Offering personal loans, retail loans, credit cards, and insurance to its more than 400,000 customers, Cetelem Bank's success relies on a highly available, fast-performing, and flexible IT infrastructure. The bank is under increasing pressure to quickly roll out new services—many of which must be available online, 24x7. To support these demands, it needed its IT infrastructure to be fast, reliable, and secure, and allow for easy extension in the future. The bank rolled out a new infrastructure featuring the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2650 v2 product family supporting up to 15 TB of memory and 10 Fujitsu PRIMERGY* BX924 S4 blade servers running VMware virtualization software. The Intel Xeon processor E5-2650 v2 product family offers increased performance paired with energy-efficient operation compared to previous generation Intel Xeon processor-based servers. The virtualized IT infrastructure running on the Intel Xeon processor E5-2650 v2 product family meets all of the bank's needs, offering the required flexibility, reliability, and performance to quickly get new services up and running. Being able to respond to customer demands quickly and cost-effectively helps the bank remain a key player in a highly competitive market segment.
