Ensure always-on availability of applications across retail banking, corporate banking and capital markets
Downtime prevention, minimal processing latency, and unmatched performance is why financial services companies around the world rely on Stratus.
Stratus Continuous Availability for financial services enable you to:
- Protect processing, transactional and administrative applications with always-on availability that works with standard operating systems
- Prevent downtime, instead of recovering for it, by detecting potential problems and proactively taking action before downtime becomes an issue
- Accelerate processing speed by improving network I/O latency, bandwidth and message rates
All while reducing CPU utilization, without modifications to applications or the network.
Edge Computing in Financial Services
Edge computing enables financial services companies to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction by reducing latency, increasing security, and improving the use of Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud and other technologies. With edge computing, financial services companies can now realize these benefits while lowering costs. According to Accenture, “edge computing is one of the most promising tech innovations in banking today and is rapidly becoming a mission-critical infrastructure.”
Edge computing speeds up processing times by removing the latency and bandwidth constraints when sending data between the edge, data center and/or the cloud. This increased speed improves customer response times and enables near-real time decision making for the business.
Edge computing allows sensitive data to be secured locally, eliminating the need to transfer data which opens the door to cyberattacks and data breaches. Edge computing platforms with out-of-the-box IT approved security protocols provide a layer of protection while edge-based analytics can identify and flag suspicious activity.
Hardened, purpose-built platforms
Edge computing platforms are purpose-built and tough enough to operate in austere remote environments, including high and low temperature extremes, next to vibrating equipment, and those subject to continuous shock. It is now possible to distribute computing power to ATMs, the stock exchange floor, or places that were previously unsuitable for computing hardware.
Improved use of technology
Edge computing allows for focused and productive use of IoT and Cloud-enabled capabilities, creating opportunity for greater innovation. This includes the potential use of blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), and near field communications (NFC) that lead to more personalized, valued customer experiences.
From trading applications that require processing in nanoseconds to credit and debit card authorizations that require transaction processing in real time, any interruption in service could be the difference between you, your competition, and your bottom line.
