The truth is, data centers aren't all that exciting. Server rooms are dark and cold -- both literally and aesthetically. But the technology inside the buildings is another story.
Data center technology continues to evolve at blazing speeds, and as more and more market participants locate their servers at particular facilities, traditional data centers are transforming into liquidity destinations. And they've become a multibillion-dollar business. As a result, traditional data center operators are facing new competition -- from the exchanges.
Wall Street & Technology's January digital issue details the rise of liquidity centers and how they are reshaping the capital markets as well as traditional financial centers around the world.
