EastWest Bank chooses HP to build private cloud

Philippines-based EastWest Bank has selected HP Converged Infrastructure to build a private cloud designed to streamline IT operations and reduce costs.

EastWest says that its legacy IT infrastructure was hitting productivity, with an end-of-day financial system closing process that required at least six hours to complete.

Randy Evangelista, head, IT group, EastWest Bank, says: "Our previous system didn't give us enough flexibility to meet our daily business needs; the infrastructure was limiting because we were unable to allocate storage between systems."

Rejecting IBM and EMC, the bank opted for two HP 3PAR StoreServ T400 storage systems, one at its production data centre and another at its disaster recovery site. It also chose HP ProLiant DL360 servers to optimise performance per watt and square foot.

HP says that its technology has helped EastWest Bank slash end-of-day processing times by 40%. Data recovery time for all mission-critical systems was also reduced from up to four hours to only one hour.

"By implementing HP Converged Infrastructure, we've taken an important step towards building a private cloud and delivering a dynamic and flexible IT environment that can keep pace with our business demands," says Evangelista.
