Hybrid Clouds, Tailored Solutions
We have helped many organizations migrate to hybrid cloud environments leveraging services from Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. Recently, we helped a high frequency trading firm overcome the limitations of their on-prem infrastructure by creating a high performance, hybrid-cloud solution leveraging AWS. This platform was used by data scientists to analyze trade execution pathways across various exchanges.
Given the sensitive nature of our client’s business, we implemented a “zero trust” environment with a Layer 7 firewall that interrogated every packet flowing between their on-prem and AWS environments. This proved to be very challenging when it came to certificate validation and managing external resources available via the internet. We also had to develop a custom library in python that managed SSO between Snowflake, their on-prem Active Directory, and AWS. Using Elastic Map Reduce we created a high performance, on-demand ETL layer that was responsible for terabytes of daily processing. Access for data scientists was provided via Jupyter notebooks. All of our cloud infrastructure was automated via Terraform.
