Powered by fast-growing digital services, online payments have rapidly grown in popularity in recent years on a global scale, across various devices. However, particularly in Southeast Asia, these services have become a lucrative target to cybercriminal activity, which is having a negative impact on business performance and reputation amongst their clients.
Therefore, consumer data protection and security at transactional layer are now a "must-have" capability for both incumbent and emerging pure-play payment service providers, which drives the high demand of fraud detection and protection services. As businesses look to expand quickly, companies are now looking for a cloud provider that can meet the following requirements:
The solution? The Alibaba IaaS and PaaS portfolio, which encompasses a range of Elastic Compute Services (ECS), Database, Network, and Storage solutions. All of these products are deployed in a high availability mode across two different time zones in Indonesia, a country which has become a prime target of cyber criminals.
One of our Fintech/Finance clients based in Indonesia leveraged several Alibaba Cloud services in the production environment. Founded in 2008, the customer is headquartered in Singapore with global operations in the US, Europe, China and Southeast Asia, and was looking for a provider to help facilitate their operations.
The company provides a scalable and automated fraud management solution that helps companies manage their payment fraud risks and prevent hostile account takeovers. They have screened transactions in over 190 countries, securing billions in gross merchandise value across various verticals including e-commerce, airlines, telecommunications, e-wallets and government sectors. However, they were lacking the correct software to accommodate all of these operational touchpoints.
They've been using RDS for MySQL service with HA capability and read/write split feature for a few years. Driven by rapid business growth, the database storage reached 2-3TB, which hits the storage capacity of the particular MySQL cluster.
Thus, it triggers database expansion. Due to the functional limitations of MySQL's architecture, it does not support online storage expansion. The traditional approach is to expand the storage through the manually online mechanism, which requires hours for movement of terabytes of data with a high risk of business disruption.
In the long term, our client acknowledged that they may need to repeat the same tedious process when storage out of capacity occurs in the future. So they turned to an Alibaba Cloud proprietary database service – POLARDB, a high-end cloud-based database product – to address the above-listed challenges with its key features below.
Following a close collaboration with the customer's IT team, our client successfully migrated RDS instances to POLARDB. They've since acknowledged that Alibaba Cloud's products were key to supporting their ever-growing business – improving service reliability, availability and performance as a result.
