Gravitas Introduces Private Cloud for Alternative Asset Managers

The solution, enabled by VCE’s Vblock infrastructure, will be hosted at two Equinix datacenters.Co-sourcing platform provider Gravitas has announced its Gravitas Private Cloud solution, a secure hosted solution for alternative asset managers based on converged infrastructure systems from platform provider VCE.Housed in the SSAE 16-compliant Equinix NY4 datacenter in New Jersey, with an additional location to be added at the Equinix CH4 in Chicago, the private cloud is offered as a turnkey solution for startup funds, and a secure multitenant environment capable of hosting, development, and disaster recovery for established funds.

"With the Gravitas Private Cloud, alternative asset managers have the opportunity to utilize infrastructure-as-a-service and have more flexibility to scale up or down as needed without security concerns. They can be assured that their technology will be as nimble and reliable as their investment decisions," says Gravitas CEO Jayesh Punater.

Meanwhile, VCE’s Vblock Systems will be employed to provide sufficient isolation of client data. "Fully virtualized Vblock systems are an ideal foundation for asset managers to build cloud infrastructures that support mission-critical applications securely and confidently, while providing the agility, efficiency and performance so important for today's enterprise IT operations," says Frank Hauck, president at VCE.
