As part of their strategic alliance, Microsoft and Temenos worked together to define a recommended deployment architecture that provides high availability and disaster recovery (HADR) for the TEMENOS T24 core banking solution running on the Microsoft Application Platform and using Microsoft technologies. The main goal for this effort was to minimize the number of Microsoft software licenses and the need for specialized hardware (such as load balancers) in order to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of the HADR solution.

This white paper—written by Igor Pagliai of Microsoft and Dammika Wickramashinghe of Temenos— describes the recommended deployment architecture and provides step-by-step guidance. The paper also provides an extensive list of links for further information.
