Elevating Excellence: Empowering Innovation through AWS Partnership

AWS x Wallester

Prioritising Excellence

At Wallester, we prioritise doing things right from the start. This principle guides all aspects of our operations, from forging trusted partnerships to delivering top-notch services to government-owned entities and launching innovative mobile applications.

Our in-house-built, cloud-native platform was carefully built in Tallinn, using the latest cloud technology for unrivalled flexibility and scalability. Using the Go programming language, we have developed a microservices architecture that facilitates the seamless adoption, testing and deployment of new features.

Go, developed by Google, aligns perfectly with our ethos of efficiency and modernisation. Its capabilities enable us to incorporate, rigorously test swiftly and seamlessly deploy new features. Moreover, our selection of Go permits us to circumvent the limitations of traditional Virtual Machines, a testament to our commitment to cutting-edge technology adoption.

This strategic decision gives us the dual advantage of unparalleled flexibility and remarkable scalability. The cloud-based architecture empowers us to swiftly adapt to evolving industry demands while seamlessly accommodating growth without compromise.

Leaders in Cloud-Based BaaS

Wallester is proud to announce our participation in the AWS Stockholm Summit and to share that the Wallester Case has been selected for the AWS SMB Security Campaign 2023.

AWS has helped us renew our PCI DSS Level 1 certification, proving our adherence to secure financial transaction processing in the cloud.

At Wallester, we are dedicated to pushing boundaries, setting new industry standards, and providing exceptional services to our clients. Our partnership with AWS strengthens our position as a leading industry innovator and fuels our commitment to excellence in the financial technology sector.

Powered by AWS:

Partnering with Amazon Web Services (AWS) has provided us with the scalable, compliant, and intelligent platform we need to secure the title of innovative FinTech with big ambitions.

We recognised the high demand for our products and the need for a scalable platform compliant with regulations. Before launching our flagship product, Wallester White-Label, we collaborated with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to build our architecture. We sought an efficient, secure, cost-effective, collaborative service provider.

Our ambition is to become the next Estonian Unicorn. To achieve this, we require a reliable, compliant, intelligent platform that can accommodate our growth rate.

Leveraging AWS Services:

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), AWS CodeBuild, and more empower us to deliver top-notch services.

  • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2): As an AWS customer, we leverage this service to access a wide range of instances and flexible options that perfectly align with our workload requirements. With support for Intel, AMD, and ARM processors, exclusive EC2 Mac instances, fast networking, and exceptional performance for machine learning and SAP workloads, Wallester ensures the best value and performance for cloud computing needs.
  • Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS): Amazon EKS simplifies the management and scalability of our Kubernetes clusters. We benefit from AWS infrastructure’s power, reliability, and security, seamless integration with networking and security services, and a consistent Kubernetes solution for our on-premises environments. With Wallester’s integration of Amazon EKS, containerised applications can be easily deployed and scaled with ease, maximising efficiency and accelerating innovation across any environment.
  • AWS CodeBuild: This service enables us to build, run, and test codes in a controlled, continuously integrated environment. We ensure a safe and efficient development process with protected artefacts and ready-to-deploy software.
  • Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) and AWS Key Management Service (KMS): AWS enables us to securely store and encrypt our data on their cloud platform securely.
  • AWS Cloud HSM: With AWS CloudHSM, we maintain control over our encryption keys using FIPS-validated hardware and dedicated HSM instances. Our keys are safeguarded within our own Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), ensuring the highest level of data security.

Empowering Organisations

We are grateful for the dedicated team at AWS. Our partnership enhances our capabilities and allows us to extend our services to organisations seeking trustworthy and efficient card program issuers. Committed to delivering high-quality services and leveraging the latest technologies, we assist our clients in achieving their goals, whether it’s through branded card programs, payment infrastructure, white-labelled mobile applications, fraud monitoring systems, or contactless payments.

“Our partnership with Amazon Web Services has been instrumental in putting us at the forefront of cloud-based banking innovation. At Wallester, we don’t just prioritise excellence – we embody it in every facet of our operations. This collaboration has enabled us to lead the way in Embedded Finance, shaping new industry standards and empowering organisations with cutting-edge solutions. Our vision to become the next Estonian unicorn is within reach, and with AWS by our side, the sky is not the limit – it is just the beginning,” – said Sergei Astafjev, CEO of Wallester.

A Commitment to Excellence:

In the ever-evolving sphere of FinTech, being an innovator is not just about holding a title—it’s about driving change, setting benchmarks, and consistently delivering unparalleled service. Our partnership with AWS is a testament to this commitment.

At Wallester, we are determined to push boundaries, shape new industry paradigms and deliver excellence to our valued customers. Our affiliation with AWS cements our stance as industry frontrunners and reinforces our pledge to innovation and excellence in the realm of financial technology.
