"Fujitsu’s proposal was less complex than the competition, featuring one consolidated All-Flash storage cluster. It also boasted integration with the ETERNUS CS200c appliance with Commvault software."
Francois Balaa, Head of IT BBAC
BBAC is one of the top 10 banks in Lebanon. It provides a full range of banking and financial solutions to individuals and corporations through an extensive network of sixty-seven ATMs and forty-two branches; including three international branches, one in Limassol, Cyprus and two in Erbil and Baghdad, Iraq.
When its existing storage platform reached end of life, BBAC wanted to radically transform its approach to storage by deploying an All-Flash environment. However, achieving this within a tight budget was a challenge.
BBAC worked with local partner Computel to deploy Fujitsu storage with high availability (transparent failover with storage cluster), backup and data management, and disaster recovery for business continuity with replications in three data centers. This now supports all the bank’s key financial applications with built-in backup and replication in a virtualized environment.
