EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Sadad is a Qatari payment gateway platform which provides highly secure cashless payments across multiple online and offline merchants through integrated and diversified financial services.

CUSTOMER CHALLENGE

As the application was going to be dealing with the financial details of its end users, it was important for the underlying infrastructure to be highly secure, performance efficient and fault-tolerant. Though the application itself was being built keeping various compliances and security measures in mind, it was important for the client to have the underlying infrastructure to also meet all the necessary security criteria.

The client was looking for a platform which could meet all the above requirements to ensure secure and error-free online transactions for his end users and to ensure data transfer between various components like the application, POS devices, end users and the bank is highly secure and contained.

PARTNER SOLUTION

Being an Amazon partner and having 15+ years background as managed service provider in the field of server management, we took our experience along with our AWS expertise to deliver the best.

Geeks Solutions has a track record of building Containerised Orchestration and Kubernetes-based deployments on everything from bare metal to virtualized private data-centers and the cloud.

Various AWS components were evaluated, its configurations, and internal components required were discussed along the way to the deployment.

We decided to go with AWS Cloud because it not only meets all the requirements put forth by the client but also has a highly secure and stable underlying infrastructure which is extremely crucial given the nature of the business.

By incorporating the agile tactic, our AWS CSAA’s and 24×7 SA team safeguarded the applications availability in in a timely manner. Round-the-clock support was provided for the application and infrastructure.
