How Will the B3 Data Center Migration Impact Trading in the Region?


Without feet on the ground, it can be difficult for non-Brazilian firms to get a full understanding of the regional markets. Especially ahead of the B3 data center migration, there are additional unknowns that will require advanced planning and local assistance to ensure uninterrupted trading.

B3 Migration: What You Need to Know Now

In 2014 BVMF announced that it will consolidate from five data centers down to two and will be switching the primary and secondary data center functions by the end of 2017, impacting anyone colocated with and trading on the exchange. However, Perseus Brazil clients will not be at all impacted by this migration. We have been proactively working with our clients throughout the past year to put in place a connectivity model between the new data centers that would not impact their current, live trading connectivity.

Perseus clients will have access to the new Equinix SP3 data center, the closest proximity hosting center located directly adjacent to the matching engine’s new location, as well as multiple options for connectivity and colocation directly with the Exchange at B3-SPA.
