Based in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, Boost ‘e-wallet’ is one of the leading wallet services in the country. As a lifestyle service, it aims to revolutionize the way consumers transact on a daily basis. Combining lifestyle needs and cutting edge digital technology, Boost strives to make transactions easier, faster, more secure & overall a more rewarding experience for consumers.
Boost allows users to pay via their mobile phone at participating locations without the hassle of using physical cash or cards. You can pay with Boost at more than 10,000 merchants nationwide in night market, food courts, food trucks, online shopping and branded retailers. In addition, Boost users can send money to one another without paying for interbank charges and this is regardless of their mobile networks.
Due to the constantly expanding user and merchant base from e-wallet application as well as regulatory requirement, Boost decided to secure with a local data center infrastructure. After a thorough comparison of offers, Boost decided to cooperate with Comarch Data Center Services for its differentiated approach to enterprise licensing and competitive proposal that significantly reduced the costs and flexibility to scale.
Apart from the high-security requirements, Boost had to implement the solution quickly to gain the market share. Project implementation was challenging when both parties have to cooperate in different time zones, synchronization of task execution, challenging migration process and VPN network configuration.
A good cooperation between both sides finally yield a successful project implementation in short time frame
before gone live!
BOOST has two separate facilities : A disaster center was chosen within certain distances from main production environment in city Centre. The deployment was conducted in two phases. Phase One required synchronization and migration of customer’s data. In order to do this, Comarch DC specialists created a temporary production environment while pending for final hardware platform to be ready for deployment. Final Second Phase was deployed with the installation of hardware equipment, configuration of the operating system, databases, monitoring & network configuration and creation of backups. The migration of the production environment was completed successfully on time without any service degradation.
Modern data processing and storage facilities used as an alternative for companies to expanding their IT infrastructure resources.
“Working with Comarch was a pleasure. We knew the project requirements were very demanding, but Comarch engineers were up for the task. Not only did they meet all the requirements and deadline, but provided our team with necessary know-how about the implementation during the deployment. We look forward for future collaborations with Comarch.“
