RISC to x86 Migration

The Financial Services Industry (FSI) exceeds all other industries in the scale of host application implementation. Industry players are migrating services from mainframes and UNIX servers to cloud platforms to cut down their IT costs.

To better address the challenges brought by Internet finance, banks are building open platforms to support more types of services, and accelerate new service development and roll-out. High-concurrency service access calls for more-cost-effective infrastructures, and more-reliable service platforms and single-server systems.

Core banking systems used to run on closed architectures, bringing various challenges:

  • Challenge 1: UNIX servers have high deployment and maintenance costs, but low ROI
  • Challenge 2: Average x86 servers lack the reliability needed to run core banking services. Banks have no choice but to leave these services running on Unix servers
  • Challenge 3:Unix servers have long service deployment duration due to their closed architectures, limiting banks’ service innovation abilities

In this cloud era, banks are transforming their IT architectures and reforming their core services to follow the trends of cloud transformation.

RISC to x86 Migration Ushers in a New Era of Core Banking Platforms

In the hardware field, core banking systems not only require unassailable stability, but also high computing performance.

Huawei KunLun servers feature innovative interconnection chips, hot maintenance for CPUs and memories, and open operating systems. On the x86 architecture, these cutting-edge products function as high-performance, high-RAS, scale-up computing platforms, effectively supporting industrial customers in typical applications, such as service system integration, memory computing, and large-scale virtualization.
