Compass Plus electronic payment solutions and retail banking systems has completed scalability and performance tests on HP servers for their “TranzAxis” Open Development Banking Platform. A specialist, integrated platform created for the development and support of cards and payments, transaction switching, retail banking and other systems and applications in the domain linked to the automation of retail banking activities, “TranzAxis” was tested through a simulated issuing and acquiring setup that required it to drive 20,000 terminals (10,000 ATMs and 10,000 POS devices). TranzAxis also acted as an issuing system that included 10 million accounts with overdrafts and 10 million cards linked to them. The platform reached a sustained peak of 1066 transactions per second (TPS) during testing and remained stable at that high capacity.
