Deploy all-flash infrastructure for all your active data sets. VAST's new advancements in commodity flash management, data protection and reduction deliver a lower TCO than hybrid storage alternatives.
An Engine for Alpha Generation
Universal Storage is the data foundation trusted by many of the world’s leading quantitative and systematic trading teams—providing a competitive edge vs trading strategies built on legacy architectures. VAST Data solutions accelerate everything from Monte Carlo to Machine Learning, giving real-time insight into all your options, equity and crypto strategies.
Get the power of a high-performance file system with the simplicity of a NAS and the scalability, capability and affordability of a data lake. Universal Storage is a next-generation distributed data store, unifying file and object storage in one simple to deploy, all-flash system.
Winning trading strategies suffer on legacy architectures.
Market volatility. Alternative data. Synthetic data for machine learning training. Crypto. Trading firms are dealing with unprecedented data growth, generated by a diverse set of data sources that all represent new opportunities to manage risk and generate alpha. Now more than ever, research and trading strategies are being compromised by data storage technologies that impose tradeoffs. Performance and capacity tradeoffs. Scale and simplicity tradeoffs. Compromised infrastructure has compromised the market’s opportunity to maximize alpha, until now.
While market datasets have grown fast, the need to access this data has grown faster. VAST's Universal Storage provides the unlimited data access for firms who are running compute grids of hundreds and even thousands of machines. When these grid environments and their GPUs that support machine learning are exposed to rich datasets with infinite scalability, a firms ability to gain rich insights and higher correlation from research archives grows exponentially.
VAST makes a difference on how quickly Jump can access what they need when they need it. VAST has changed the economics of flash storage, making it affordable at large scale — and less expensive for all kinds of data and data sets. We're reassured to be partnered with a company that is well-capitalized and growing.
One tier for all of your research data.
For the first time in 20 years, a new type of distributed system architecture has been introduced. VAST’s Disaggregated and Shared Everything (DASE) storage system was built from the ground up to eliminate the tradeoffs imposed by legacy scale-out architectures. The Universal Storage system was engineered to be fast enough for your most demanding pipelines, scalable enough for all your trading data and affordable enough that you never need to think about storage tiering again.
