TNS Adds Server Management to Cloud

Transaction Network Services (TNS) has extended its cloud platform with the roll out of TNS Cloud – Server Management, a service the firm says provides an end-to-end solution for trading firms and their vendors.
The new product combines TNS’ dedicated server hosting capabilities with hands-on server management, thus, the firm says, helping to “dramatically reduce clients’ trading centre complexity and costs, allowing firms to focus their human resources on mission-critical business goals and go-to-market opportunities”.
It does this by moving up the stack to provide users with a single-source suite of custom services, including operating system installation, configuration, and management; server hardware and operating system health monitoring; and user access management.
Earlier this year, TNS announced the first phase of its private TNS Cloud build-out with the launch of its dedicated server offering that optimises custom hardware deployment, trading connectivity, and server procurement.
“Up until now, trading organisations often outsourced cloud data centre services, but still had to manage their own server resources,” observes Jeff Mezger, VP of product development at TNS. “With our new Server Management, paired with TNS’ established colocation capabilities, we’re reducing complexity and breaking new ground by providing both infrastructure and end-to-end server management.
“Traders are racing toward cloud adoption, and TNS Cloud – Server Management now completes the package for clients who demand full systems management integration, stability, and security,” he adds.
