Diebold to unveil first virtualized ATM
NORTH CANTON, Ohio (8/30/11)--Diebold has introduced a prototype for the world’s first virtualized ATM. “Virtualization will fundamentally change the way Diebold--and its customers--deploy solutions to the marketplace,” said Frank A. Natoli Jr., Diebold vice president and chief technology officer. “It enables unified management of a wide array of services and paves the way for orchestration of multiple channels. This development is an important milestone on Diebold’s road map to leveraging cloud computing technology in the retail financial space. This technology is a game changer for our industry.” Diebold is a CUNA Strategic Services provider. Diebold developed the virtualized ATM prototype in collaboration with VMware, a provider of virtualization and cloud infrastructure solutions. Virtualization removes the onboard computer from the ATM, tying each terminal in a fleet to a centralized computing resource. In this scenario, the physical components of a single server provide resources to many “virtual” ATMs. The virtual environment consolidates resources throughout a self-service network and across delivery channels, said Diebold. With consolidated resources, ATM providers can establish centralized data centers and establish better security for IP addresses. Through better server use and unification of ATM management, virtualization also will boost operational efficiency, enable faster failure recovery and more rapid software upgrades and services deployment, said Diebold.
