Eze Castle Integration Expands Its Cloud Computing Services, Reaches New Milestones
Investment Management Firms Rely on the Eze Cloud to Increase Business Agility, Reduce Operating Costs, Simplify IT Infrastructure and Application Management
BOSTON, September 14, 2010 – Eze Castle Integration, Inc., a leading provider of IT services, consulting and technology to hedge funds and alternative investment management firms, today announced it has surpassed 30 applications in its hosted infrastructure, a new milestone for the Eze Cloud environment. The company also announced it was named a recommended hosting provider for ConvergEx Group’s Eze OMS™, an award-winning order management system.
Firms are increasingly looking at cloud hosting solutions that bundle facilities, network, storage and on-demand capacity to reduce operating costs, simplify IT operations and improve flexibility. Eze Castle Integration’s Eze Cloud was custom built for the alternative investment market and has supported more than 30 critical business applications, including Eze OMS. As a recommended infrastructure provider for ConvergEx’s Eze OMS, Eze Castle Integration can offer firms fully outsourced management of the Eze OMS environment so they can focus on other business priorities.
Eze Castle’s cloud computing services not only allow investment management firms greater flexibility and choice, they also reduce the risk associated with ongoing IT management and eliminate the need for firms to purchase and create their own data center infrastructures. Eze Castle delivers a range of offerings via the Eze Cloud, including:
- Eze Virtual Office (EVO), a hosted IT solution providing firms a fully managed infrastructure and key business applications with a flat-fee subscription model;
- Eze Application Hosting, which provides the underlying environment to deliver complex financial applications, such as Eze OMS, via an infrastructure as a service model; and
- Eze Colocation facilities that are highly redundant, secure and close in proximity to financial hubs.
Bob Guilbert, managing director of Eze Castle Integration, said, “Eze Castle Integration believes in the power of cloud computing-based solutions and the advantages they provide to alternative investment firms. We are committed to investing in our cloud infrastructure, expanding our ecosystem of cloud services and forging partnerships with industry leaders like ConvergEx Group to test and validate new cloud-hosted applications. We will continue to deliver solutions that intertwine our values of accountability, superior technology and premier client service in every offering we bring to market.”
