Alveo introduces Postgres support to help market data infrastructure shift to the cloud

London, UK – 19th January 2021 – Today Alveo announces support for Postgres within its Prime financial data aggregation and mastering product. This increased support of open source technologies will facilitate clients running Prime in the cloud, allowing them to reduce their operating costs. Postgres has been proven to reduce overall annual infrastructure running cost by up to 65%[1].

Postgres is a leading open-source relational database that financial institutions are increasingly utilizing as they move more data management infrastructure into the cloud and are looking for cost-effective, scalable technologies to underpin those initiatives.

“Support for Postgres within Prime is in line with our overall technology roadmap which emphasizes the use of open source components combined with our unique IP in sourcing, integrating, validating and distributing financial data”, commented Mark Hermeling, CTO, Alveo. “This development follows feedback from clients, particularly from those that run Alveo in the cloud.”

“Postgres is a well-established technology that meets clients’ scalability requirements and excels in value-for-money, support and compatibility with other infrastructure components, especially in the open-source space”, commented Neil Sandle, Head of Product Management, Alveo. “Postgres has a large install base and is a common skillset. As license costs are greatly reduced, customer Capex, as well as maintenance, can also be reduced.”
