Postilion, a leader in software solutions for self-service banking and payments and a division of S1 Corporation (Nasdaq: SONE), and Threshold Financial Technologies jointly announced today that Threshold will deploy Postilion Payment Switching and ATM Driving on the AIX 5L operating system, using Postilion's active/active solution architecture to ensure 100% system availability.
A Postilion customer for more than seven years, Threshold is a highly customer centric, solutions oriented, and innovative service provider, fuelled by a passion for excellence. The company has been providing fully managed ATM and transaction processing solutions to Canadian retailers and financial institutions for almost a decade.
"We have a well established presence in the Canadian payments industry and have been pleased with the high-performance service offerings that Postilion solutions have enabled us to deploy to date," said Matthew McIver, President of Threshold. "With the active/active feature of Postilion solutions running on the IBM System p platform, we are confident that this will place Threshold at the forefront of the industry for delivering world-class, fault-tolerant, and leading-edge ATM and switching solutions to Canada's financial services market."
"The scalability and reliability of Postilion, recently benchmarked with 1,000 transactions per second on IBM System p servers and the DB2 data server, positions processors like Threshold to attract business from larger financial services organizations," said Pierre Naude, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Postilion Americas. "We are very excited to deliver Postilion solutions to Threshold that offer the strength of our active/active software availability configuration, together with IBM hardware and the proven reliability of a UNIX operating system."
