A 10x Increase in Scalability with Docker Enterprise

Visa is one of the world’s largest retail electronic payments networks and best-known brands. Visa has an ongoing initiative to speed deployment of new IT services while maintaining the company’s robust availability and security capabilities.

Challenge


Despite big investments in virtualization, Visa’s private cloud infrastructure utilization was still below 15 percent, and patching, maintenance, and system refresh cycles created unacceptable downtime.

Solutions


With Docker Enterprise, Visa has refactored two critical payment processing applications and now runs them on Docker’s enterprise container platform, supporting millions of transactions per day.

Results


After just six months in production, Visa achieved a 10x increase in scalability for two customer-facing payment processing applications. Visa processes $5.8 trillion in transactions, while maintaining the company’s robust availability and security capabilities.
