Standard Chartered switches to Primergy BladeFrame system

06 June 2006  |  4898 views  |  0 grid

Standard Chartered is installing the Primergy BladeFrame system from Fujitsu Siemens Computers as the platform for its new global core retail banking application.

The new retail banking application will support Standard Chartered's Internet, branch and phone banking operations across 1200 global locations.

The bank's IT provider, Atos Origin, will implement the Primergy system - which is powered by BladeFrame servers from Egenera - and provide the bank with ongoing support from its data centre in Asia.

Jan Verplancke, CIO, group head, technology and operations, Standard Chartered, says: "The Primergy BladeFrame system was the lowest cost, lowest risk choice, providing the most flexibility. It's already helping us improve time to market and IT responsiveness, and will ultimately have a positive impact on revenues."

Verplancke says the Primergy BladeFrame will cut total cost of ownership in half compared to a traditional x86 system and "we expect that ratio to improve still further as we get more countries up and running and can leverage the system's repurposing capabilities across time zones".
