CCFE and its service providers are committed to being industry leaders in trading platform availability. This commitment is met by a highly resistant network architecture that is designed to recover quickly with no loss of data should any component of the architecture fail. Disaster Recovery procedures are periodically tested to ensure the marketplace can continue to function in the event of an unplanned outage.
Disaster Recovery Information for the CCFE Futures and Options Platform provided by ICE Technology:
The trading platform and disaster recovery site reside in separate geographical locations (Chicago and Atlanta) to protect the marketplace from being significantly impacted by an area wide outage.
In the event of an unplanned outage, CCFE may determine the necessity to recover the trading system to the disaster recovery site. If this procedure is initiated, the existing "Exchange" login on the CCFE homepage will automatically forward customers to the disaster recovery site.
Chicago Climate Futures Exchange (CCFE) announced plans to wind down operations in August of 2011. Effective as of February 28, 2012 there is no remaining open interest in contracts at CCFE and all contracts have been delisted.
