T7 Disaster Recovery Test

Eurex offers a test scenario according to its T7 Disaster Recovery (DR) concept. The DR test scenario simulates an outage of our regular T7 production system which is hosted in our primary data center facility. 

This DR test scenario does not simulate a complete data center outage, which means that co-location customers will be able to attend on the test. In such a disaster recovery scenario, Eurex’s T7 infrastructure regularly used for T7 simulation will be used to serve as DR production infrastructure. The features, changes and improvements of this scenario are related to continued market integrity.

Test date: 5 October 2024
