Understanding Financial Cloud Services: A Complete Guide for Hedge Funds
There is no question that the cloud has gained massive popularity when it comes to the world of hedge fund technology. For many hedge funds, cloud technology offers several benefits that traditional on-premise infrastructure systems do not, such as reduced capital expenditures, increased flexibility and scalability to meet changing business needs, and even enhanced security features. The shift from up-front capital expenditure associated with software licenses and hardware costs to the more controllable operational expenditures of monthly and annual contracts provides predictability from a financial perspective. It is important to remember, however, that not all clouds are created equally. When evaluating a move to the cloud, there are still several misconceptions, which can hold firms back from pursuing a cloud strategy, or cause them to select the wrong cloud model.
When beginning an evaluation of cloud services, it is imperative to understand the distinctions between the different types of cloud, as these can impact how your data is segregated, where and what type of infrastructure is used, and built-in features, such as disaster recovery, backup, and intrusion detection. As a hedge fund, it is even more important to remain conscious of these factors due to enhanced security and regulatory requirements relating to the data generated and handled by hedge funds. This whitepaper on financial cloud services is the complete guide for hedge funds, and will cover everything hedge funds need to know when moving to the cloud.
