    Where can I get a virtual server near the Interactive Brokers data centre?
     
  2. call IB and ask.

    Virtual will be tough though. if its in a cloud there really is no telling where you are and what your ping times will be.

    i'm trying to collocate with my broker,but i was unable to locate the broker's address :cool:

    what is the point of collocating with broker anyway? with exchange-it does make sense,but broker? they can hold your data,orders for as long as they need it

    I am in a building on another continent that does not have ups backup for the comms room. Locating on a server nearby would solve some of these issues.
