Flux Solves Cloud Computing Workload Automation Challenges for the Financial Industry
The case study Financial Institutions Leverage Workload Automation in the Cloud details how enterprise software market leader, Primatics Financial, deployed Flux in their cloud environment to deliver the resources, transparency, and reporting features that they need to stay ahead in a demanding market, a complex and highly regulated industry.
Cloud computing offers just-in-time delivery of data, applications, and storage as services which, in turn, reduce the investment in IT infrastructure. Along with opportunity, companies are faced with challenges when it comes to balancing resources, security, and visibility.
Workload automation can orchestrate many mission-critical tasks resolving complex requirements across the enterprise. The financial sector is quickly finding that only those agile solutions built on service oriented architectures (SOA) have the open standards to broker jobs based on events, resource availability, and integration points. Meeting this requirement and more, Flux is a proven leader in sophisticated enterprise job scheduling, managed file transfer, automated dataflows, and ETL automation.
Primatics Financial finds Flux to be the perfect match
Primatics Financial is a market leader providing enterprise-grade software solutions and advisory services that address the complex regulatory, compliance and fair value needs of financial institutions. Leveraging cloud computing nearly three years ago, they needed to find a workload solution that met their challenges while continuing to provide services to some of the largest financial institutions in the world — all without missing a beat.
- Analyzing resource intensive large financial data sets accurately and quickly.
- As errors are typical occurrences in cloud environments, identification, auditing, and reporting are top-level requirements.
- Gaining quicker mean time to recovery (MTTR) is also vital.
Eric Rich, Flux Lead Developer, knows these challenges well and is a key architect of the new solutions in Flux 7.11 that take them on. "Enterprise-grade cloud computing applications must manage resource utilization and recover from problems automatically," states Rich.
Taking advantage of virtual resources, meeting 24x7 service levels, and automating growing workloads
Using visual workflow models and customized error handling solutions, Primatics Financial found Flux was the perfect match. The central web-based Flux Operations Console allowed Primatics Financial to see all processes and their current status in a single view. Logs and workflow history are now easily accessible to assist in locating and correcting errors and resource bottlenecks.
