By Edil Corneille
Today, Tencent Cloud announced that the Tencent Distributed Database (TDSQL), its financial-certificated infrastructure, is now fully operational in the new core system of Indonesia’s Bank Neo Commerce (BNC).
The development marks the first time for Tencent Cloud to bring TDSQL overseas and demonstrates the further move away from traditional database architectures in exchange for scalable and distributed ones, which are now said to be playing an important role in ensuring security risks and sustaining business development as global financial businesses evolve.
Further boosting BNC’s services, the upgraded database constructed by Tencent Cloud through TDSQL could help address the challenges of digital transformation in the financial services industry, including insufficient data architecture, high-frequency transactions and data security, etc.
TDSQL supports comprehensive features of data backup, disaster recovery and quick upgrade features. Currently offering database services in both public and private clouds to over 600 governmental and organisational customers in China across various fields, it has Chinese and international certifications for Tencent Cloud database, including but not limited to ISO22301, ISO27001, ISO20000, ISO9001, Trusted Cloud, Information Security Protection Level (Level 3 or above), and CSA STAR.
Poshu Yeung, Vice President of Tencent International Business Group said, “…We look forward to helping BNC open up more avenues to serving Indonesia even better through the cutting-edge technology provided by TDSQL. This initiative marks TDSQL’s first overseas deployment, and by leveraging the robust support provided by TDSQL, we believe that many more internet-based financial businesses in the country would be able to sustain their development and capture new opportunities without hindrance in technology.”
Tjandra Gunawan, President Director of BNC said, “BNC is always striving to attain excellence in product strength, technological advancement and experience in implementation, leading us to choose only the best in building a best-in-class distributed system architecture. We are delighted to welcome Tencent Cloud in bringing TDSQL into BNC’s new core system, which is in time with our move to boost our business through financial technology. We look forward to using an upgraded database architecture to serve our customers’ various and wide-ranging business needs and demands.”
Supported by TDSQL, a comprehensive distributed database solution presented by Tencent along with digital banking products from Sunline, Tencent Cloud has addressed challenges of digital transformation in financial services industry regarding business upgrades, slow system response and lack of internet operational tools, among others.
