"SDM-Bank has been collaborating with Fujitsu since 2005. In this time we have grown confident of the company’s solutions, their quality and high level of performance. Fujitsu technologies give us freedom to maneuver: as business volumes grow, all that is needed is to install the requisite devices and programs onto the server, and the bank is ready to conquer new heights"
Oleg Ilyukhin, Director - Department of Information Technology, SDM-Bank
SDM-Bank features in the top 100 Russian banks in terms of profitability. In 2013 the agency Fitch Ratings raised its rating from “B” to “B+” (stable). SDM-Bank has 13 departments in Moscow and the Moscow Region and nine branches in cities around Russia. In total more than two hundred ATMs operate across the country and more than seven hundred self-service terminals, facilitating the provision of a wide range of services, both to legal entities and to individuals. The shareholders of SDM-Bank include the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and its founders are construction and mechanical engineering concerns, leading Russian training centers, organizations and companies from various fields of small and medium business.
In connection with the development of the business, the growth in the volume of data and the number of operations, and also linked with possible risks associated with rolling blackouts, repair work or disasters, SDM-Bank was faced with the need to build a data center located remotely from its head office.
SDM-Bank chose Fujitsu solutions as its preference including a Fujitsu PRIMERGY BX900 S2 blade system and ETERNUS DX440 S2 data storage system. These solutions satisfy all the latest functional requirements in terms of performance, energy efficiency, reliability and protection of capital investment and they offer wide-ranging opportunities for scaling and expanding data volumes.
