KAL and Ceská Sporitelna Achieve World First with Kalignite Hypervisor ATM in Production


In a world first, KAL ATM Software and Ceská sporitelna have rolled out the first ATM running Windows 10 on a Linux Hypervisor.

KAL's new Kalignite Hypervisor solution, in partnership with Red Hat (News - Alert), is a game-changing solution that allows banks to break free from enforced, costly and disruptive ATM hardware upgrades.

It uses OS-Virtualization technology to solve the long-standing problem of enforced ATM hardware upgrades and decouples the ATM PC-core from the ATM operating system so that software drivers that are unsupported under new Windows operating system versions can be supported by the Linux drivers instead.

Ceská sporitelna's ATM Software Innovation product owner, Jakub Otáhal, explains that the end of support for Windows 7, and the accompanying expense and complexity of upgrading ATM hardware and software to Windows 10, prompted the decision to install Kalignite Hypervisor in a pilot production environment.

He said: "KAL's new solution gives Ceská sporitelna control over when to carry out hardware upgrades. This means we can cut costs by keeping to our 10-11 year renewal recycle, rather than being forced to comply with the hardware lifetime. Very importantly, Kalignite Hypervisor also enables us to keep our software right up to date."

KAL CEO Aravida Korala added: "We are delighted that Ceská sporitelna decided to partner with us to achieve this impressive world first. Kalignite Hypervisor enables Ceská sporitelna to stay completely up to date and run the latest versions of all software on their ATMs. Not only does this technology help with the Windows 10 migration, it also allows Ceská sporitelna to migrate to new Windows LTSC and SAC upgrades without requiring hardware changes."
