What do you need to run our software?
We use the industry standard Microsoft server stack of products; these can be run internally or cloud hosted.
The infrastructure platform required is:
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 or later with
Microsoft Internet Information Server 7 or later and
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or later.
Microsoft .NET runtime 4.5 or better.
Vega’s banking suite requires Microsoft Biztalk Server 2013 R2
Vega’s software is largely browser based and most modern browsers are supported.
Our custom built development platform, Sirius, allows us to get your project up and running quickly because the fundamentals are already in place.
Vega’s Sirius is both a secure web application shell and an application programming framework. Sirius manages user accounts, user access security, organisations, and applications out of the box. It has features for scheduling background tasks as well as a comprehensive report publishing system. All of the basic requirements of an application are immediately available allowing Vega’s Consultants to concentrate on the business functionality our customers need. Sirius dramatically reduces development project timescales.
Sirius is built with industry standard Microsoft tools like Visual Studio and SQL Server. Click here if you would like to know more about Sirius
Security is built into the core of our software. To protect your clients and your data. We regularly pass penetration tests with top marks.
How Sirius is built makes it highly resistant to hacking attacks. Sirius is regularly penetration tested to ensure security by “ethical hackers”. What are these attacks and how does Sirius defend against them?
As such an important area for discussion we have provided a more in depth overview of the security addressed and this can be seen here.
We don’t like secrets – we ship all our software open source so there’s no “black box”, no escrow.
Vega’s software is written using Microsoft development tools and languages. The core of Sirius is written in Classic ASP (VBScript) and T-SQL, the scripting language of SQL Server. Sirius also has a number of services and Web Services that provide a range of additional features. These are written using C# and the .NET runtime. Vega ships the source code so customers can have complete peace of mind that they will have access to the software for the long term.
Using the Microsoft stack allows us to keep our clients software current. Systems we write do not become obsolete, for example our Vision Banking System was originally created 11 years ago but is currently running on current Microsoft software and utilises new features as they are released.
