The Pensions First cloud is a Microsoft-based open and flexible platform that enables Pensions First and its customers to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across data centers. The Pensions First cloud hosts blue-chip customers on its PFaroe web-based platform. PFaroe provides granular and accurate analysis of defined benefit pensions risk for non-actuarial pension managers, CFOs, treasurers and trustees.
Pensions First's private cloud architecture is based on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 and uses Mellanox RDMA-enabled InfiniBand and Ethernet interconnects to provide a high-performance and cost effective solution that scales easily. The platform supports both SQL Server 2012 and Hyper-V Server 2012 and utilizes RDMA offloading, using both SMB Direct and Live Migration over RDMA, which greatly accelerates data analysis.
