    • As previously announced, to accommodate continued growth, CME Group is expanding its infrastructure and moving to a new state-of-the-art data center.

      The migration will take place in two phases as described below.


      iLink Production IP Address Migration
      In the first phase, new Primary and Secondary iLink addresses will be distributed to the Class A Clearing firms. There will be no change to the ports and passwords for each session, or the Disaster Recovery addresses. CME Group has distributed the new primary and secondary iLink IP addresses to all Class A Clearing firms. They are also available via the Firm Administrator Dashboard. Clearing firms are responsible for communicating the new IPs to their customer firms to prepare for this migration.

       In addition, all new Session IDs will include both the current session information as well as the address for the new data center.


      CME Globex Network Migration to New Data Center
      Once all Production iLink IP addresses have been migrated, this second phase will begin and the CME Globex network will be moved to the new data center. More information will be provided as it becomes available.


      client impact overview is now available and provides further information on this migration.
