Modo has developed and deployed a platform that enables interoperability between any given number of payments systems. Global financial institutions, processors, fintechs and merchants need to power new applications and experiences that leverage their existing assets in combination with new systems – each of which has different messaging syntax, semantics, structures and notions of state. Modo’s cloud-based utility solves for the issues specific to integrating these disparate systems – creating interoperability and removing the complexity inherent to navigating global payments infrastructure. ModoPayments leverages AWS services to enable reproducible, scalable architecture and the capacity to create an event-driven platform.
The below diagram represents a sample deployment of the Modo digital payments platform. Within this diagram you can see how we leverage AWS capabilities like AWS Auto Scaling, AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS), and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), and best practices in Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) design as foundational components of our platform.
Working with Modo
Modo provides multiple deployment models to meet the specific operational, information risk, or compliance needs of an individual client. From multi-tenant solutions with fixed monthly recurring pricing, to dedicated environments with usage-based cost structures, we have options for payments customers of all sizes and needs. In environments were usage-based costs are involved, all levels of the Modo platform incorporate dynamic auto-scaling to minimize costs during non-peak times while maintaining the levels of redundancy desired by the customer.
