ING Vysya Bank has selected NetApp’s FAS storage system to deliver the necessary throughput, capacity and connectivity to enable the bank to meet the demands of evolving market conditions. The deployment will also allow the bank to build an effective ecosystem of financial services, across its 553 branches, according to a statement.

ING Vysya started with an integral plan to build a world class technology environment to support business growth for the next seven years without capacity issues. With the NetApp FAS storage system ING Vysya can deliver online and mobile banking services to more than 2,000,000 customers across the country.

“We are proud to be the first core banking application in India to be hosted on NetApp. With NetApp’s FAS storage series we can leverage our core banking system (CBS) to provide innovative products to customers while improving performance by 60 percent immediately. It also reduced our batch processing time by 100 percent, significantly improving business agility, system uptime, resulting in greater customer satisfaction” said Aniruddha Paul, CIO, ING Vysya Bank

Sandeep Kaul, Head-IT Infrastructure of ING Vysya Bank said, “We were looking to build a storage solution that would reduce the business’ time-to-market drastically. However, we were also looking for opportunities to utilise our existing infrastructure to cater to new needs. And that’s precisely what NetApp provided us with - enough flexibility, a wide array of software with varied functionality and the confidence that we can leverage the storage infrastructure on a wider platform, in terms of the number of applications it can support efficiently.”

We are pleased to be working closely with ING Vysya to help them deliver innovative products to customers without compromising on quality.
