RTS Expands Operations at Equinix Data Centers with New Deployments in Chicago and New York

Chicago, IL - November 11, 2008 - Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), a provider of global data center services, and RTS Realtime Systems, a leading trading solutions provider, today announced that RTS has expanded operations to the Equinix Chicago-3 (CH3) International Business Exchange (IBX®) data center in Elk Grove Village, IL and the Equinix New York-4 (NY4) IBX in Secaucus, NJ.

The addition of capacity builds upon RTS' current deployment at Equinix's CH1 and CH2 centers and adds to RTS' state-of-the-art low latency Direct Market Access (DMA) to U.S., European and Asian marketplaces. It will enable high-frequency traders to further reduce latency and increase speed by placing their applications close to the leading exchanges already operating at Equinix. Additionally, companies participating in the proximity trading communities of capital market participants aggregated within Equinix's CH3 and NY4 centers will benefit by directly accessing RTS' services.

RTS offers low latency market access via its global datacenters in the U.S., Europe and Asia to more than 40 equities, options and futures markets around the world.

“From companies providing buy-side routing order flows and sell-side broker or exchange routing and execution orders, to technology solutions providers, Equinix provides a scalable and reliable data center and connectivity infrastructure to support proximity trading businesses,” said John Knuff, director of business development for Equinix. “RTS is a leader in providing hosted high-frequency DMA trading services, and they are a valuable participant within this financial trading ecosystem.”

“We are pleased to be able to build further on our growing data center offering with the new expansions into additional Equinix facilities,” said Steffen Gemuenden, RTS Chairman and CEO.
