IB fx spot

If I want to trade fx spot with minimal latency through speedy servers, what is the correct IB data center for this?
Greenwich or chicago?
What about equities and futures although they are not as important as fx right now.

Latency issues

Hello Sam,
I'm relatively new so not altogether aware of how things works... Lol's My question is my platform is Ninjatrader 8 and the broker is Philips Capital. Is the 1ms you list on your website still applicable? Guess I'm not sure of the hoops that the signal runs thru... Also from Thailand to your servers is there a way to check ping time?
thanks very much

Philip Capital is an FCM, assuming you're using CQG/Continuum or Rithmic you'll be less than 1 ms away.
I'll send you a pingable IP in a private message.

Windows Updates on VPS's

Hello Sam,

I'm considering getting a VPS for some automated strategies. And I have some inquiries with regard to Up/Down time.

I have read the whole review but I'm still not clear on how one can be notified about an unexpected down time for a server and how much time of a delay there can be? And if it is a scheduled downtime for an update for example , I 'm guessing it is usually done outside of market hours, does one have to get his VPS back up and running in the middle of the night wherever one might be?

In addition, I have couple of desktops at home, which very often go through updates for windows. Is there a big difference of how often the servers' windows updates are applied by comparison to personal computer windows? I 'm assuming that the individual VPS's are running on windows version for servers or am I wrong to assume that?
I'm concerned about how often reboots could be done to these VPS's, and how much time does that take.

If you can clarify some of these issues , I would really Appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Statistically the unexpected downtime we see are network glitches, which are fixed in seconds or minutes. These events are very rare, once or twice a year during the bad years, and is not impacting all the datacenters (we use 4 different datacenters).
The planned outages are always done during a week-end, the users are informed one week before. Highly critical software patches are installed quickly, the others when there an opportunity (once a year or so).

We use server's version of windows: there is no automatic updates install and no unexpected reboots. Some of our users never install updates and never reboot (example: Uptime OK 2019-07-15 02:11:24 11d 7h 7m 25s 1/4 System Uptime - 820 day(s) 16 hour(s) 26 minute(s)).
The restart time depends on the RAM installed on the VPS but it's less than 10 seconds.

For users who wants to be informed if their machine is unreachable we install a monitoring agent and this agent is polled by our monitoring servers (which are not in the same data center). If for any reason the monitoring servers can't reach the VPS the user will receive an alert email.
But the most common problem is when a VPS is not correctly sized: a 1.5 GB VPS for Tradestation with 50 workspaces, or Ninja strategy optimization with 80 parameters. In this case all the available RAM will be used and Windows will be like stuck.
In this case we recommend configuring Speedy Alert, so the user will receive by email warnings about the RAM usage, and/or program crashes.

Thank you very much Sam for the quick and detailed reply.

I think I got the information I was looking for. I hope to be in touch soon regarding a VPS service. How do I actually go about consulting with you for this? private messaging here on Futures.IO or through the web site.....?
