Data Centres- The financial markets backbone
85% of the world’s computing capacity sits idle at any given moment yet consumes perhaps $250 billion in power ( Alex Steffen- World Changing)
Data centre optimisation is a multi-layered approach to effectively maximise an organisation's technology resources and objectives through cost, performance and environmental studies. A structured approach to designing an efficient networking, server and storage environment supported by an effective power and cooling system for your data centre means that you can achieve your current goals whilst enabling flexibility to manage for future growth.
To meet the demand in today’s increasingly electronic trading environment for the fastest connections to all markets, Data centres for financial markets need to facilitate the community of buy side, sell side, exchange clients and managed service providers with low-latency colocation services. Data centre design needs to demonstrate the highest levels of security, have robust connectivity, flexible configuration capabilities and ultra-low latency access to market data. As these data centres continue to move to multi-core, multi-processor servers and high-speed storage systems, technology managers should make sure that the connections among servers/between servers, storage, networks and connectivity are not creating a bottleneck that affects optimum trade execution performance.
