How to provide customers with continuous availability

Financial Services require two or more active data centers to provide their customers with continuous availability along with quick response times.

This provides a complete, local High Availability and a remote Disaster Recovery solution for more than 350 million financial transactions each month.


The two services, payment gateway and decryption-as-a-service, are identical deployments: production, certification, and staging (UAT).

More specifically:

  • Two collocated data centers
  • Active/active replication between each cluster in each data center
  • Full failover within the cluster and between clusters
  • Handle approx. 350M records each month
