We are happy to announce VMware, in collaboration with EMC and Intel, has received the HPCwire Editor’s Choice Award for “Best Use of High-Performance Computing (HPC) in Financial Services.” The award was given based on VMware’s contribution to NYSE Euronext’s Capital Markets Community Platform, an infrastructure-as-a-service that offers a secure, cost-effective environment for hosting industry-specific applications and disaster recovery strategies.

Last month, we highlighted NYSE Euronext as part of our Another VMware Cloud campaign. In the blog, we discussed how NYSE Technologies was able to not only create this industry-first community cloud, but also how the use of a VMware-based cloud offering helped position NYSE Euronext as a leader within the capital markets. With EMC and VMware technology, the NYSE Capital Markets Community Platform provides customers with:

  • Faster time to market;
  • Highly scalable infrastructure to handle growth and changing requirements;
  • Lower costs;
  • World class security;
  • Simplified access to a broad range of services; and
  • Flexible solutions for differing market needs.

It’s an honor to be selected by the readers of HPCwire, and we thank the panel of editors and HPC luminaries for choosing VMware and EMC to receive this recognition.
