GoldenGate Software, Inc., a leader in data synchronization, and its partner ACI Worldwide, a business unit of Transaction System Architects (Nasdaq: TSAI) and a leading international provider of enterprise payment solutions, today announced that ACI will sell, distribute and support GoldenGate's flagship product with ACI's BASE24-es open systems software.
Customers will use GoldenGate software in conjunction with BASE24-es for disaster recovery, allowing them to instantly fail over to a replicated site that allows business operations to continue without interruption in the event of an outage or disaster. ACI will market the GoldenGate software as their contingency solution for BASE24-es.
BASE24-es leverages open systems environments together with a unique "enterprise services" architecture to provide a flexible payment solution to acquire, authenticate, route, switch, and authorize financial transactions across multiple channels. GoldenGate's flexibility, unparalleled speed, volume and support for diverse database and platform environments make it the perfect complement to BASE24-es. The combined solution is expected to be available in Q4 2004.
"We are delighted to be able to provide our new BASE24-es customers with the GoldenGate solution," said Mark Vipond, president, ACI Worldwide. "Our sister company Insession Technologies has enjoyed working with GoldenGate for many years, and we are looking forward to a successful partnership as well. GoldenGate understands the banking and retail industries, and we are confident in their ability to meet our customers' needs now and into the future."
"ACI's new BASE24-es has already generated momentum, and we are looking forward to helping their new customers leverage GoldenGate for their disaster recovery needs," commented Rick Ainsworth, vice president, international and business development at GoldenGate. "Our solution is optimized for each target environment, ensuring that customers receive the same high level of functionality and performance they expect from their BASE24-es application, regardless of their platform choice."
News of the alliance agreement comes at the same time GoldenGate announced the extension of its channel partnership with Insession Technologies and a new solution, D24, that supports ACI's BASE24 Release 6.0 on the HP NonStop platform. The solution was jointly developed by GoldenGate, ACI and Insession Technologies. D24 offers dual site synchronization for high availability and load balancing on the HP NonStop platform. D24 will be demonstrated during the EMEA BASE24 User Group Conference, May 18-21 in Barcelona, Spain.
