Business Challenge story

Rapid business growth was putting a strain on Fransabank’s core systems. How could the bank ensure that key overnight processing would not overrun and impact on performance during the working day?


With a new core banking system running on IBM® Power® 870 servers and high-performance IBM DS8870 storage, Fransabank speeds through batch processing and keeps systems responsive to customer needs.


Virtualized storage and server landscapes provide exceptional speed, flexibility and availability. Tiered storage ensures optimal performance:cost ratio. Cross-site clustering protects against disaster.
