Spanish bank Bankinter increased responsiveness when Gneis switched mission-critical applications to Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers
Gneis Global Services manages the IT for Spanish bank Bankinter, a pioneer in digital banking services. With maintenance costs rising fast for its servers, Gneis researched a number of server platforms to find the one best suited to its business needs. In this process it undertook a RISC migration project and deployed servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family. Bankinter determined that its customers can now enjoy more responsive and reliable banking services than previously, and Bankinter can rapidly launch new IT initiatives.
