Here’s a snippet from Stosh in his abstract about the talk.
In this talk, we will explore how Pungle leverages AWS products and services in order to to provide highly reliable, real-time business payments processing, while staying compliant with Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards. We will highlight a few specific AWS services such as: SQS (for high throughput fault tolerant inter-service messaging), KMS (for payment card and financial account data encryption), and EC2 Auto Scaling (for handling increases and decreases in transaction requests), and describe how they are used within the Pungle Platform.
We are very excited to be part of the Amazon ecosystem and look forward to joining other companies at AWS Startup Central like Tulip Retail, StackAdapt, WattPad, Wealthsimple, Coinsquare, and Pungle.
Come join Pungle, learn about our real-time payments for business and how we scaled with AWS.
