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.
