No more ATM hardware upgrades with OS-Virtualization

February 19, 2019

In January 2020, support for Windows 7 will end and it must be replaced by Windows 10. This migration presents banks with a major problem: the expense and complexity of upgrading their ATM software and hardware. The shift from Windows XP to Windows 7 in 2014 cost the global industry billions of dollars because upgrading the ATM operating system also meant upgrading the hardware. Banks are about to encounter the very same issue again when they must upgrade to Windows 10. But there is an answer: OS-Virtualization. This uses a technology known as a hypervisor to separate the hardware motherboard from the operating system so that software drivers that are unsupported under Windows 10 can be supported by the hypervisor software instead.

whitePaper | December 22, 2021

Choosing the CPU for enterprise applications is not an easy task, whether you use a simple quick calculation to determine your needs or perform exhaustive capacity planning with analytical model simulations for workloads and their future growth. Often, lack of details (or inaccurate information) about the input data and the workload type leads to uncertain estimations about the rightsizing of the hardware (CPU type, core count and clock speed, memory capacity, etc.), leading to suboptimal resource utilization.
