A Scalable Banking System with the Intel® Xeon® Processor E7-4800
The Vontobel Group migrates to x86 architecture for more scalable core banking system.
Since it was founded in Zurich in 1924, the Vontobel Group has expanded to offer exclusive private banking, investment banking and asset management services to customers around the world. Its 1,400-strong workers pride themselves on maintaining customer relationships built on performance and trust and guided by core principles of solidity, stability, and reliability that pervade every aspect of its business. To boost the performance of the core banking platform upon which all its customer and business interactions are based, the bank migrated from a RISC platform to x86, powered by the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4800 and Intel Xeon processor 5600 series. This has boosted application performance by a factor of three while reducing costs and enhancing manageability.
• Maintain reputation. Demonstrate continued excellence in all areas to keep both business success and customer satisfaction high
• Boost core banking application. Ensure overnight batch job processing and response to end-user queries always is fast and reliable
• Move away from RISC. Implement x86 platform to reduce maintenance costs and boost system performance
