The private banking company managing 3 billion Euros chooses Veeam Cloud Connect Replication for Disaster Recovery
Veeam® Software, the innovative provider of solutions that deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise™, today announced that Banca Albertini Syz, an talian private bank specialized in private banking and asset management, and characterized as an Always-On Enterprise, protected its data and applications from downtime via Veeam Cloud Connect Replication through Project Informatica, Veeam platinum ProPartner.
The Banca Albertini Syz, historical reality with an established reputation, manages 3 billion Euros for an approximately 2,300 clients. The bank is targeting a cut of high-level customers who rely on its consultants purely for financial investment advice.”Our mission is to provide top of the line services, Albertini Syz opted for a strong orientation to the BPO (business process outsourcing) in order to focus on their core business,” explains Mario Locati, responsible for IT systems of Banca Albertini Syz. “Technology plays a vital role to realize these business choices, as it allows us to keep control of all processes and operations and, at the same time, to make efficient our in costs structure.”
As stated in the “Availability Report” released by Veeam this year availability is of paramount importance for banks. Users want support for real-time operations (63 percent) and 24/7 global access to IT services to support international business (59 percent). Moreover, loss of customer confidence (68 percent) and damage to brands (62 percent) are three ‘non-financial’ results of poor availability: cosequences that a private bank cannot really afford. Banca Albertini Syz has therefore tended to replace the existing Disaster Recovery plan to optimize and benefit from the innovations offered by the most innovative technologies conjugated to the strategic needs of the bank. “We were looking for a solution in the cloud but controllable internally, simple to use and that would guarantee the availability 24/7 of our data and our applications. We have therefore embraced the offer from Project Informatica that was the only one to propose the possibility of using a business continuity and disaster recovery site as an actual service. So we installed Veeam Cloud Connect Replication,” says Locati.
Veeam Cloud Connect Replication is an integrated, safe and efficient solution to transfer the customers’ backup to an offsite repository managed with a service provider of their choice, without the capital investment required for an infrastructure offsite.
“The intervention allows us to be more reliable and more efficient: even in case of downtime, caused by any problem, we are always ready to give attention to the clients. Although these technological operations are not visible to the end customer, they benefit from them in terms of reliability of services provided by us,” concludes Locati.”We propose Veeam as it offers the opportunity to respond to the cloud, not only data, but entire virtual systems. The flexibility to restore these systems and this data whenever you need it, makes the concept of essential disaster recovery because it allows the business continuity that in many enterprise and businesses of all sizes is a priority,” adds Enrico Bassi, System Engineer of Project Informatica.
“We’re seeing that in the cloud, banking sector finds more and more support in process optimization of financial instruments, in computing platforms for Big Data and Analytics and e-learning services,” said Albert Zammar, Vice President of Southern EMEA at Veeam. “With the exponential increase of the critical applications used in everyday business of banking services, you really need to improve to offer constant availability to customers, just like Albertini Syz Bank has done.”
