About Client

VTB Bank (Ukraine) is a stable universal bank that is among the country’s largest banking institutions according to the classification by the National Bank of Ukraine. The bank specialises in all-inclusive servicing of large corporate clients, small and medium-sized businesses, as well as services for private clients.


VTB Bank development necessitated the creation of an integrated system with a wide functionality ranging from data backup and recovery to recovery after accidents and storage space management. The bank’s existing IT infrastructure required efficient data management, software and hardware state monitoring, coordinated functioning of software and hardware system, etc.

And SI BIS experts provided the solution that did just that.


The Bank’s IT infrastructure was distributed between two geographically dispersed sites. The infrastructure was built on optical switch-based SAN storage network and. IBM storage systems were used at the main and backup sites.


Modernisation implied deployment of two high-performance IBM p570 Power System RISC servers with creation of a standby cluster.

The second stage of the IT infrastructure modernisation included deployment of IBM Tivoli Storage Manager with the following agents:

• IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases
• IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Storage Area Networks
• Tivoli Storage Manager Data Protection
• IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Storage Area Networks
