Hedge Funds are Outsourcing to the Cloud

But which one?

COMMENTARY

EZE CASTLE INTEGRATION

Global provider of managed IT services, Eze Castle Integration, explores the benefits, the trade-offs and the considerations of the various cloud deployment models.

The future is cloudy, but that’s a good thing

The hedge fund industry continues to thrive as assets hit a record high of $3.2 trillion last year, according to the latest figures published by Hedge Fund Research. With over 10,000 hedge funds spanning the globe today, the demand for seamless, efficient IT solutions is greater than ever before.

The combination of a changing economy and new regulations coming into effect puts pressure on internal IT teams to seek new ways to boost efficiency, remain compliant, whilst also focusing on important growth and strategic goals of the fund. So, in an industry where down time is not an option, cloud-based services are a popular choice. Most commonly delivered by a third-party provider, the cloud computing model enables firms to host their services and software applications on a web-based repository known as ‘the cloud’. The cloud has capabilities to support front, middle and back-office functions. This includes everything from business applications and client relationship management systems, to data management solutions and accounting systems.

When weighing adoption of cloud services, it is important to understand the difference between cloud deployment models, namely the private, public, and hybrid cloud.

Private cloud: the trusted answer for high-performance

With its security, privacy, and performance, the private cloud has been the go-to option for financial and investment firms that require enterprise-calibre IT infrastructure. That’s because the private cloud is the platform that provides the highest levels of performance, security, and resiliency for enterprise business functionality. Furthermore, a private cloud enables you to exercise greater control over network traffic – in terms of security, quality of service, and availability.
