The future of institutional trading - slower trading through cloud based services?

"A venue that questions the need for speed is a new ATV called PDQ run by ex GETCO CEO Keith Ross. PDQ say they have developed new ways to allow the less fleet-footed to compete on a level playing field. They are aiming to persuade traders and institutions that their new trading systems offers a leg up by actually decelerating the execution of trades."

Cloud for Algo Trading?

It is kind of interesting topic for brainstorming. We are aiming to achieve faster speed with hardware acceleration. however some are already thinking to achieve better performance by slowing down the executions. However will it really make sense? Both strategies have same logic, a slower one can get better executions?
