Hibernia Atlantic is connecting its global network into Amazon’s AWS cloud platform, via the latter’s AWS Direct Connect facility, which provides higher bandwidth and possibly lower costs, compared to internet connectivity.
AWS Direct Connect is available at several Amazon platform instances, including those in New York City, Virginia, California, plus London in the UK and San Paulo in Brazil.
Such connectivity could be of interest to financial markets firms looking to run applications on cloud infrastructure, such as back testing and creation of quantitative models. Such applications generally require access to large volumes of time series data.
