The Central American financial group acquired, in 2016, the local operation of a world-class international insurance company and Bank.
It starts its operations paying for the use of the infrastructure and services provided by the platform of the acquired international bank, which generated a high operating cost and the limitation of not being able to offer new services to its clients.
From the above arose the need to acquire its own core system and a technological infrastructure to support this system with the characteristics of high availability, disaster recovery, high performance, optimization of resources and economies of scale that would allow them to reduce their operating expenses. and offer innovative solutions to its customers.
TECNASA designed the data center infrastructure, taking into account that the bank must provide services on an ongoing basis, and that the system must include mechanisms for online data copying from a long distance to remote locations. The solution included:
- Solution of highly redundant servers
- Storage solution
- Disk backup solution
The technology platform was based on a virtualized infrastructure of HPE Blade servers, HPE 3PAR storage, and backup solution from Vmware and Data Protector disks. This platform was configured in a highly redundant manner and with centralized administration using software tools, such as Insight Control.
The server platform hosts the banking core applications and applications of the insurer.
The Bank has managed to come out with its new core system on an agile, secure and stable infrastructure that allows it to maintain continuity of service to customers and offer them new financial solutions and services. In the same way, it has managed to reduce its operating expenses significantly.
