Container Love in Times of Regulation: Higher stability, security and scalability through microservice architecture
In the first half of 2019, figo will restructure its technical operation environment. In addition to a further data centre – from currently two to three German data centres in the future, operated by the known subcontractors of iNNOVO Cloud – the infrastructure will be converted to a container-based environment. Accordingly, the figo Banking as a Service API will be evolved into a microservice architecture. To orchestrate the overall solution, Kubernetes will be used.
These measures ensure figo API’s future-readiness with regard to requirements for stability, security, scalability and performance, while at the same time, enabling greater flexibility with increasing use of the service. The conversion has no effect on the continued reliable guarantee, that figo can meet BaFin’s Minimum Requirements for Risk Management (MaRisk) for hosted SaaS setups both as a service provider and as a payment institution.
