Sneak Peek: Czech Savings Bank lowers IT costs with Red Hat technologies

Established in 1825, Czech Savings Bank (Česká spořitelna) is a banking institution in the Czech Republic, serving more than 5 million customers. When it came time to consolidate and modernize its server system, the company chose an open source, Linux solution for its flexibility, high return on investment and quick installation.

“The decision to consolidate IT infrastructure came from obsolete application development operation. The goal was to reduce operations costs and simplify development changes,” said Jiří Snopek, midrange infrastructure manager at Czech Savings Bank, in the video.

From 233 non-consolidated Linux and Unix application servers, Czech Savings Bank consolidated to only 40 shared Linux servers using Red Hat Enterprise Linux  and Red Hat JBoss Middleware.

According to Ladislav Lála, enterprise platform manager for Czech Savings Bank, the deployment of Red Hat technologies has cut the bank’s operating costs and provided a return on investment within two years of implementation. Lála also is featured in the video. In addition, Red Hat technologies enabled Czech Savings Bank to create a server within the farm in less than two days instead of the originally-planned two months.
