March 17, 2010 /India PRwire/ — Sanovi Technologies, one of the leading players in the Disaster Recovery Management and business continuity space, has announced the implementation of the Sanovi DR Suite at ING Vysya Bank.
ING Vysya Bank Ltd., is an entity formed with the coming together of erstwhile, Vysya Bank Ltd, a premier bank in the Indian Private Sector and a global financial powerhouse, and ING of Dutch origin, in Oct 2002. As at the end of the year December 2009, ING’s total assets exceeded 1164 billion euros, employed over 110000 people, served over 85 million customers, across 40 countries. This global identity coupled with the back up of a financial powerhouse and the status of being the first Indian International Bank, has given the added strength and dimensions to ING Vysya Bank.
Sanovi offers solutions to proactively manage disaster recovery (DR) environments to ensure that business applications can be recovered in compliance with service level agreements. As the leading independent provider of DR management software solutions, Sanovi is focused on ensuring recovery readiness.
The bank’s treasury department is using Kondor from Reuters for its treasury related applications. To meet with regulatory prescriptions of Reserve Bank of India towards enabling Disaster Recovery (DR), ING Vysya Bank was in search for a suitable DR solution.
“Given the nature of treasury applications, it is a complex implementation with multiple databases, multiple application processes on multiple servers and multiple start stop scrip, using off the shelf host or storage based replications. Our expertise in creating tremendously challenging business continuity DR solutions for the banking sector has helped ING Vysya in implementing the best of breed DR management solutions”, says, Subramanian Parameshwaran, CEO, Sanovi Technologies.
Commenting on the project implementation, CVG Prasad, CIO of ING Vysya Bank said “We are very impressed with the coverage provided by Sanovi’s DR software on all aspects of DR life cycle. The Treasury application is DR ready thanks to the automation and dashboard provided by Sanovi’s software”.
Sanovi identified the areas of application which needed to be DR ready like identifying and removing hard coded IP address references and documentation of all the steps for fail over and DR drill so that they could be automated.
Sanovi DRM completely automates the switch over and switchback test and ensures zero data loss when services transition takes place from the primary to DR and then back to the primary.
Sandeep Kaul, Unit Head, IT Service Delivery, ING Vysya Bank, who was involved in the implementation of the DR software, commented, “Sanovi DRM exceeded our expectations. We were able to deploy the DR solution for our treasury application and do DR dill, all within a week. I thank Sanovi for their professional competence and customer centricity”.
