Epsilon, a privately owned global communications service provider, was selected by hedge fund cloud specialist Hentsu to deploy its Cloud Link Exchange (CloudLX) cloud connectivity platform and support its cloud solutions for the financial community.
Hentsu will use CloudLX to deliver multiple trading connections from production trading environments in cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform directly into trading venues.
Hentsu will use CloudLX to serve the financial community in the UK, the US and Asia. Its customers around the world will benefit from on demand Ethernet with guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) and Experience (QoE). It provides systematic agility for trading and hedge funds with secure and compliant public cloud environments. CloudLX matches its vision for 'cloud-first' solutions that can meet the strict demands of the financial services industry.
"Hentsu has a unique business model that is making it simple and easy for the financial services community to migrate to the cloud. It is bridging the gap between cloud providers and trading venues, and CloudLX will provide a foundation with flexible and high performance cloud connectivity," said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon. "Both companies believe in the power of the cloud to reshape industries and are working closely together to deliver innovations that accelerate growth for customers."
CloudLX provides direct connectivity to AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure as well as other cloud service providers and global internet exchanges. Through a single port, users can connect their operations globally and access on demand Ethernet services via a self-serve portal. CloudLX's simple and intuitive user interface supports click-to-connect provisioning and the rapid management of cloud connectivity from any web browser anywhere in the world.
"CloudLX is a perfect fit for our business due to its global reach and ability to enhance the projection of our service across the world and to public cloud locations. Epsilon offers us global reach, software-defined networking, and rapid deployments matched with high performance connectivity and billing flexibility. The team understands what it takes to be successful in the cloud, and CloudLX is a platform that supports innovative services," said Marko Djukic, Managing Director at Hentsu.
Hentsu's business is growing rapidly with plans to scale its services globally with the support of CloudLX. Its solutions include Order Execution Connectivity, Real-time and Historical Data, Building and Managing Services, and Security and Compliance. Its 'cloud-first' model has been designed to deliver on demand solutions that are both scalable and secure to match the needs of the financial community.
