In the event of a DR scenario for EBS Markets on CME Globex, client impacts are distinct for different scenarios and connectivity types. This topic describes possible DR scenarios and the impacts to CME Group and CDN connections. More information on the different connectivity options for EBS Markets on CME Globex is available here.

In normal Production operation, the following connectivity types provide access to EBS Market and eFix Matching Service on CME Globex.

Co-Location Services Impacts: CME GLink and CME Globex Hub - TY5 

CME Globex Co-Location customer equipment is housed in the same facility as the CME Globex Production environment. As a result, Co-Location customers may have special considerations in the event of an EBS Market on CME Globex production failure.

Co-Location customers are responsible for their own DR strategy. Co-Location customers must have disaster recovery procedures in place to continue business accordingly.

Co-Location Services includes:

  • GLink Secaucus
  • GLink Slough
  • CME Globex Hub - TY5

CME Group identifies three scenarios that would initiate DR procedures for the Co-Location facility:

  • Co-Location Services available / CME Globex unavailable
  • Co-Location Services unavailable / CME Globex available
  • Co-Location Services unavailable / CME Globex unavailable (entire facility unavailable).

Co-Location Outage Event Notification

DR event notifications are communicated by the Co-Location Customer Support team if the Co-Location Production environment fails as result of a disaster. DR notifications are sent to registered contacts enrolled via the Co-Location Services Customer Support Portal. Firm Administrators can register emergency contacts from the Firm Administration tab on the Customer Support portal.

Disaster Scenarios for CME Globex and Co-Location Facilities

The Production facility houses CME Globex Production and Co-Location services. The following table details each of the three scenarios for which customers must be prepared.

Description

CME Group Responsibility

Client Responsibility

Scenario 1

NY5

LD4.2

TY5

  • Co-Location Services available
  • CME Globex Production unavailable

Co-Location Services are operable, but CME Globex Production is inoperable.

CME Group initiates DR procedures.

GLink and CME Globex Hub - TY5 are available in this scenario.

Client must update their network configuration to route to the EBS Market on CME Globex DR environment(s).

Scenario 2

NY5

LD4.2

TY5

  • Co-Location Services unavailable
  • CME Globex Production available

Customer has lost connectivity to CME Globex Production within Co-Location facility.

None

Co-location services in the impacted production data center (GLink-Slough, GLink-Secaucus, or CME Globex Hub - TY5) are NOT available in this scenario

Customer initiates their internal DR strategy to connect to the Production environment.

CME Group strongly recommends all Co-Located clients establish alternative/back-up connectivity in case of connectivity issues.

Scenario 3

NY5

LD4.2

TY5

  • Co-Location Services unavailable
  • CME Globex Production unavailable

Site failure; Co-Location Services and CME Globex Production are inoperable.

CME Group initiates DR procedures.

GLink and/or CME Globex Hub - TY5 are NOT available in this scenario.

Customer initiates their internal DR strategy to connect to the DR environment.

CME Group strongly recommends all Co-Located clients establish alternative/back-up connectivity in case of connectivity issues.

Scenario 1 - Production Failover, Co-Location Services Operable

New York NY5 Failover

TY5 Event

In this scenario, the iLink 3 CGW and Credit Screened Market Data gateways in TY5 are not available. Clients can use their TY5 connections to access LD4.2 and/or NY5 gateways directly.

TY5 clients are strongly encouraged to obtain iLink 3 CGW and Credit Screened Market Data sessions in LD4.2 or NY5 to use in this scenario.

Scenario 2 - Production Operable, Co-Location Services Inoperable

All Co-Located clients are strongly encouraged to arrange alternative connectivity to use in this scenario

New York NY5

EBS Market and eFix trading remains in the Production data centers, but NY5 Co-Location service is not available.
