Data Center Case Study - International Banking and Financial Services Organization


RESOURCES

International Banking and Financial Services Organization

Background

This International Banking and Financial Services Organization is one of the largest banking and financial services organizations in the world, with offices in Europe, the Americas, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa. Through an international network linked by advanced technology, the bank provides a comprehensive range of financial services, including personal financial services, commercial banking, corporate banking, investment banking and markets, private banking and other activities.

The Situation

Operations never cease for this global financial services giant. With offices in every time zone, the bank demands true 24x7x365 availability of its information technology resources. A highly flexible and dynamic data center infrastructure is required to support these availability demands. Data center monitoring systems track availability by providing real-time data on support system operations as well as analyzing performance so that potential problems can be identified and eliminated before they occur.

Results

  • Eliminated hot spots and equipment malfunctions in existing data center.
  • Successfully converted storage room to high-density computing environment.
  • Created dynamic cooling and power infrastructure that can scale to support 1,000 blade servers as part of a planned expansion.
“I was impressed by the flexibility of the different Liebert XD cooling modules. I didn't want anything touching the top of my racks that could interfere with future reconfiguration, so we suspended Liebert XDV cooling modules from the ceiling,which left clearance above the racks.”
