If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that even though many of us have been kept apart, proximity is still everything.
While we were all stuck at home, the markets kept moving. The global economic crash that many feared at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic looked like it was going to come rushing at us, but in the end the markets recovered and in reverse of our predictions, ultimately saw growth. Thus, many firms have heavily considered the expansion of their trading footprint into new geographies and exchanges.
But one question still remains: how does a firm manage access and infrastructure from the other side of the world, while ensuring its business is streamlined for the future and travel remains uncertain? Servers are needed next to the exchanges, yet firms are struggling to place a multitude of teams in all the global market cities to manage them. Firms need a service that is dependable and a team that can enable them to efficiently access the markets.
The path forward is Infrastructure as a Service.
Using an Infrastructure as a Service, or IaaS, solution can ensure you have the right configurations of servers in all locations you require. Need three bare metal boxes in London? Done. With terabyte solid state drives and high-end network cards? Sure. What about eight virtual servers in New York? Easy. What if you needed a combination of dedicated bare metal with multiple specs plus a handful of VMs, and you need them in Tokyo? No problem. IaaS is the answer to all your requirements.
