Cloud Simulation


Does the T7 Cloud environment provide the same functionality as the normal test market?

The functionality of the offered interfaces is equal. However, there is no post-trade environment attached and no access to the various GUIs. It is designed to support our members & ISVs software development.

Do I understand it correctly, we get our “own” market and no other ISV’s/members are active there?

Correct, each customer opens its own T7 instance and you’ll have a preconfigured number of IDs to use for test trading.

Do we need to pay the rate even though we already pay for the normal test market?

Yes, as the T7 Cloud Simulation is an additional resource to the regular simulation and is non-negotiable.

How is the per hour rate controlled? Upon connect regardless of activity?

The tracker starts with the login/connect (its similar to a parking pricing scheme). There is also an automatic 4-hour logoff feature to protect you from accruing too high fees if you forget to logoff (this can be extended for two hours, within 60 minutes of an instances scheduled expiration).

Is there a known limitations list for the T7 Cloud environment?

Slide 7 of this presentation address these issues T7 Cloud Simulation - On-demand access simulation (English only) (Download, PDF, 304.62 kB). This presentation also provides a nice overview of the T7 Cloud offering.

How do we connect/access the T7 Cloud environment?

Connectivity is available via SSL or IPSEC encrypted VPN connections over your choice of internet connection.  For more information on N7 connectivity options, please contact your Technical Key Account Manager or Deutsche Börse Group’s Access Products (

Is there a monthly charge to access CloudSim via a dedicated channel on my N7 connection?

Yes.  There is a €900 charge per month, in addition to hourly CloudSim usage fees.

Are there any installation fees for an N7 connection?


Can I get a channel larger than 10Mb?

No.  But you may request more than one channel.  Please contact Access Products ( for more info)

Are there any fees to cancel my N7 CloudSim channel?

Only if you cancel within the first 12 months.  N7 CloudSim connectivity requires a 12 month contract.

Are CloudSim usage fees and CloudSim N7 connection fees different?

Yes.  CloudSim usage fees are the same €22 per hour, whether you choose to connect to your instance over the internet, or via an N7 channel.  N7 channel connectivity is a separate, recurring monthly charge of €900.

N7 is secure, do I still need to support end-to-end encryption (IPSEC) & encapsulation (GRE) if I connect to my instance via N7?

Yes, you do. CloudSim is hosted on a public cloud provider’s infrastructure.  All connections, regardless of source, must be encrypted & encapsulated using GRE encapsulation, and IPSEC encryption.

If I have a dedicated CloudSim N7 connection, can I still use the Internet to connect to an instance from my remote location?

You can.  When creating an instance, simply select which IP addressing you wish to use, N7 or internet-based.  Please note:  You may only connect to internet-based instances via the internet, and N7-based instances via your N7 channel.

Can I connect to CloudSim via my colo v2.0 10Gbs connections?

No.  These connections are not channelized, and do not support N7 CloudSim connectivity.
