LiquidityBook, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based provider of buy- and sell-side trading solutions, announced the completion of its migration to Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centers globally. As a result, LiquidityBook now maintains a Point of Presence (POP) in AWS regions in the US and Europe, with the ability to quickly scale up globally across Europe, the US, Asia-Pacific and LatAm as client need arises.

LiquidityBook offers a full suite of buy- and sell-side solutions supporting the full trade lifecycle, including order management, portfolio management, execution management, FIX network connectivity, compliance and pre- and post-trade processing. It has employed a fully SaaS-based model for its platform since 2013 when it launched its next generation LBX suite, leveraging AWS for certain infrastructure components. Earlier this year LiquidityBook began a project to move to a full Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) model, migrating its entire infrastructure to the cloud provider.

“We were an early adopter of the web for both the front- and back-end of our platform for multiple reasons – simplicity, extensibility, flexibility and scalability to name a few,” explained Chief Architect Andy Carroll, who was brought on earlier this year to lead the AWS migration effort. “Amazon has been a fantastic partner for us since we developed our next-gen platform, and we’re very happy to have moved our full infrastructure to it to create a fully-resilient data center mesh globally.”
