Cosmos Bank optimizes storage data replication by 70%, reduces data loss up to 65% and improves response period by 8 times
BENGALURU, India – September 28, 2015 – Array Networks Inc., a global leader in application delivery networking, today announced that they offered a customized solution to Cosmos Bank for enhancing their data replication process and safeguarding valuable customer data. Cosmos bank required their database to be replicated whenever there was a database breakdown. During such breakdowns, Cosmos Bank could lose customer data and was unable to provide banking services. To overcome this problem, the bank deployed Array Networks’ WAN Optimization, which ensured zero data loss during data replication to the disaster site and helped the bank in recovering their customers’ data. Array Network’s aCelera turned out to be a solution which optimized storage data replication by 70% and crunched the data loss up to 65%.
Mr Shibu Paul, Regional Sales Director – India, ME and SEA at Array Networks said, “We are glad to provide WAN solution to Cosmos bank. Our solutions can speed up the replication process of applications along with reducing bandwidth cost. The aCelera WAN 2300 also reduced the bandwidth cost of Cosmos bank thereby ensuring faster response time. Our consulting and solutions offerings helped Cosmos Bank run better and run differently. Our products expertise and business solution capabilities are deep, broad and can help them in providing the best banking services.”
The bank faced many problems in sharing customers’ information with consistency. Moreover, they suffered from limited bandwidth capacity, traffic congestion and latency issues which resulted in slow data replication process and bank was unable to replicate the data after a disaster. Unfortunately, other WAN optimization vendors couldn’t meet the banks requirements of replicating the database. Interestingly Array’s WAN 2300 provided greater bandwidth of a given path and enhanced the data transfer rate. The aCelera WAN solution accelerated database replication and improved bandwidth utilization for Cosmos Bank.
Mr Vikrant Ponkshe, Managing Director and CEO at Cosmos Bank said, “We required a customized solution to enhance the replication of data. We are extremely thankful to Array team for having reduced the bandwidth cost. The aCelera product helped us reduce the utilization of the link from 40 Mbps to 15 Mbps and ensured faster replication.”
Basically Array Networks WAN acceleration solution, aCelera WAN 2300, optimizes encrypted data replication. It allows large amount of data to travel over the WAN optimization link. Moreover it improves the end-user experience and enables greater productivity for employees, customers and partners by reducing the time necessary to complete data transfers and restoration.
