The S1 Postilion Group, a leading provider of payments and transaction management solutions, and IBM today announced the general availability of Postilion software for IBM System p servers running DB2 9 data server.
Financial services providers using Postilion software can now rely on the strengths of IBM System p servers, the proven reliability and security of IBM's AIX UNIX operating system, and powerful and secure transaction processing and data management capabilities provided by IBM's DB2 9 data server.
"Banks are grappling with the task of renovating older payments systems in response to competitive, regulatory and cost pressures," said Mark Greene, vice president, IBM financial services. "The combination of Postilion payments software running on IBM hardware and software will help our clients better access and integrate payments data and process high-volume financial transactions with minimal operational risk."
"Our own recent scalability and reliability benchmarking of Postilion on IBM System p servers with DB2 9 data server confirms that they are perfect for deploying high-performance Postilion solutions," said Johann Dreyer, chief executive officer of S1 Corporation. "We are very excited to team with IBM and offer Postilion on this platform, in addition to our long-standing support for the Microsoft Windows Server operating system and SQL Server database."
