Case study

Equiduct

Background

  • Equiduct provides a fast and cost-effective trading platform for European equities. Its technology is designed to provide order execution at the best price
  • They bring together retail brokers with dedicated market makers to provide retail investors with best execution on a pan-European Regulated Market

The Need for IT Monitoring System

  • They needed a high performance, distributed monitoring system to give a unified presentation of network and systems telemetry from their London-based datacenters
  • Equiduct also anticipated the rapid growth of their IT environment, so they wanted to avoid the expense and complexity of a per-node pricing model

Why Opsview Worked As a Solution

  • Extended functionality to allow service definition by business-related groups, detailed trend analysis and SNMP trap processing all in a single, normalized interface
  • Manages multiple levels of infrastructure from hardware to mission-critical, real-time applications
  • Simple subscription-based model doesn’t penalize Equiduct as they scale their IT environment
