Executive Summary

With a variety of local payment processing systems running on more than 200 distributed servers in 74 data centers across 11 time zones, Bank of Russia faced significant challenges in terms of operational efficiency, technical support, and security. Working with IBM and EC-Leasing, the Bank simplified and consolidated its entire infrastructure to just four IBM System z9 Enterprise Class mainframes in two data centers. IBM Global Mirror and Metro Mirror enable mutual fail-over between the data centers, which are separated by a distance of 1,000 kilometers for disaster-protection and business resilience.
