In January 2020, support for Windows 7 will end and it must be replaced by Windows 10. This migration presents banks with a major problem: the expense and complexity of upgrading their ATM software and hardware.
The shift from Windows XP to Windows 7 in 2014 cost the global industry billions of dollars because upgrading the ATM operating system also meant upgrading the hardware. Banks are about to encounter the very same issue again when they must upgrade to Windows 10.
But there is an answer: OS-Virtualization. This uses a technology known as a hypervisor to separate the hardware motherboard from the operating system so that software drivers that are unsupported under Windows 10 can be supported by the hypervisor software instead.
Hypervisor technology removes the need to upgrade current hardware when ATMs move to Windows 10, protecting the investments made by 20,000 banks worldwide in software and hardware, while remaining compliant with PCI.
