    • Over the course of the last year, CME Group migrated a series of applications as part of our data center consolidation effort. The SFTP portion is the last piece to complete the consolidation. We successfully tested with firms on Saturday, December 20th but decided to postpone the SFTP migration due to other non SFTP environment related issues. We would like to offer all firms the option to test on our SFTP Go Live date on Saturday, January 31st between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. CST. There are no changes required from a service provider or firm standpoint since the IP addresses and DNS name will remain the same.

      Test Overview
      • Verify ability to access the SFTP Production site including firm folders
      o This includes the internet facing sftpng.cmegroup.com and the dedicated CME WAN connection facing
      o If a firm is able to either download or upload a prior day’s file on the SFTP site that should suffice

      Please send an email to james.jones@cmegroup.com to confirm your participation on Saturday, January 31st. Once we have a final list of participants, we can provide a more detailed firm specific test window one week prior to the scheduled test.

      If you have any questions, please contact CME Clearing at (312) 207-2525 or ccs@cmegroup.com.
