Leverate invests more than half-million USD in its private Data Center

With the cutting-edge Hyper-Converge method, things are completely different: we no longer need external storage! Instead, the servers will be equipped with high-performance SSD-based local drives, and all servers will be connected in a cluster to a 40Gbps switch, with all the inputs on the switch being 40Gbps.

Leverate has grown significantly in the past year, and to accommodate this growth we have expanded our resources to suit the increasing number of customers and their trading volume by deploying new technology. With our new private servers within the Equinix Data Center located in London, we provide our customers with nearly zero downtime, reduced latency, increased execution speed, and extremely fast, constantly available feed. Leverate is constantly working to improve its customer service, and the new technology is another step we have taken to guarantee professionalism and service to our customers.

Several companies are located in close proximity to this data center, and this gives us a significant advantage.

Dell EMC & VSAN Hyper Converge

Leverate’s senior management explained “With the cutting-edge Hyper-Converge method, things are completely different: we no longer need external storage! Instead, the servers will be equipped with high-performance SSD-based local drives, and all servers will be connected in a cluster to a 40Gbps switch, with all the inputs on the switch being 40Gbps.”

“VMware’s vSphere virtualization system is installed on the servers, and VSAN licenses were purchased for the vSphere system to manage the drives as software-defined storage, which is an integral part of the vSphere embedded within the Kernel. Therefore, the Hypervisor system and the storage are in fact one entity in a single system that is familiar with the working environment firsthand, unlike the traditional storage system we know today.”

“Project design was done with full consideration of the trading world, in cooperation with DELL consultants and designers, and with comprehensive testing by VMware Israel specialists and TEAM integrators, to ensure survivability, availability and high performance.”

This new technology will bring Leverate to the forefront of current infrastructure technology, with clear advantages –

High Availability

Leverate can tolerate a scenario of 3 physical servers with local failed drives with no server or virtual system shutdown.

High performance & Best practice for trading

Since the trading systems cannot tolerate latency, both at the CPU level and at the ‘networking and write/read on disk’ level, Leverate brings powerful performance to the world of Forex trading: powerful DELL FX Series servers with 40 Gbps network cards, a large number of processors and a great amount of RAM, and different SSD drives for capacity and for cache located on the servers themselves, with high survivability and very high performance, 10 times higher than current capabilities.

Backup & Restore

Leverate is offering a highly powerful and easy-to-use Backup & Restore solution. It provides fast, flexible and reliable recovery of applications and virtual data, bringing VM Backup & Replication together into one software solution.

Leverate’s Backup & Replication provides award-winning support for VMware vSphere and Hyper-V virtual environments.

Microsoft Gold Partner

Leverate has been a Gold Partner in the Microsoft development world for seven years. Our close cooperation with Microsoft brings us to a very high level of development in the dot.net world, with a strong support of Microsoft consultants, designers and technicians.

In compliance with regulative needs, in the last 5 years Leverate has been holding an ISAE 3402 international compliance certification that guarantees all the advantages and features our customers need.

Shlomi Azoulay, CISO & IT Manager at Leverate: “We at Leverate always aim to be at the forefront in terms of performance, stability and security, and we are positive that this new technology will provide our clients with the best environment possible.”
