Allo Bank stirs up digital banking in Indonesia with Tencent Cloud

Tencent Cloud is working with Allo Bank, Indonesia’s largest digital banking platform, to enhance digital banking in the country.

Since 2021, Tencent Cloud has deployed two Internet Data Centres (IDC) in Indonesia. 

Leveraging its local market knowledge and years of experience, Tencent Cloud offers solutions that cater specifically to Allo Bank’s needs.

To realise Allo Bank’s mission of serving the underbanked population in Indonesia, including tech-savvy young adults, Tencent Cloud has helped to improve the Allo app with high-quality and secure services. 

These include TDSQL, a reliable and scalable database management system with computing and storage resources for the bank to manage large amounts of data efficiently and effectively. 

TDSQL’s optimised thread pool scheduling algorithms enable it to deliver better heavy load performance, which is critical for handling Allo Bank’s high volume of transactions.

While TDSQL’s compatibility with MySQL protocols enables Allo Bank to seamlessly integrate with its existing systems and applications, TDSQL’s horizontal scaling capability allows businesses like Allo Bank to expand without downtime, making it a worry-free solution for growing companies. 

With TDSQL’s high-performance computing and storage resources, Allo Bank can now process up to 100,000 daily transactions, fulfilling Indonesians’ daily financial needs.

By leveraging public cloud capabilities such as cloud hosting and CDN, TDSQL can also help Allo Bank reduce the cost of app download distribution, UAT & Dev Environment, while also providing app reinforcement and environment security protection solutions that can detect risks on the bank app side.

“Leveraging our years of global experience and expertise, Tencent Cloud is confident in providing Allo Bank with tailored solutions and services that fulfill its specific needs,” said Jimmy Chen, VP of Tencent Cloud International.

Indra Utoyo, CEO of Allo Bank, said that working with Tencent Cloud has given Allo Bank a large boost in achieving its goals of managing vast amounts of data, handling high-frequency transactions, ensuring online security, and managing risk control – with the aim of providing a revolutionary service to all digital banking users in Indonesia.

The reliability of Tencent Cloud’s technology enabled Allo Bank to scale its operations seamlessly and efficiently, contributing significantly to the bank’s explosive business growth and acquisition of six million users since its launch. 

As a result, Allo Bank was able to become the most downloaded digital banking application in Indonesia.
