Bank Saint Petersburg says ‘No’ to downtime

bank saint petersburgBank Saint Petersburg has continued to enhance the technological infrastructure of its processing centre. In partnership with Compass Plus, Bank Saint Petersburg has performed a series of technological improvements to minimize the scheduled downtime of software upgrades to its processing centre. By implementing ‘nonstop upgrade’ technology, a combination of the clustering capabilities of TranzWare and using data replication from Oracle, it has enabled the bank to modify the database structure of the processing centre in real-time and reduce the downtime of its processing facility to just a few minutes.

“As a result of our work together, more than two million of our cardholders did not notice the upgrade of the processing system, which took less than three minutes. We consider the service continuity associated with the processing centre’s availability as an important competitive advantage. By implementing ’nonstop upgrade’ technology we are setting ourselves apart from banks that have to warn their customers in advance about the temporary unavailability of services due to the scheduled upgrades,” said Pavel Filimonenok, Deputy Chairman of the Board at Bank Saint Petersburg.
