Each player in a financial services ecosystem is dealing with specific workloads with their own set of characteristics. For example, high frequency traders are like sprinters, creating short bursts of trading traffic within a single day, while capital investors are more like marathoners, generating trading traffic at a steady pace over years.
Healthcare is full of uncertainties, but an optimized IT infrastructure based on an IOA strategy built on Platform Equinix can help industry organizations ensure that superior, secure, cost-effective connectivity isn’t one of them.
Capital market companies have been one of the more cautious adopters of the cloud. However, increased pressure to reduce costs, improve margins and realize greater efficiencies are forcing today’s institutional investing firms to move their critical applications and data into the cloud.
An interconnection-first, hybrid cloud strategy offers digital payments companies greater performance, scalability, security and reliability, while enabling them to deploy their own infrastructure or leverage AWS Direct Connect on Platform Equinix™.
AWS Direct Connect is now available at Equinix in 13 global markets, and most recently, providing access to two separate regions (Dublin and London) out of our London-based LD4, LD5 and LD6 data centers.
The theme at last year’s AWS #re:Invent was “the cloud is the new normal.” Here are some highlights from these announcements that I believe will be very exciting for Equinix customers moving forward.
As the enterprise increasingly adopts cloud, more business-critical applications are moving into cloud environments, and high network performance needs to move there with them – service quality can’t be guaranteed without it. But how can companies ensure they can deliver it?
Here are four lessons learned from working with customers to help them develop and deploy hybrid IT infrastructures.
If you are starting a cloud infrastructure architecture from scratch that is isolated from existing legacy IT, then a greenfield approach allows you to maximize cloud capabilities, while factoring in other objectives like security, performance and cost.
Your initial cloud migration steps are critical as they shape the ultimate outcome of your cloud strategy. You’ll want to start with a comprehensive cloud assessment to make sure there’s no mystery or uncertainty about what is involved in your company’s cloud migration process.
