MobilePay Banks on Datastax for Mainframe Migration

Managing to become Denmark’s leading customer-to-customer and customer-to-business payments application in just six short years, MobilePay is now used by more than 82% of the country’s population. A rapidly increasing user base forced the MobilePay IT team to reconsider its database infrastructure and switch to one that could support a highly distributed, cloud-based computing environment.


"We wanted to implement a distributed database that would fit with our microservices-based application strategy and that would be able to handle the availability and scalability needs of the applications too. Cassandra matched this model perfectly, and the production support for DataStax Enterprise made a big difference. We considered other approaches based on SQL Server, but the distributed and always-on nature of DataStax Enterprise was a far better fit. The support from DataStax would also be essential as we moved into production—the company was the only option that would meet our needs around service-level commitments."
