Time for some good news! From the financial world, this time. LiquidityBook today announced the completion of its migration to Amazon Web Services datacenters globally.
The company is a leading SaaS based provider of buy and sell side trading solutions.
This migration now allows LiquidityBook to maintain a presence in AWS regions in the US and Europe, with the ability to quickly scale up globally across Europe, the US, Asia Pacific and Latin America, as and when client needs arise.
Chief Architect Andy Carroll was brought on earlier this year to lead the AWS migration effort, and this is what he had to say on this milestone achievement:
“We were an early adopter of the web for both the front- and back-end of our platform for multiple reasons – simplicity, extensibility, flexibility and scalability to name a few. Amazon has been a fantastic partner for us since we developed our next-gen platform, and we’re very happy to have moved our full infrastructure to it to create a fully-resilient data center mesh globally.”
LiquidityBook offers a full suite of buy and sell side solutions that support the full trade lifecycle — from order management to portfolio management, execution management, and FIX network connectivity, to compliance and overall trade processing.
The company has grown rapidly in recent years, with 2016 seeing the firm set records for revenue, client wins and system volume. This full move to AWS will allow now the firm to scale quickly to meet this rapid growth.
