Customer Requirements

Due to the constantly expanding user and point of sale databases and legal regulatory requirements, Boost needed to secure their customer data at local data centre and and integrate with front-end application installed in AWS cloud. After a thorough comparison of offers Boost chose Comarch Data Centre services for their expertise in data centre operations around the world and competitive pricing
that signifi cantly reduced the costs and fl exibility to scale.

Apart from the high security requirements, which are regularly audited by Malaysian fi nancial authorities, Boost had to implement the solution quickly to ensure the market share of the dynamically growing e-wallet competition and adopting of existing infrastructure with required architecture. With a very tight deadline project implementation was challenging and required synchronization of tasks, migration processes, VPN network confi guration and adaptation of existing infrastructure to required architecture.

Good cooperation between Boost and Comarch has led to a successful project implementation within the set schedule and budget.

Customer Requirements

Comarch Data Center Services Deliver Reliability

Boost has two separate facilities: the main production environment in Kuala Lumpur and the disaster recovery centre located within a certain distance (outside Kuala Lumpur). The deployment was conducted in two phases.

Phase one required synchronization and migration of customer data. In order to do this, Comarch Data Centre specialists created a temporary production environment, while the fi nal hardware platform was pending prior to implementation.

The second and fi nal phase involved hardware installation, operating system, network and database configuration, monitoring, and backups. The migration of the production environment was completed successfully on time without any service disruptions.
