By Kaleigh Alessandro,
Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Moving to the cloud is one of our favorite topics here on Hedge IT, and there is a compelling argument for hedge funds and alternative investment firms to consider leveraging the cloud for some or all of their infrastructure. INDOS Financial, an independent Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) depository based in London is one firm that chose to utilize the private cloud for their growing firm, and we’re excited to share their experience with you.

Watch the video below for an interview with Bill Prew, CEO and founder of INDOS Financial, as he talks about selecting the right technology infrastructure for his firm’s increasing demands.

At the end of last year, we predicted security would continue to be a hot topic in 2014 - and our experts agree. It's still such an important topic for hedge funds and investment firms to be educated on that we even dedicated our first webinar of the year to it.

Expert speakers from Eze Castle Integration and eSentire spoke earlier today about security incident response priorities and offered best practices for investment firms looking to plan before a security breach occurs.

Watch the video below and learn more about the three critical phases of security incident management:

Why Hedge Fund Data Center Selection Processes Matter

By Mary Beth Hamilton,
Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Data center facilities are at the heart of any cloud offering and, as such, are getting more scrutiny as hedge funds evaluate who the right cloud provider is for them.

Earlier this year we created a pretty infograpic that mapped what firms should look for in a colocation facility. Remember this?Hedge Fund Colocation Evauation Map

Since not everyone loves infograpics, we decided to spell out what we look for in a colocation facility. Our due diligence is extensive, but here are some of the high points.

Ownership, Operation & Support: Eze Castle Integration seeks a colocation facility that is owned and operated by a reputable organization with vast industry knowledge and experience. Additionally, the personnel and client support must be of the highest quality in order to ensure that all Eze Castle colocation clients receive the best service and support possible.

If I Were a Cloud, I'd Be...

By Mary Beth Hamilton,
Thursday, October 10th, 2013

Scalable Cloud ImageAfter reading (and enjoying) one too many “you know you’re [insert age/town/job] if you’re [insert something funny]” articles, we decided to have a little fun with our favorite technology topic – the cloud (surprise!).

So, here is how I envision life as a cloud.

I wouldn’t care what I consumed because scalability would be one of my greatest traits.  You might even catch me yelling, “More, more, more…”

Welcome MixBit (and Eze Boston!): The newest video sharing app

By Mary Beth Hamilton,
Thursday, August 8th, 2013

Every once and a while we like to deviate from our business technology and operations articles to look at a new technology that has applicability to consumers as well as businesses.  Today we look at the newly released MixBit, which in all honesty, is more applicable to consumers at this point. 

MixBit was created by the founders of YouTube and just released today for iOS.  MixBit fills the void (if you can call it that) between Vine and Instagram Video.  With Vine videos can only be 6-seconds and with Instagram they can be 15-seconds. 

MixBit not only takes the bold step of increasing the size to 16-seconds but also makes blending multiple clips together easy. 

 

Aside from the 1 second advantage, MixBit is unique in its ability to let users remix video clips with others they find on the site. 

To see what MixBit can do, I created this 16 second “tour” of our Boston office.  Nothing fancy, but certainly user-friendly.
