As the UK’s first mobile-only bank, Starling Bank is an inspiring, app-based company, proudly operating in the financial technology space. It is a bank adhering to all the regulatory requirements, but it is also a technology company competing with traditional banking models to deliver modern financial services. To provide a banking service, which supports a debit card, their system must work with an organization like Visa or Mastercard that authorize SWIFT. These organizations require physical hardware in place and a viable alternative to any key supplier. Having built their platform from scratch in the cloud, Starling Bank needed to partner with a world class data center provider.
New debit card service requires an evolution of technical infrastructure.
