Lusis Payments' TANGO Achieves 2,500 Transactions Per Second

Lusis Payments, a Global payments software and services provider, is proud to announce the results of a recent proof of concept that demonstrated that its TANGO platform is capable of processing 2,500 transactions per second for 48 hours straight hours without failure.

“This is a major win for TANGO,” said Phillipe Preval, CEO of Lusis Payments. “The client was looking for a next-generation payment transaction processing solution that could serve as a switch to provide services to existing solutions, thus reducing costs by harmonizing development and operations activities, reducing time-to-market and increasing overall quality to the end customer.”

The client currently operates more than 20 million terminals, deployed in over 125 countries, which include some of the world’s largest financial institutions. For the proof of concept, Lusis Payments simulated the client’s system to test TANGO. HP ran the proof-of-concept tests at its Palo Alto, California, facilities on HP hardware and worked with the client to reproduce its environment for a true simulation. The hardware configuration used at the time of the benchmark consisted of the NBC54000 platform running 8 blades with Intel’s Itanium QuadCore processors. Each blade had 64 GB of RAM and disk CLIM with 50 mirrored SAS disks that were 300 GB each. In addition 4 Atalla HSM’s were connected for PAN encryption. As a Lusis Payments partner, HP was proud to demonstrate how well an elite product like TANGO can maximize the high performance of HP Nonstop servers. The project determined that TANGO is fault-tolerant and achieves outstanding volumes and throughput.

Preval said that the success of the project was due to cooperation by all parties involved. “TANGO outperformed the client's expectations and demonstrated low memory consumption,” he said. “The solution’s message-based design allows for high scalability and flexible modular composition of components controlled by configuration files instead of programmed code, which makes it fairly easy to tailor the platform and hardware to the client’s needs.”

TANGO provides an open SOA for acquiring, routing, switching, authenticating and authorizing transactions across multiple channels — including ATM, point of sale, Internet and mobile banking — in a multi-institution environment across different geographies.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
