Where are Alpaca’s Data Center (or Centers) located?
stream.data.alpaca.markets resolves to 22.214.171.124, which seems to be at Cogent Communications data center in NYC.
api.alpaca.markets resolves to 126.96.36.199, which seems to be a Google LLC data center in Mountain View, CA.
Are these correct?
Are orders really routed from my location to CA to NYC? That would be a lot of unnecessary latency. Why not locate your order-taking servers with your quote feed servers in NYC, close to the exchanges?
