Blue Chip Technical Services (Pvt) Ltd., a total IT solutions provider, said last week that the Bank of Ceylon (BOC) is the first organization in Sri Lanka to install IBM Power Systems Power 770 servers.
As the bank’s primary live and DR (Disaster Recovery) servers, the new Power 770 servers replace IBM iSeries e Servers running several business critical applications including BOC’s core banking application.
To keep pace with the advancements of technology, and to be able to harness ever-growing volumes of data affecting the banking industry, the bank decided to upgrade its existing hardware platform to IBM Power Systems servers with POWER7+ technology, the company said.
Sentil Murugan, Director, Blue Chip Technical Services, noted that the BOC transaction is “a testimonial to Blue Chip’s advanced technical capabilities and proof of the excellent customer service provided to Bank of Ceylon over the course of the last 15 years”.
Luxman Perera, Head of IT, Bank of Ceylon, said: “We selected IBM Power Systems because they provide the reliability and security we need for our customers’ private and most critical information”.
