Optimising Infrastructure Architecture for HPC in the Capital Markets

Posted by Adam Nethersole

GREYSPARK WHITEPAPER FOR FINANCIAL SERVICES - 2018

GreySpark Partners presents a whitepaper designed to provide investment bank chief technology officers with the means to determine the best type of infrastructure provider to support their company’s high-performance computing (HPC) needs.

The demand for high-compute power in the capital markets industry grew dramatically in recent years as financial services firms strived to garner competitive advantage over their peers. In 2018, many financial institutions are observed struggling to meet that demand with on-premise infrastructure and, consequently, they are enthusiastically embracing the cloud paradigm. However, utilising a hyper-scale public cloud service is not the only alternative open to CTOs seeking to resolve their company’s HPC infrastructure shortfall.

This whitepaper examines the four types of infrastructure provisioning models available to banks and trading firms – specifically, on-premise infrastructure, hyper-scale public cloud services, colocation services and bare metal-as-a-service. GreySpark argues that, for some HPC services, engaging with a colocation or bare metal-as-a-service provider might prove the optimal infrastructure provisioning approach for specific types of capital markets firms.
