Continuous Application Availability for Merchant Services

Situation

A major bank provides credit and debit card processing for its merchant customers.

Problem

The bank needed to ensure its merchant services were highly reliable, continuously available, and able to survive any system or data center failure with rapid failover for the affected users. Hurricane activity periodically threatens one of the bank’s datacenters.


Solution

Diagram of merchant customers connected to a NonStop server residing in Florida, and other merchant customers connected to a NonStop server residing in Michigan. Both application/server pair sends partitioned application updates back and forth to avoid data collisions, with Shadowbase bi-directional replication keeping the two databases synchronized.
