Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants

Annual Disaster Recovery test - Saturday 12th Sept 2020

Cboe Europe (Cboe) will be conducting its annual disaster recovery (DR) test for the Production BXE, CXE, DXE, TRF and SIS environments on Saturday 12th September 2020.
The purpose of this testing day is for Cboe to simulate various DR failover scenarios, including a test of market failover from its primary data centre at Equinix Slough (LD4) to its secondary data centre at Equinix Park Royal (LD3). Participant attendance is not mandatory but is strongly recommended as this exercise affords Participants the ability to observe how their trading, quoting, trade reporting and market data applications would function in the event of a DR incident at Cboe.

Participants should note the following:

* Change Freeze - Participants wishing to take part in the DR test must submit any outstanding requests for new ports by 16:00 UK time on Thursday 10th September. No new port requests will be processed on Friday 11th September.
* Production Data - Please ensure that your Production systems are not configured to send Production trade reports when Cboe systems come up on the morning of Saturday 12th September, as all data from that day will be discarded as test data.
