Re-architecting a Payments Platform to Extend Market Reach
A global Internet payment company that enables more than 160 million consumers in 203 countries to safely send and receive funds needed to upgrade its payment architecture so that it could successfully execute more than 1 billion read operations per day. Within the company’s vast network of online auction and ecommerce retailers, both buyers and sellers demand system reliability and immediate, accurate accounting of each and every financial transaction. The company’s technology architecture needed to maintain uptime and throughput speeds during peak transaction processing periods. It also needed to establish a cost-effective and scalable platform on which follow-on product releases could be distributed simultaneously on a worldwide basis.
