GLOBAL BANK REDUCES STORAGE BY 40% IN AN EFFORT TO CONSOLIDATE DATA CENTERS ACROSS THE GLOBE
A multi-national banking institution wished to consolidate all its data centers, residing in seventeen separate countries, into one center in Singapore. The Singapore location lacked the necessary storage space for the consolidation. Additionally, their Sydney data center was experiencing severe online and batch window problems.
Critical Path was engaged when it became evident the vendor of the Systematics package would be unable to successfully solve the issues. The TurboTune® Analysis was completed in one extended overnight session. 800 file improvements were recommended and fully implemented resolving 100% of the performance issues.
The file reorganization also provided a reduction of 40% of the DASD footprint paving the way for the complete migration of all global data centers to the Singapore location, saving the bank untold millions.
