Diamanti Helps Italy’s Largest Bank in Its Digital Transformation

Shift saves Intesa Sanpaolo 48% on server nodes, slashes data center footprint

SAN JOSE — MAY 20 — Italy’s largest bank, Intesa Sanpaolo, tapped Diamanti’s best in its class Kubernetes appliance and their mutual partner, Intel with its Fusion I/O technology, to architect the bank’s digital transformation.

Intesa Sanpaolo was looking for a Kubernetes solution for their transition to cloud-native applications to unlock innovation while boosting performance, resilience, and efficiency. With Diamanti and Intel, the bank doubled its addressable memory capacity while saving 48% on server nodes and slashing the data center footprint required to run its applications. The organization also achieved its goal of improving system performance and efficiency.

“Many organizations are adopting Kubernetes for deployment of their cloud-native applications, as Kubernetes allows them to maximize efficiency and minimize the costs of their digital transformation to hybrid cloud environments” said Diamanti CEO Chris Hickey. “With Diamanti’s high-performance turn-key kubernetes solutions, organizations like Intesa Sanpaolo will be able to better serve their customers and spur innovation without worrying about a lapse in performance that normally comes with hypervisor-based solutions and still increasing the application density to improve the overall TCO in hybrid cloud environments.”

Diamanti is a provider of turn-key kubernetes solution with multiple patents and unique innovations in storage and networking technologies for private and hybrid cloud environments. With Diamanti’s help, organizations can dramatically increase performance while cutting both their costs and their carbon footprint.

The partnership between Intel and Diamanti helps clients like Intesa Sanpaolo to modernize their infrastructure to propel themselves to the forefront of their industries. With Intel’s Optane Technology, supported by Diamanti’s Kubernetes platform, the bank now has access to best-in-class infrastructure — and can rely on it to provide the best possible experience to customers while developing new products to pioneer the banking industry’s digital transformation.

“Intel is constructing a formidable ecosystem around Intel® Optane™ Technology,” said GigaOm Analyst Enrico Signoretti, an internationally renowned expert on data storage. “These building blocks are enabling enterprises and service providers to create innovative infrastructures as support for business and mission-critical applications. And when this technology is fully integrated in end-to-end solutions, as in the case of Intesa Sanpaolo, the benefits are even more evident, and ROI is maximized.”
