NYSE Euronext Builds Ultra-Low Latency Network with Juniper Networks

NYSE Euronext has selected Juniper Networks to design a state-of-the-art, ultra-low latency core network for NYSE Euronext's new consolidated global data centers. In a press event in New York, the companies said they will pursue a simplified data center architecture that is optimized for low latency and vast scalability. The blueprint calls for collapsing multiple switching layers to reduce complexity while yielding improved efficiencies in space, power, cooling and management. Juniper estimates it can reduce network complexity and total cost of ownership by up to 52 percent in capital expenditures, up to 44 percent in power, up to 44 percent in cooling and up to 55 percent in data center rack space.


Located in the greater New York and London metropolitan areas, NYSE Euronext's two new data centers will be the primary operational infrastructure supporting several billion daily transactions and quotes across diverse asset classes and geographies, and will be instrumental in NYSE Euronext's effort to consolidate the total number of its global data centers from ten to four. Expected to be operational in 2010, the new facilities will provide much greater network scale and efficiency, with plans to utilize Juniper's Data Center Infrastructure Solutions and advanced data center fabric technology to support an unprecedented internal latency of 50 microseconds roundtrip.


The deployment will include the Juniper Networks EX Series Ethernet Switches and MX Series Ethernet Services Routers. The data center core designs are anchored by the EX8216 Ethernet Switch and uses top of rack EX2500 Ethernet Switches to provide access connectivity to the data centers' high-performance servers with 10GbE ports that deliver wire-speed throughput. NYSE Euronext also plans to leverage the advanced routing capabilities, such as MPLS network virtualization, low-latency multicast, advanced quality of service (QoS), and high availability of Juniper's family of MX Series Ethernet Services Routers.


"Juniper's simplified data center approach will allow us to deploy a complete 10 Gigabit Ethernet network with ultra-low latency at a substantial cost savings," said Steve Rubinow, executive vice president and co-global CIO of NYSE Euronext.


"Competitiveness in the global financial markets is measured in microseconds and the NYSE Euronext trading platform is one of the world's premiere high-performance networks, supporting billions of transactions each day," said Kevin Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Juniper Networks. "The NYSE Euronext technology vision is in alignment with Juniper's next generation data center roadmap, which will lead to the creation of a single data center fabric that will deliver a quantum advance in scale, performance and simplicity, while lowering energy consumption and reducing overall operating costs."http://www.nyx.com
