Minnwest Bank deploys Riverbed IT Performance Company Solutions
Riverbed Technology has announced that Minnwest Bank has deployed Riverbed Steelhead appliances at each of its two data centers. With Riverbed wide area network (WAN) optimization, Minnwest Bank has executed a disaster recovery (DR) strategy that protects more than eight terabytes (TB) of company data every day. Minnwest Bank has improved business continuity and now meets a recovery point objective of one hour or less, and in most cases approximately 15 minutes. With accelerated DR processes, Minnwest is able to reduce bandwidth utilization, decrease bandwidth costs and reduce IT management costs. More important, Minnwest is able to process transactions faster, thus ensuring better customer service.
Jonathan Schiller, CEO, MinnData, IT operations group within Minnwest Bank, said, "We realized that our nightly cobbling of tape backup and sending them off-site was a time-intensive process that was not reliable and not viable long-term. If we were to have a disaster, then possibly thousands of customer transactions could be lost, with the most recent data available from 4:00 p.m. the previous day. We needed a solution that would simplify the administration, and improve data protection operations and effectiveness."
