Cloud Architecture Elements

Technology components for building a unified cloud infrastructure to support your hedge fund or investment firm


When looking at the components of a cloud infrastructure, technology from Cisco, NetApp and VMware is often used based on the strong integration between these solutions. A cloud environment using technology from these vendors would typically include:

  • Virtualization via VMware vSphere, which enables significant resource consolidation
  • Server infrastructure with Cisco that integrates compute resources and combines compute, network, storage access and virtualization into a single system
  • Converged data center fabric with Cisco Nexus to consolidate all network traffic onto a single architecture
  • Storage architecture via NetApp that features enhanced efficiency with deduplication, thin provisioning, cloning, and backup/recovery

Here is a sample cloud architecture:
