How YugabyteDB Scales Temenos’ Cloud Platform to 100K Business Transactions Per Second

Last week, Temenos made a major announcement – the Temenos Banking Cloud is achieving 100,000 transactions per second and running on a greener and more scalable platform.

Specifically, this has been a three-month project with multiple vendors, and YugabyteDB has had a significant role in the project’s success.
