Aggressive Cloud Strategy Proved its Mettle During Pandemic – Brad Peterson, Nasdaq CIO & CTO

Nasdaq Inc.’s enterprise technology leader (Brad Peterson, the exchange operator’s executive vice president and chief technology and information officer) said an aggressive cloud strategy that proved its mettle during the pandemic helped gird the exchange operator’s systems for shocks like this week’s market turmoil. Brad Peterson, the exchange operator’s executive vice president and chief technology and information officer, said the company used prior peaks in trading activity as benchmarks to ensure it had enough computing capacity in its own data centers to handle sharp swings in demand. But the exchange operator also lightened the load by shifting data-intensive processing and storage apps onto the cloud, which can be scaled on demand.

Nasdaq’s Ongoing Investments in Cloud allow it to Quickly adjust to these Kinds of Events – Brad Peterson, Nasdaq CIO & CTO

Mr. Peterson said the company’s ongoing investments in the cloud allow it to quickly adjust to these kinds of events. Cloud systems and apps are hosted on data centers operated by third-party providers, including tech giants such as Amazon.com, Microsoft Corp. and Alphabet Inc.’s Google, that enable users to rapidly scale computing needs, based on demand, with far greater ease than in their data centers. Nasdaq’s 10-year plan to migrate its markets to the cloud predates the onset of Covid-19. Last year, that included shifting a key platform, where traders access its options markets, to Amazon Web Services. Among other services, Nasdaq provides customers with a set of cloud-based tools for performing computing-heavy data analytics, such as risk calculations.

Collaboration with AWS will Improve Performance for People who use Twitter – Parag Agrawal, Chief Technology Officer of Twitter
