Colt Expands Nordic PrizmNet Footprint

News


Verne Global, a provider of highly optimised, secure, and 100% renewably-powered data center solutions, announced that Colt has expanded its presence within its Icelandic data center by adding Colt PrizmNet as part of its on-net offering.

Colt PrizmNet is a financial extranet that connects a global capital markets ecosystem of 85+ exchanges, venues and service providers and 10,000+ participants. It provides connectivity to all major venues, ensuring best execution and visibility into global markets - increasing algorithmic trading efficiency.
Adding access to Verne Global's campus is designed to help clients with cost savings and the growing requirement for computationally intensive technologies such as high-performance computing (HPC) and grid applications. Iceland's data privacy laws will also enable Colt's financial customers to meet regulatory requirements for secure data storage and the ability to monitor and manage new cyber security risks. In today's highly competitive financial markets, firms are seeing an increasing demand for data and analytics that is driving the need for more compute resources and higher capital and operational costs. This move enables Colt to address the following customer needs and market opportunities:

"We are seeing tremendous growth in customer need for data from executable sources, as well as storage and risk modelling analytic tools, as new regulations continue to overhaul the market risk capital requirements," said Andrew Housden, VP Capital Markets at Colt. "Our partnership with Verne Global provides Colt customers with access to Iceland's abundance of renewable energy, making it a prime location for the growing demands for big data storage and non-latency sensitive services. We can now offer dedicated hosting in Iceland for firms that require high density cooling and processing, giving them the ability to optimise and scale their intensive compute applications, meet regulatory compliance requirements, and lower their operational costs and carbon footprint with no premium for going green."


"The financial markets are increasingly relying on artificial intelligence and machine learning as an essential element of that, to manage the development of trading strategies requiring the analysis and interpretation of large structured and unstructured data sets," said Stef Weegels, Sales Director, Finance & Capital Markets at Verne Global. "Verne Global's HPC-optimised location provides the infrastructure, access to abundant, low-cost power, and technical expertise to help companies capitalise on these developments safely and securely."

Verne Global's data center, located on a former NATO campus in Iceland, draws its electricity from hydroelectric and geothermal energy. The cool, temperate climate in Iceland enables free cooling, that when combined with the low-cost, renewable power, means companies can save more than 70% on the total cost of operations for their compute resources over traditional financial hubs like London, Frankfurt and New York.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
