Banco do Brasil consolidates European IT ops on IBM iSeries and Linux

21 November 2002  |  3931 views  |  0 IBM

Banco do Brasil is to consolidate its European IT operation on three IBM iSeries servers in its London office, moving away from a back office AS/400 environment and implementing Linux to cut licensing costs.

The first iSeries 820 server continues to run the bank's core banking application, but now has increased capacity to handle the entire EU operations from a single point, substantially reducing administration costs says the bank.

The second iSeries 270 Domino server is running mail for 250 staff throughout the region.

The third iSeries 820 Server consolidates the network file servers connecting six Intel-based IBM xSeries servers, provides a Storage Area Network and runs Linux for file and print services.

"Banco do Brasil globally has reassessed its IT business needs and we saw the IBM solution as the best fit to be able to consolidate our European offices effectively," says Batista Gomes de Freitas, CIO Emea and AP, Banco do Brasil.

He says the switch to Linux and iSeries "will allow us to leverage our business data and applications more effectively through closer integration and improved ease of management".

IBM Business Partner Platinum Blue provided consultancy and iSeries implementation expertise for the project.
