NTT DATA Deploys AMD EPYC Processors, Boosts Performance for its Financial Systems

AMD EPYCTM pro짯ces짯sors deli짯ver pri짯ce-per짯for짯mance advan짯ta짯ge and high core den짯si짯ty for NTT DATA cus짯to짯mers and finan짯cial services 

SANTA CLARA, Calif. March 26, 2019 AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) and NTT DATA, a reco짯gni짯zed lea짯der in glo짯bal tech짯no짯lo짯gy ser짯vices, today announ짯ced the deploy짯ment of AMD EPYCTM pro짯ces짯sors in NTT DATA셲 dat짯a짯cen짯ter. NTT DATA is boos짯ting its Cre짯dit and Finan짯cial Infor짯ma짯ti짯on Sys짯tem (CAFIS) sys짯tem, a com짯pre짯hen짯si짯ve cloud-based pay짯ment plat짯form, by intro짯du짯cing AMD EPYC processors.

By deploy짯ing the hig짯her core counts, I/O and memo짯ry band짯width of EPYC pro짯ces짯sors, NTT DATA has increased its over짯all ser짯ver per짯for짯mance across vir짯tu짯al envi짯ron짯ments and its CAFIS sys짯tem. AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors have also impac짯ted NTT DATA셲 inter짯nal stake짯hol짯ders through sup짯port of their vir짯tu짯al desk짯top infra짯struc짯tu짯re (VDI), hel짯ping deli짯ver remo짯te access to more than 200 deve짯lo짯pers and engineers.

Thanks to AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors, we are able to con짯nect more than 120 cre짯dit com짯pa짯nies and 1,600 ban짯king cen짯ters through our CAFIS sys짯tem with excel짯lent per짯for짯mance and relia짯bi짯li짯ty, said Mino짯ru Yoshi짯za짯wa, Sub Mana짯ger, NTT DATA Finan짯cial Core. 쏷he uni짯que sin짯gle-socket design offers distinct pri짯ce-per짯for짯mance advan짯ta짯ges for NTT DATA and our cus짯to짯mers. We look for짯ward to brin짯ging the짯se advan짯ta짯ges to other appli짯ca짯ti짯ons with addi짯tio짯nal deploy짯ments of AMD EPYC pro짯ces짯sors, Said Sato짯shi Hagi짯noya, Sub Mana짯ger of Cards & Pay짯ments Ser짯vices, NTT DATA.

The CAFIS brand covers a set of pay짯ment-rela짯ted ser짯vices that NTT DATA has been pro짯vi짯ding for over 30 years as one of the lar짯gest pay짯ment infra짯struc짯tures in Japan. CAFIS Arch is a cloud-based com짯pre짯hen짯si짯ve pay짯ment plat짯form which pro짯vi짯des pay짯ment func짯tions as well as inbound func짯tions and sup짯ple짯men짯ta짯ry func짯tions for various pay짯ment terminals.

We are thril짯led that NTT DATA is adding AMD EPYC sin짯gle-socket pro짯ces짯sors to sup짯port its finan짯cial cloud-based plat짯form ser짯vices to start. The EPYC pro짯ces짯sor pro짯vi짯des more cores and more memo짯ry band짯width than the com짯pe짯ti짯ti짯on, and out짯stan짯ding sta짯bi짯li짯ty a gre짯at fit for NTT DATA셲 vir짯tu짯al workloads and cloud appli짯ca짯ti짯ons, said Scott Aylor, cor짯po짯ra짯te vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, AMD dat짯a짯cen짯ter solutions.

NTT Data is lever짯aging the sin짯gle-socket per짯for짯mance of the AMD EPYC7551P and EPYC7351P pro짯ces짯sors on a Tyan ser짯ver plat짯form for their new systems.
