High Performance Computing for Financial Services
Make faster trades, stay on top of regulations and gain a competitive edge in one of HPC’s most data-intensive industries.
Survive and Thrive in a Demanding Industry
Financial services live or die by trading speed – fractions of a millisecond matter. High-frequency trading is driving a technology arms race for fastest performance in connectivity, data access and computation. And transactions must be securely retained to meet compliances – over thousands of statutes and regulations in the U.S. alone.
As a result, HPC has become a vital necessity for FSI, not just an optional upgrade. To grow revenue, increase margins and maintain compliance, you have to modernise your IT. HPE can help, through a robust, density-optimised infrastructure that gives you greater speed, scalability and agility – and a competitive advantage.
HPE Leadership across Financial Solutions
In an industry that generates more data than any other, HPE is an established leader. HPE infrastructure processes two out of every three credit card transactions globally. HPE covers the FSI transactional ecosystem from secure networks and compute to customer end-points. And we rank second in the Annual Fintech 25 by American Banker and IDC Financial Insights.
Our competitive reach benefits your traders – your business – plus, we have experts with decades of financial sector experience to help you make the transformation so you can realise those benefits quickly.
