Information on the Monzo infrastructure


(Tom) #1

Hello!

I did a quick search and haven’t found anything similar.
I was talking to someone the other day and I told them about Monzo, they said ‘Oh no, I wouldn’t use one of them banks, look whats happened to TSB and Natwest! I need to be able to walk into a bank if something goes wrong!’.

Of course these kind of technical problems are very few and far between however, it is an interesting question - when one of these happens I would assume it may hurt these new kind of banks like Monzo.

So it would be great if there were a video that would show the infrastructure Monzo has, the back up systems etc… (of course within reason, I wouldn’t want them to compromise any security by showing things they shouldn’t!).

I just thought this may educate new potential customers who may be worried about a digital bank!

If you’re technically inclined, there is an interesting video by @matt from a couple of years back explaining how Monzo’s infrastructure has been built.

The thing is with TSB is that the staff in the branch weren’t able to do a lot either.

TSB’s issues were also because they were switching from a 40-odd year old IT system controlled by an external bank (Lloyds) to an IT system which had only worked for takeovers and consolidation of small Spanish banks.

They were also trying to cut corners and did a 5-year job in 2 years. Look what happened…
