The potential of hybrid cloud
In an environment where customer trust and meeting compliance requirements are paramount to business success, technology is playing an increasingly important role. This is especially evident in the increased adoption of cloud — the latest research from HFM Technology has found that 53% of hedge funds are using private cloud, while 27% are using hybrid.
So what makes hybrid cloud such an attractive prospect?
- Reduce IT costs
- Enhance security
- Improve agility
- Consistent performance
- Free up IT resources
- Effective disaster recovery options
While security remains a key concern for those migrating to the cloud, as the technology has matured, so have attitudes. Particularly as IT managers are seeing the value in blending cloud services with dedicated IT estates to optimise their environment.
