FX Server Hosting

Our servers in Equinix LD4 hold prime real-estate in the most sought after IT space in the financial industry. Unlike competing cloud products, who normally do not disclose the location of their servers nor provide their clients with full service hosting, Olfa is different, and Olfa will make the difference for your business.

Location Disclosure and Transparent Latency

Our infrastructure and close proximity to liquidity providers and exchanges make our data that fastest. Market data moves through our low-latency system and is delivered to you via the cloud. You will know the actual latency on the platform at any given time.

Low Latency

Using the latest technology and streamlined code, plus co-location in London, the connection we can provide you to the global FX marketplace is unmatched. If a trading firm replaces its infrastructure, OLFA ensures that the networking and processing latencies will meet or exceed your new deployment.

Tuning Servers for Ultra Low Latency

In the world of high frequency trading, time in the financial industry is measured in nanoseconds. In this environment, one has to focus on reducing latency as well as increasing throughput.
