Digital River, Inc. (NASDAQ: DRIV),
a leading global provider of Commerce-as-a-Service solutions, today
announced an expansion of its Brazil payments offerings through a
partnership with EBANX, a cross-border payments processor in Brazil and
Latin America. Since 2007, Digital River has been facilitating payments
in Brazil as a reseller and payments gateway. The joint Digital River
and EBANX offering will provide companies of all sizes a turn-key
solution for processing local online payments, including installments,
Without having to take on the high cost of establishing a local entity
in Brazil, the joint solution enables online merchants to:
Quickly set up and start processing online payments in Brazil through
a direct API or a hosted payment page;
Increase authorization and conversion rates by accepting local payment
options, including Boleto Bancario and cards;
Consult with Digital River’s local, knowledgeable support staff in the
Brazilian market; and
Gain access to payments tools that include online payment processing
and authorization, recurring billing and batch processing.
“Brazil is the fourth largest payment card market in the world,” said
Souheil Badran, senior vice president and general manager of Digital
River World Payments. “A number of our clients view Brazil as a
strategic growth opportunity. We can help them navigate this highly
complex market for cross border commerce, improve their authorization
and conversion rates, and control overhead costs and risks associated
with managing their own local entities.”
Digital River offers merchants entering Brazil three different business
models that can evolve with their payment processing needs. The company
leverages its own local entities to serve as a reseller for businesses
that don’t have a local presence in Brazil, offers a payment gateway for
merchants with their own local entities, and now provides a fully
integrated offering through the partnership with EBANX.
“With EBANX, we expanded our existing payments offerings in Brazil and
added another option for our clients to capture more market share in
this thriving ecommerce market,” added Badran.
“Partnering with an ecommerce and payments leader like Digital River
helps EBANX reach a greater number of merchants that are looking to
Brazil as their next ecommerce frontier,” said Alphonse Voigt, CEO at
EBANX. “As merchants prepare to enter Brazil, they must understand the
intricacies of market dynamics, regulations, tax structures and payment
processing schemes. Together with Digital River, we can lend our local
payments expertise to help them drive more revenue in a complex market.”

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
