Microsoft and Temenos Group AG, global provider of banking software, announced the successful completion of a high-performance benchmark that measured the high-end scalability of TEMENOS T24 (T24) on SQL Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter. "The testing environment, created to reflect real-world retail banking activity volumes, was made up of 25 million accounts and 15 million customers across 2,000 branches. At peak performance the system processed more than 3,400 transactions per second in online testing and averaged over 5,200 interest accrual and capitalisations per second during close of business processing. The testing demonstrated near linear scalability (95%) in building up toward final the hardware configuration," informs Microsoft.
The performance figures shown here together with massive scalability of SQL Server 2008 R2 make the combination of T24 and Microsoft technologies an increasingly compelling proposition for even the largest banks across globe.
