PT Financial Services Sharing (DanaRupiah) is an online lending company. The company’s consumer financing services include cash loans and productive loans for the agriculture and education sectors. Rupiah cash loans offer low interest, and with the service being completely online, obtaining a cash loan with DanaRupiah is fast and easy and can be done completely on a smart phone. Since the company was first established, Rupiah has already supported more than 4 million transactions in the form of new loans and recurring loans.02
With DanaRupiah being an online lending company registered with the Financial Services Authority (OJK), DanaRupiah must have full compliance with all related regulations, including those related to data security, data residency, and disaster recovery, as well as requirements related to cross-region network stability. To be able to meet all of these compliance and data location regulation, DanaRupiah requires a comprehensive cloud infrastructure solution, specifically one that can ensure network stability and the overall availability of DanaRupiah’s online services.03
Why Alibaba Cloud?
Alibaba Cloud was a clear choice for DanaRupiah as it has local service coverage in Indonesia and local data centers situated close to DanaRupiah’s customers. Moreover, with an extensive suite of networking, storage, and computing products, Alibaba Cloud’s cloud services can easily meet all of DanaRupiah’s requirements for achieving and maintaining compliance with all the related regulations, including ensuring better network quality and stability.04
Alibaba Cloud implemented a comprehensive Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) architecture that involves several computing, storage, database and networking services. The proposed architecture uses Alibaba Cloud Elastic Compute Service (ECS) and ApsaraDB for Redis to provide the necessary scalability and performance to power the applications behind DanaRupiah’s online financial services, and the proposed architecture also involves several of Alibaba Cloud’s networking products including Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN), VPN Gateway, Server Load Balancer (SLB), and Elastic IP. Together, these products help DanaRupiah to maintain better network quality by facilitating secure and low latency connections while also providing DanaRupiah with greater flexibility in managing the related networking resources. Last, for a cost-effective storage solution, Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service (OSS) was implemented. The proposed architecture has also provided DanaRupiah with a comprehensive disaster recovery solution, which has helped the company achieve full compliance with data location regulation.05
Alibaba Cloud’s services and solutions not only helped DanaRupiah to meet all compliance requirements, but have also helped to provide the scalability, networking capabilities, and necessary performance to ensure superior network quality and support for the systems behind DanaRupiah’s online financial services. With this comprehensive architecture implemented, DanaRupiah look forward to continue to work with Alibaba Cloud more in the future as the company continues to work hard to provide the convenient and easy financial services that its customers have come to expect.
