Enabling secure, fast transactions with real-time information in the financial services sector thanks to high-speed, custom purging and cache invalidation rules.
Varnish Software solutions for financial services
Financial services is a sector in which time means money, and every millisecond counts. Delivering up-to-date, real-time information is one of the biggest challenges, especially when many different systems and data centers are involved. Web caching is an important key in delivering speed, but without fine-grained caching and purging controls to ensure that information is fresh, speed is meaningless. Users are accessing financial information through websites and apps, and financial institutions are working to keep up with the demand for website architecture that will deliver fast, fresh content to multiple users at once.
The need to execute a minimum of thousands of cache purges per second to maintain critical business integrity and regulatory compliance is the kind of challenge financial services companies face. The need to supply data consistently and in real-time across multiple servers and locations weaves a web of issues that need coordination. This kind of coordination is possible.
You exist in an economy in which customers will have the ability to share their transactional data with third parties via an open standard API. This will lead to the development of more apps, giving consumers more options and value. These developments will accelerate technical change in the financial sector and make managing APIs and their performance increasingly important and their potential for activating new business opportunities further reaching.
