Vienna Stock Exchange unveils new data distribution infrastructure, 4x faster than before

(PRESS RELEASE) VIENNA, 11-Jan-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — Wiener Börse AG, the operator of the stock exchanges in Vienna and Prague, has announced the launch of its new market data distribution infrastructure. This system upgrade will enable over 270 customers to receive stock market data from 11 markets four times faster. The software, hardware, and operating system of the ADH data feed, known as the Alliance Data Highway, were upgraded to the latest technical standards by the IT experts of the Vienna Stock Exchange in coordination with its customers. This step increases the stability of the system and lowers latency even further. The parallel operation is set to run until April 3rd, making it easier for customers to switch over to the new system. Additionally, the introduction of a permanent simulation environment and a production-like test environment will allow customers to run extensive and complex test scenarios in the future.

“After the renewal of the trading system, the improvement of the data feed is part of a series of investments in our infrastructure. Throughout the entire process, the exchange team has been clearly oriented towards the needs of the customers. This enables us to meet the highest technical and functional requirements for transparent information on securities trading,” says Christoph Boschan, CEO of the Vienna Stock Exchange.

The Vienna Stock Exchange distributes real-time data from 11 markets worldwide: Information and prices on securities from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kazakhstan, Croatia, Northern Macedonia, Austria, Serbia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Hungary as well as trading data from the EXAA Energy Exchange Austria. The one-stop-shop solution reduces the customer’s administrative, legal and technical effort in data sourcing to a minimum. More than 16,000 end users from around 60 countries use the Vienna data hub for Central and South-Eastern Europe.
