Continuous availability for FTM Immediate Payments and ACH: A reference approach

White paper


Abstract

This paper discusses how Financial Transaction Manager (FTM) users can plan the product deployment to achieve high availability and, in particular, introduces the Blue-Green approach to minimize service interruption during product migration or product updates. After reading this paper, FTM users will have a better understanding of this approach, which can be used as a guideline for their implementation. The Blue-Green deployment with Q-Replication is written based on a proof of concept on FTM for Immediate Payments (IP) and FTM for ACH Services (ACH). Actual implementation of the Blue-Green deployment process will vary based on the user’s requirements. Even though the proof of concept is based on the work on Multiplatforms, most of the concepts discussed may apply to z/OS.
