How VMware Helped NYSE

Responding to seismic changes within the global capital markets industry, NYSE Technologies leveraged VMware technology to create the new Capital Markets Community Platform. By giving clients a secure, robust, cost-effective environment for hosting industry-specific applications, this groundbreaking financial services cloud promises to drive innovation in trading applications, disaster- recovery strategies and related solutions.

With extreme latency sensitivity some services are tied to physical devices but most applications are virtualized. VMware provides the cornerstone technologies to build a hybrid cloud to service both of these models.

  • The specialized hybrid cloud lets some customers co-locate in NYSE datacenters in New Jersey or London for high-speed access to everything while others access services over the network.
  • Virtualization maximizes the utilization of compute resources, wherever they're located.
  • The specialized knowledge and technology of VMware were crucial to the success of this cloud, the first in its industry.
