Banking in the Cloud: Ultra-High Reliability Architectures

When building the software systems for a bank reliability is key. How do you create a software architecture that provides you with extremely high reliability, whilst still allowing you to deploy code at a reasonably rapid pace? This talk will focus on the experience of Starling Bank, which has spent the past 3 years building and running a bank with just such an architecture. It will explain the construction of the self contained systems that make up the bank, how those systems are designed to be deployed and scaled independently whilst still providing incredibly high reliability, and how this system is expected to scale in the future.
