Nasdaq plans to migrate its North American markets to AWS in 2022

This was one of the announcements this week at the AWS (Amazon Web Services) Re: Invent 2021 event. Nasdaq MRX, a United States options market, will star in the first phase of migration: to do this, it will use a new solution of Edge computing jointly designed by Nasdaq and AWS, and built specifically for market infrastructure. This solution could be used by other players to move their business systems to the cloud, and for financial crime analytics, data, and Nasdaq analytics. Adena Friedman, president and CEO of Nasdaq, said at the AWS event in Las Vegas, "This historic partnership with AWS seeks to drive a truly cloud-based market infrastructure that is more resilient, scalable, and accessible to all participants in the world market."

Another innovation at the meeting featured Goldman Sachs and AWS, which will launch a "financial cloud for data": it is a new package of cloud-based data and analytical solutions for financial institutions. Goldman Sachs CEO David Salomon said: "We are redefining the future of the cloud for financial services as we allow developers to focus on creating financial solutions for their clients."

Likewise, it was reported that United Airlines has selected AWS as its cloud service provider. In this case, the spokesperson on the Las Vegas stage was the company's CDO, Linda Jojo. AWS will bring machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT), analytics, databases, computing, storage, and security capabilities to the airline.

In addition, Meta will use the AWS infrastructure and services to complement its existing on-premises infrastructure, and together they will optimize the performance of PyTorch to create, train and implement artificial intelligence models at scale.
