To make your name on Wall Street today, you no longer need a seat on the New York Stock Exchange. But your server better be colocated in the same data center as the NYSE's matching engine.

As the markets have grown increasingly electronic, speed has become the name of the game. And even the buy side is caught up in the race. To accelerate executions and spread their reach, hedge funds and other buy-side firms increasingly are colocating their trading strategies. Advanced Trading's August digital issue examines the drivers behind the trend as well as some of the costs.
