REMINDER: Bats Europe: Annual Disaster Recovery Test - Saturday 24th September 2016

September 02, 2016 07:25:56

Dear Bats Europe Participants

Disaster Recovery test - Saturday 24th September 2016

Bats Europe will be conducting its annual disaster recovery (DR) test on the Production BXE and CXE integrated order books and TRF environment on Saturday 24th September 2016. The purpose of this testing day is for Bats Europe 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, trade reporting and market data applications would function in the event of a DR event at Bats Europe. Please contact the Trade Desk to register your attendance.

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 22nd September. No new port requests will be processed on Friday 23rd September.
* Production Data - Please ensure that your systems are configured not to send production trade reports to Bats Europe when our systems come up on the DR test morning as all data from the day will be discarded as test data.
* Disaster Recovery Testing Guide - Now available, including the schedule of activities.
