T7 Cloud Simulation

Deutsche Boerse Welcomes

The T7 Cloud Simulation environment is an on-demand simulation environment providing members with access to a dedicated instance of Deutsche Boerse Group's T7 trading architecture for testing and development purposes.

Choice of environment
The T7 Cloud Simulation offers flexible access to two distinct T7 simulation environments:

  • Pre-release simulation allows for pre-production testing of future release versions.
  • Production simulation allows for testing in the current production version of Deutsche Boerse Group's T7.

Choice of interface
The T7 Cloud Simulation currently offers on-demand access to:

  • Reference Data Interface (RDI)
  • Enhanced Transaction Interface (ETI)
  • FIX Gateway
  • Enhanced Market Data Interface (EMDI)
  • Market Data Interface (MDI)
  • Enhanced Order Book Interface (EOBI)

Choice of connection
Our T7 Cloud Simulation environment provides quick access 24/7 using an SSL-encrypted internet connection or an IPsec/GRE tunnel.

Further information is available here: Cloud Simulation Introduction Slides

If you have any questions we would be happy to hear from you.

  • New 7.0 images for both Xetra and Eurex
  • Published: Fri, 16 Nov 2018 18:57:49 GMT
    New 7.0 (simulation) images for both Eurex and Xetra have just gone live. These include changes to some data types in market data feeds, including EMDI, and you must use the new templates from the link above to decode them. By request, we have left the previous images there for now but the market data feeds from those images are no longer current so please use the new images where possible. Our Cloud Provider problems broke the CD mechanism that usually prevents CloudSim from getting out of step with public simulation, and we're sorry for that but we're working hard behind the scenes to mitigate the problems and really appreciate your patience in this trying time.
  • Maintenance extended by one hour
  • Published: Tue, 13 Nov 2018 20:07:07 GMT
    Our cloud provider has extended their maintenance window to 21:00 UTC (3pm Chicago time, 4pm New York time)
  • Cloud provider maintenance
  • Published: Tue, 13 Nov 2018 19:36:12 GMT
    Our Cloud provider has announced an extended maintenance window while they address the orchestration issues we've seen over the past few days. They expect to be back to normal by 20:00 UTC, but in the meantime you will see intermittent failures to start and stop instances.
  • Continuing IPsec connectivity issues; Capacity and performance restored
  • Published: Thu, 08 Nov 2018 16:16:27 GMT
    We are very sorry for the ongoing IPsec connectivity issues. We know it's causing some of you real pain, and we continue to work both with our providers and on a viable workaround for the problem. In other news, our cloud provider capacity and performance issues should now be permanently resolved.
  • Service degradation
  • Published: Tue, 23 Oct 2018 19:06:31 GMT
    Our service provider is experiencing capacity problems at the moment and has been unable to provide an estimate for when things will return to normal. Users will experience problems starting instances, which will appear permanently stuck in the "stopped" state. We're sorry for the degradation and ask that you continue to try launching instances when one fails.
  • 678-515-2690
  • Published: Fri, 12 Oct 2018 17:05:14 GMT
    We just became aware of an issue in the 7.0 images that prevents IPsec connectivity. We're actively working on a fix, but we're not currently sure when it will be available again, so please use SSL for the time being. We're very sorry for the limited connectivity options at the moment, and will update you here as soon as the problem has been resolved.
  • T7 7.0 Simulation images with Mass Cancellation scenarios
  • Published: Fri, 05 Oct 2018 22:34:30 GMT
    New images for both Eurex and Xetra 7.0 Simulation are available for use. They solve the known limitations regarding Mass Cancellation scenarios.
  • Cloud Provider Issues
  • Published: Tue, 25 Sep 2018 13:54:43 GMT
    Our Cloud Provider has experienced ongoing issues over the past two days, with the observable impact that some instances will be created and then stuck in the 'stopped' state. We're very sorry for the problems you've experienced, and we're actively working with them to get a solution in place as a matter of urgency.
  • T7 7.0 images now contain the FIX gateway
  • Published: Wed, 05 Sep 2018 18:32:33 GMT
    The T7 7.0 images now contain a FIX gateway!
  • (309) 528-8982
  • Published: Fri, 31 Aug 2018 15:07:48 GMT
    The preliminary versions of both Eurex and Xetra 7.0 are now available for use. Please note that the ETI User IDs may have changed with this release and you should check on the Instance Control homepage.

  • Published: Tue, 21 Aug 2018 13:45:53 GMT
    Over the past two weeks, our cloud provider (CloudSigma) has experienced intermittent capacity issues, affecting the availability of T7 Cloud Simulation. We are working closely with them in an effort to avoid the problems recurring, and we are actively monitoring the state of instances. If you create an instance and find that it becomes stuck in the "stopped" state, please contact your TKAM. They will escalate the issue immediately.

  • 203-948-2079
  • Published: Mon, 21 May 2018 15:10:55 GMT
    To keep up with public simulation, a new version of the baseline software for both Xetra and Eurex has been released. The only observable difference is that the HF gateway no longer exists, so please connect to either the LF gateway or the PS gateway instead. This is consistent with 6.1 simulation and production.

  • Published: Thu, 05 Apr 2018 21:21:00 GMT
    We are aware of an issue that occasionally means the exchange takes up to 20 minutes to come up (as opposed to the more usual 7 or 8 minutes) and we're actively investigating that with our Cloud Provider but in the meantime, please allow a little longer than usual for the exchange to start, and remember that we do not start charging until the exchange is up.
  • Additional Low Frequency ETI Sessions
  • Published: Fri, 19 Jan 2018 17:06:09 GMT
    An additional LF ETI session has been created for each ESIM* member. The new session names are in the format of ESIM*_SLF_S3. Please refer to your Instance Control home page for the new session IDs.

  • New Instance Control Features
  • Published: Wed, 13 Dec 2017 09:56:32 GMT

    We are happy to announce three new features available in Instance Control for all Eurex and Xetra environments:

    Instance network captures (in PCAP format) are now available on Instance Control's "Logs" page, using the new "Download all activity" button. These files contain all network traffic passing through the tunnel.

    The "Instance Management" page has been recreated to allow more control over the T7 backend processes, and allows the simulation of advanced failover and recovery scenarios.

    New facilities for testing Mass Cancellations can now be found by visiting the "Scenarios" page, and then using the new "Mass Cancellations" option on the left hand side of the page. This scenario page allows you to trigger ETI Mass Cancellation notification and event messages for a variety of MassActionReason codes.
