Bloomberg B-Pipe can be rapidly deployed on AWS
B-PIPE is a real-time datafeed providing programmatic access to Bloomberg’s complete catalog of content (all the same asset classes as the Bloomberg Terminal). Network connectivity with Bloomberg B-PIPE is simple as it leverages AWS PrivateLink, exposing the services a set of local IP addresses within the customer's subnet and eliminating DNS issues. B-PIPE services are presented via network load-balancers to further simplify the architecture.
Customers do not have to install any Bloomberg equipment or circuits to connect. They can thereby expect to save thousands of dollars a month on connectivity costs and reduce installation time from months to minutes.
Bloomberg is an APN Technology Partner.
AWS-hosted B-PIPE provides unfettered access to the entire Bloomberg universe of content via API
Easy access to data: Connecting to Bloomberg via AWS PrivateLink is the easier, faster alternative to on-premises deployment, which requires customers to install two Bloomberg circuits, servers, and switches in their hosting site, consuming rack space and network ports, incurring extra costs, and spending weeks and months to ship, install. and configure
Breadth of available data: Consolidates data from more than 330 exchanges and 5,000 pricing contributors globally (35 million instruments across all asset classes, including Equity, Foreign Exchange & Money Markets, Fixed Income, Commodities and Derivatives), normalizes the data in Bloomberg data centers, and delivers it to client applications via a common API
Achieve scalability: Infrastructure in more than 110 countries delivers more than 80 billion ticks per day to more than 15,000 customer locations
Improve resiliency: The B-PIPE solution is designed for high resiliency and availability, residing in a Bloomberg VPC spanning 3 Availability Zones (AZs), each hosting a fleet of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud instances running Bloomberg’s data distribution servers
