If you are using an MT5 account you may notice that there are 3 servers displayed when trying to login:
The first two are both located in Equinix NY4 datacenter and the third one is located in an AWS (Amazon) datacenter in Ireland.
The reason Valutrades has multiple servers in NY is because they are provided by different companies so if either one has technical issues the other will most likely not.
The connection speed difference will be caused by how the client’s internet provider routes to each of these companies that both use different internet providers.
The Irish server is a further backup and can also assist some clients that have very slow direct connections to NY.
