Cartu Bank understands the need for continuous availability with more than 60% of all e-commerce transactions in the Eastern European country of Georgia running through its payment switch. HPE NonStop Servers with HPE Shadowbase software run mission-critical BASE24™ payment engines to keep the Georgian economy running 24×7.
Giorgi Ioramashvili, head of Cartu Bank’s IT department, remarks, “It was important to our solution to have replication software like Shadowbase integrated with the NonStop servers. We looked at Oracle GoldenGate, which also could replicate BASE24, but because Shadowbase operates natively within the NonStop operating environment, it was more stable and easier to work with. Plus, Shadowbase was 40% to 50% less expensive than Oracle GoldenGate.”
