REMINDER: Cboe Europe Equities: Annual Disaster Recovery Test
Overview
Cboe Europe (Cboe) will be conducting its annual disaster recovery (DR) test for the Production BXE, CXE, DXE, TRF and SIS environments on Saturday, 2nd October, 2021.

The purpose of this testing day is for Cboe to simulate various DR failover scenarios, including a test of market failover from its primary data centre at Equinix Slough (LD4) to its secondary data centre at Equinix Park Royal (LD3). Participant attendance is not mandatory but is strongly recommended as this exercise affords Participants the ability to observe how their trading, quoting, trade reporting and market data applications would function in the event of a DR incident at Cboe.

Participants should note the following:

* Change Freeze - Participants wishing to take part in the DR test must submit any outstanding requests for new ports by 16:00 UK time on Thursday 30th September. No new port requests will be processed on Friday 1st October.
* Production Data - Please ensure that your Production systems are not configured to send Production trade reports when Cboe systems come up on the morning of Saturday 2nd October, as all data from that day will be discarded as test data.
* Schedule of Activities - Disaster Recovery Testing Guide
