The Temenos T24 core banking application is a critical application for the banks that use it and has a primary focus on providing an appropriate level of high availability and disaster recovery. The level of availability is determined largely by the configuration of the infrastructure that supports T24. This infrastructure is built on hardware, middleware, and networking, in addition to the operational procedures and practices that are used to operate T24.
Many options are available for meeting a client's high availability and disaster recovery requirements. The solution chosen by a Temenos T24 user depends on many factors. These factors include a user's detailed availability and recovery requirements; their existing datacenter standards, practices, and processes; and the available network infrastructure. Therefore, the optimum solution must be determined on a case-by-case basis for each deployment.
This IBM® Redpaper™ publication serves as a guide to help IT architects and other technical staff who are designing, configuring, and building the infrastructure to support Temenos T24. It shows how IBM software can deliver high availability and disaster recovery for Temenos T24 to meet a client's requirements. This software might run on IBM AIX®, IBM WebSphere® Application Server, WebSphere MQ Server, and IBM DB2®. These IBM software components are typically used for a Temenos T24 deployment on an IBM middleware stack to ensure a highly available infrastructure for T24.
