included in all standard packages. Set up charges are free and special introductory pricing and discounts are currently available through Spring 2013. More information is available at www.QSColo.com
