Hedge funds embracing cloud computing

Monday, August 01, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update - Eze Castle Integration has seen an increase in the number of hedge funds embracing cloud computing, reporting that 130 customers are now using the firm’s cloud for storing information.

The firm, which recently opened a New Jersey based data center at QTS, says that firm expansion is being driven by demand for cloud based services.

“We have seen evidence of the growing demand for the private cloud as well as technology and compliance solutions to meet the requirements of Dodd-Frank,” said Bob Guilbert, managing director of Eze Castle Integration in a statement released by the firm on Monday. “As new customers from around the world come to Eze Castle, we continue to prove that we can deliver the solutions and services that meet their needs.”

Perhaps the greatest feature of moving information to the cloud is that companies are freed from having their data tied to a physical location. The increasing global uncertainty may benefit cloud computing firms, as the ability to access information securely from remote areas makes disaster and business continuity planning even easier. Opalesque had heard that at the end of last week JP Morgan emailed employees to make sure that their emergency contacts and procedures were all in place, which we took to be an expression of concern in case the debt ceiling debate was not finished. Hedge fund firms with their data stored (either all or in parts) on the cloud are less exposed to problems such as natural or man made disasters.
