PrimeXM CEO, Cristian Vlasceanu recently talked to Euromoney about co-location demand and how it has changed over the past year.
Among the key issues the article touches upon is the need for DDoS attack mitigation mechanisms and how co-location itself can function as a DDoS protection mechanism:
“Co-location can shelter institutions against such attacks since DDoS messages are not able to affect internal communication between the co-located entities.”
Mr. Vlasceanu also discusses the importance of catering to the low latency demands of the FX industry via an ultra-low latency hosting environment. It is natural to expect reductions in latency, Mr. Vlasceanu observes, as “hardware is constantly being upgraded, while the collective expertise and know-how of the fintech industry is also growing.”
