Torstone Technology, the UK-based provider of securities and derivatives processing software, today announced the availability of the Inferno back office system for virtual private cloud (VPC) environments such as Amazon or Rackspace.
"We believe Torstone has stolen a march on our competitors and is very early in enabling our customers to take advantage of the flexibility, resilience, scalability and cost-effectiveness of secure VPCs," says CEO Brian Collings. "This is down to the underlying architecture of Inferno as well as our in-house technologists who are equipped with the skills to engineer our solution to utilize the VPC optimally."
Torstone's virtual private network is configured and locked down at the network level so that each client has a private Inferno instance that is fully secure in the private cloud. Inferno is compatible with any industry standard Linux and Oracle cloud environment with the appropriate security.
Private cloud computing offers the ability to snapshot instances of the infrastructure required to run applications. Torstone takes advantage of this ‘run book' automation to deploy a new ready-configured instance of Inferno in a matter of hours, which can then be customized to meet individual client requirements. Torstone also offers flexibility for disaster recovery by enabling clients to mix different cloud providers or use a blend of data center hosting and cloud services.
"The infrastructure level is finally becoming a commodity service, which enables software vendors such as ourselves to focus more investment on advancing, developing and supporting financial back office systems to meet the constantly evolving needs of the industry," says Collings.
