Gravitasâ decision to procure a dedicated space stems from the growing need for both large and small hedge funds to outsource cumbersome back-office infrastructure and implement disaster recovery of key systems.
âGravitasâ expansion of its colocation service will offer a solution to even the smallest hedge funds, allowing them to add scalability and flexibility to their infrastructure and operations,â said Jayesh Punater, CEO of Gravitas Technology. âThis solution will make colocation, which many large funds have recently embraced, a viable, accessible, and affordable option for funds of any size, allowing managers to implement business continuity planning and backup for critical systems and applications, besides being able to outsource their primary data center.â
As workforces become more mobile and geographically distributed, colocation of infrastructure allows hedge fund managers to remain dynamic and scale operations to meet market trends without being limited to a physical location. âIn keeping with our white glove, dedicated services, Gravitas chose Equinix, a premier, best-of-breed facility to offer colocation solutions to our hedge fund clients,â said Brandon Travan, Director of Engineering at Gravitas Technology.
âColocating at a world-class facility provides a fund with direct access to all the top-tier telecommunications providers as well as low-latency proximity to trading partners,â said Travan. âAs hedge funds increasingly focus on operational risk and disaster recovery plans, decoupling servers and other infrastructure equipment from the office environment and moving into secure, hardened and remote facilities is the forward-looking business decision for the serious hedge fund manager.â
Creating a colocation solution for small to mid-size hedge funds continues Gravitasâ rollout of innovative, next-generation consulting services.
