As an HFT, relying on the smallest margins of time, even a tiny increase in speed can be worth big money. If you work in HFT, you’re always looking for an advantage; an improved algorithm, a better distributed storage method, better network hardware, or a faster CPU with more cache. The technology changes all the time and you need to stay out front. But you already know that!
Staying ahead means you need to upgrade as often as possible. But upgrading is also expensive. Even though it might be “worth” it based on the marginal speed increase, it still requires a lot of money and logistical coordination to upgrade regularly.
What if you could recapture more value from your “old” equipment? This equipment is likely only one generation old, and it has plenty of life left. This is where an ITAD company like GEODIS with a proven value recovery practice and a good network can help. Many companies and industries don’t require the bleeding edge speed that HFT demands – some would rather save the money. In fact, this desire drives a secondary market for equipment, and ITAD companies with a value recovery practice create liquidity by acting as market-makers on a variety of technology. This positioning enables GEODIS to know the market well and position this valuable equipment to gain as much value as possible.
The increased value that a well-verse company, like GEODIS can help you gain in the secondary market may enable you to upgrade earlier in the release cycle. What could you do with a couple months head start? And, once you setup an ITAD process with GEODIS, you can change out hardware continuously – upgrading at the speed of your business.
Also, by performing data sanitization on all your storage devices, GEODIS will help you protect your proprietary algorithms and sensitive customer data.
Here is a quick overview on data wiping:
- Multi-pass overwriting -- conforms to Data Wiping Standards: DOD 5220.22-M and NIST SP 800-88
- Complete data wiping across all equipment types, including mobile devices and Solid State Drives (SSD).
