T7 Cloud Simulation Support

The T7 Cloud Simulation is a self-service environment provided by Deutsche Börse AG. It offers Trading Participants access to a dedicated instance of Eurex Exchange’s T7 trading architecture for testing and development purposes.

The T7 Cloud Simulation offers flexible access to T7 simulation environments: 

  • Production simulation allows for testing in the current production version of Eurex Exchange’s T7

Supporting Documents


The T7 Cloud Simulations allows you to:  

  • create your own orderbooks 

  • set the market trading phase 

  • change the state of specific products 

  • use the Liquidity Generator and Auto Matcher to enter trade reversals

  • test failover scenarios 

The functionality of the offered interfaces is equal. However, there is no post-trade environment attached, no reference data and no access to the various GUIs. It is designed to support our members & ISVs software development.

Correct, each customer opens its own T7 instance and you’ll have a preconfigured number of IDs to use for test trading. 

Yes, as the T7 Cloud Simulation is an additional resource to the regular simulation and is nonnegotiable.

You are billed per hour, for each hour since the market in T7 Cloud Simulation instance becomes available. Start of the exchange can take approximately 10 minutes, but you are never billed for the time it takes for the instance to start up, until the exchange is available for your use.

You start the T7 Cloud Simulation instances for yourself only; the instances are then billed from the moment the market becomes available, regardless of whether you connect to it or not (its similar to a parking pricing scheme.) There is also an automatic termination feature, which stops your T7 Cloud Simulation instance when its maximum run time has elapsed, in case you forget to terminate it manually. This is by default set to 4 hours (meaning that by default you won't be billed for more than 4 hours), but can be adjusted at any point from instance start up until its termination within the interface. Instances can run for anywhere between 1 and 24 hours.

Slide 8 of the Cloud Simulation presentation addresses this topic. The presentation also provides a nice overview of our T7 Cloud offering.
