Platform 1 is an industrial platform capable to operate with high transaction load, thousands of users, and millions of documents and accounts.
Platform 1 combines all Applications, Application Objects and other Bank information resources in a whole. It gives the opportunity of quick development and a breakthrough due to selection from over 1 200 fully ready functional Applications (options) and their inclusion in the current Bank infrastructure by integrating them with modules of third party vendors.
Platform 1 allows the Bank to accelerate the launch of new Products manifold due to the use of a unique CFT Bank Product Catalog.
Platform 1 is a technological platform for information systems CFT-Bank, CFT-Retail Bank, CFT-Management Accounting, CFT-Front Office, CFT-Budget Performance Monitoring Service for Bank Corporate Customers, CFT-Data Warehouse, and other systems developed on the basis of this platform.
Platform 1 is divided into the following logical levels:
Platform 1 provides for the bank:
Platform 2 МСА (Mission Critical Application) is the latest development of CFT. New generation technological platform for development and use of CRITICAL banking applications.
With all the functionality of Platform 1, Platform 2MCA (due to its 3-level architecture) provides to the bank remarkable productivity, unlimited scalability and the market's best value for money.
ARCHITECTURAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL BENEFITS
Benefits of banking systems implemented on the basis of Platform 2МСА:
The three-level architecture of Platform 2МСА provides unlimited opportunities for scalability and centralizing. Scalability is possible both on the level of application servers and DB servers.
Division of the application logic and database has allowed scaling the system not by high-end servers but by middle-range or even lower level servers. A middle-range server is used as the database server, and the system is scaled by application servers whose total processing capacity will cost much less for the bank that a high-end server of the same capacity.
BASIC STRUCTURAL PRINCIPLES
Independence from operating systems, potential independence from DBMS.
Succession of CFT Platforms
For banks with installed CFT banking systems based on Platform 1, transfer to Platform 2MCA is just transmission of the application part of the systems to a new technological core.
Thus the bank will have no need for retraining of the system business users as the interface and the functionality of the systems are identical. And bank IT specialists will not have to learn new programming languages, for these purposes CFT specialists have created a PL/plus to Java compiler.
Testing of CFT-Platform 2MCA on Oracle Exadata
Testing date: first quarter of 2011
Purpose: Estimation of the productivity of CFT-Bank (Platform 2MCA) on Oracle Exadata Database Machine
Load: 30,000 simultaneously working users
Result: all tests showed successful results with a reserve of computational capacities
Configuration of the used Oracle Exadata software and hardware system:
Based on the testing results CFT recommends using Oracle Exadata Database Machine software and hardware system as the platform for the use of software products on the basis of Platform 1 and Platform 2MCA.
Successful tests of Platform 2 МСА on Oracle Exadata software and hardware system are the starting point for further development of the Platform using Oracle technologies. CFT carries out regular adapting and testing of its software at Oracle Solution Center. Among the latest CFT offers is support of Oracle WebLogic Server 11g R1 application server.
CFT-Platform 2MCA provides:
2. Oracle Exalogic X2-2 Full Rack application server
Based on the testing results CFT recommends using Oracle SPARC SuperCluster software and hardware system as the platform for the use of software products on the basis of Platform 1 and Platform 2MCA.
