There are a lot of new types of resources being delivered through a cloud model. Data points, desktops and even entire applications are pushed from powerfully connected data center platforms. In the financial, mission-critical software world, it’s going to be absolutely necessary to deploy Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions with absolute uptime. With that in mind, meet Linedata.

Founded more than a decade ago, the company has always strived to be at the frontlines of innovation. It was a pioneer in bringing the SaaS platform to the financial industry, among many other notable accomplishments.

From pre-trade to post-settlement, the company offers comprehensive front-to-back solutions to manage all types of investment processes. Today, Linedata has more than 900 employees worldwide that serve 700 clients operating in 50 countries.

This financial services organization needed a way to deploy powerful workloads through a distributed cloud model. When the company acquired the Longview Group in 2001, the new business unit foresaw an opportunity for front-office hosting and began working toward offering its Order Management System, LongView Trading System, as part of its already established SaaS delivery model.

To support its SaaS offering, Linedata needed a world-class data center and a trustworthy network carrier. In this case study from CenturyLink, we learn how they found just that.

Download this case study today to find out how, after evaluating numerous companies, Linedata knew that CenturyLink Technology Solutions had everything it was looking for and more.

“From the start, CenturyLink demonstrated a strong understanding of the financial services market — we knew this wasn’t your average hosting and colocation provider,” said Toby Battell, Director of Hosted Infrastructure. “CenturyLink has a customer support team dedicated specifically to the financial vertical. When you call the CenturyLink Financial help desk they immediately ‘get it,’ and this was exactly the kind of partner we wanted to be working with.”

For organizations looking to expand and better operate within their vertical, it’s critical to work with a data center and colocation provider which can match the speed of your business. Looking ahead, Linedata is eager to continue expanding its use of CenturyLink colocation services.

As always, make sure your data center partner is capable of keeping up with your ever-evolving business demands and the demands of the industry.
