A-Team Webinar to Discuss Adding Cloud to High Performance Trading Infrastructure

Subscribe to our newsletter

The cloud is playing an ever greater role in financial markets, and firms across the sector – buy side, sell side and trading venues – are increasingly looking at how to make best use of it within their trading infrastructure, given the benefits that cloud offers in terms of its elasticity & scalability, the rapid development and deployment of cloud-native solutions, the accessibility and distribution of data on the cloud, and the wide range of analytics that are now available on tap.

However, questions remain about the suitability of the cloud for high performance trading, particularly for latency-sensitive firms who require deterministic high speed when ingesting market data and executing trades. Another challenge revolves around multicast, which firms rely on almost exclusively for the distribution of market data.

In A-Team’s webinar on 13th September sponsored by ICE Data Services, ‘Adding cloud to your high performance trading infrastructure’, panelists Habib R. Shaikh, Director & Global Head High Performance Low Latency Electronic Trading Infrastructure at  Credit Suisse, Henk D’Hoore, Senior Director, Feeds Product Management at ICE Data Services, and Ben Newton, Associate Partner at Synechron, will discuss why firms are moving towards the cloud for high performance trading infrastructure, the challenges they face, and what strategies firms are adopting to overcome those challenges, particularly around low-latency market data.

We hope you will be able to join us for what should be an interesting and thought-provoking discussion.
