We are probably the world’s first card payment service to develop and deploy a cloud computing architecture as defined by industry experts such as Sun Microsystems.
London, UK (PRWeb UK) April 5, 2010
Cloud computing refers to accessing dynamically scalable and often virtualized IT resources as a service over the Internet. YESpay has successfully managed to replicate the cloud computing architecture for its four new global card payments transaction processing data centers located in London (UK), Heathrow (UK), Toronto (Canada) and San Francisco (USA).
“We are probably the world’s first card payment service to develop and deploy a cloud computing architecture as defined by industry experts such as Sun Microsystems,” said Dr. Chandra Patni, CEO and CTO of YESpay group of companies.
YESpay provides its integrated card transaction processing service to merchants throughout Europe and North America (ISA and Canada). YESpay’s current 4 data centers, branded as EMBOSS, work on the cloud computing architecture and deliver a resilient payment service to its customers through a “Software as a Service model” (SaaS) model. In a SaaS model, a single application is accessed by thousands of customers through the Internet. The main application is hosted centrally in multiple EMBOSS data centers and a basic software (EasyV Terminal) is installed at the customers end to facilitate communication with the host. In this type of multitenant architecture, customers are just thin clients with no requirements for servers or software licenses. The customers of such a service model are generally billed on a utility (pay as you use) or subscription basis.
The benefits deriving from YESpay’s SaaS model range from infinite scalability to reduced infrastructure investment and no software licensing charges. The main benefits of replicating cloud computing architecture for YESpay’s customers are categorized below:
Since YESpay is responsible for storing the cardholder data on behalf of its clients, it ensures high levels of security, certified to PCI DSS level 1 at all its data centers throughout Europe and North America.
With YESpay’s SaaS model, there is no capital investment required for the merchant, just operational monthly service costs. Customers don’t need their own operational staff and physical equipment (such as servers, storage, networks, and virtualization technologies) and can access YESpay’s payment solution over the internet.
Cloud computing load sharing gives:
- 99.99% availability (practically 100%) even during maintenance, upgrades, etc
- Multiple load sharing data centers provide auto Disaster Recovery (DR) capability
Hence, YESpay is utilizing the cloud computing revolution to impart a fully resilient and “ready for future” payment services to its customers helping them adapt and excel in the ever changing card payment market scenario.
