Singapore, Singapore, February 25, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Infinet Financial Systems (IFS) has today announced the market availability of a fully virtualized edition of its market leading Adaptive Trading Platform (ATP) technology – the ATP machine management extender (ATPmmX).
“ATPmmX is another first for IFS,” said Stephen Phillips CEO, Infinet. “And also a first for the industry, this will enable any enterprise with a Trading room of any type to look at what the ATPmmX offers with regards to lower cost and faster on-boarding for their operation, as well as giving them a clear path to move to an as-a-Service (aaS) environment if they wish to do so,” continued Phillips.
The ATPmmX takes all the key management components of the ATP and puts them fully into a hosted or cloud VMware environment, including configuration, border controller and security. It now allows any VMware compatible service provider to use ATP to move into the Trading Voice environment or for any company with existing equipment to move off floor to a managed service easily with an industry standard solution.
“The level of hardware abstraction and ease of migration to a new platform for backup or maintenance are huge benefits,” said Huw Williams, CTO of IFS. “And this is not even considering the potential for easing a path of growth at cost levels unheard of in the industry, consolidating workload, improving remote management and allowing system segmentation of discrete solutions, Trader Voice can now be seen to be leading some of the latest models of system deployment.”
“IFS leadership in the deployment of fully distributed systems has moved a stage further, removing the need for any dedicated premise based infrastructure in the normal control and planning area of a Trader Voice system, as well as associated operational overheads,” said Phillips “so much so, that we will simply not expect our customers to pay for this and instead simply ask them to invest only at the Trading position, in front of the user, where most advantage can be gained,"
continued Phillips. "The ATP platform can now deliver all the scalability, reliability and security that one would expect of fully distributed systems and do so with a much smaller footprint, faster installation and lower maintenance effort in all aspects. This will become more and more important as customers need greater flexibility and adaptability in their systems, something that is continuing to be a challenge to the more traditional centralized deployment approach. This is yet another step in moving IFS toward being a software only company."
IFS is rolling ATPmmX out in major financial centers, through its set of partners, in the next month and will look to use it to move into more service and cloud orientated architectures in the next quarter with the focus on the major financial centers of New York and London.
