Goal

As a provider of highly available and efficient financial IT services, the most pressing challenge Busan Bank faced was monitoring and managing its mission-critical data center.

Disparate groups of users from IT and facilities were managing and maintaining data center assets, capacity, and space with different tools. Moreover, critical information about the data center was available only through handwritten records, making it difficult to obtain accurate business intelligence analytics.

  • Cost savings to achieve highly optimized and energy-efficient infrastructure
  • Enhance asset visibility, inventory, and available space and capacity across data centers
  • Minimize duplicated tasks across departments
  • Shorten the go-to-market lead time required to support business initiatives

Process

By adopting Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) and approaches to optimization, such as right-sizing data center equipment for energy efficiency, implementing an InRow™ cooling system, and adjusting floor layout, Busan Bank now has the potential to achieve a PUE of 1.8 and up to 600 million KRW (€430,000) in cost savings.

  • Manage the data center life cycle, provisioning, retiring equipment, and tracking equipment moves, additions, and changes
  • Long-term energy efficiency through rack standardization, cooling management, and power monitoring
  • Optimize for energy-efficient infrastructure
