Supplying FAWRY with IBM Power Systems Solutions

In collaboration with a prestigious IT Reseller, we supplied FAWRY with IBM Power Systems Solutions, which boosted its Storage Performance by 35% and Responsiveness by 200%. Read on to find out how or check the attached infographic for a quick review.

FAWRY was seeking an IT infrastructure solution to accommodate:
  1. Rapid Data Growth generated by Two Million digital financial transactions a day leading to doubled data volumes in only eight months.
  2. 24/7 Availability, Responsiveness and Reconciliation Speed of 90,000 locations, ATMs, and e-banking channels.
  3. Data Science Initiatives

Following their comparative study of available solutions, FAWRY deployed IBM FlashSystem Solutions designed for data at scale. On successfully completing the deployment, FAWRY immediately realized multiple resolutions:
  • Boosting Storage Performance by 35%:

This is accomplished through all-flash storage technology which offers data compression (at a ratio of 2.5 to 1) and data deduplication features designed to realize optimized utilization of storage resources in terms of data capacity and cost of investment.

  • Speeding Up Overnight Reconciliation by 200%:

The combined performance of flash and Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) end-to-end with the reliability and innovation of IBM FlashCore® technology lead to dropping Fawry’s reconciliation speed by 50% (from 5 hours to 2½ hours).

  • 24/7 Availability of Data and IT Infrastructure:

IBM FlashSystem’s six 9s (99.9999%) availability ensures seamless customer experience and supports data science initiatives.

  • Improved Response Time:

A remarkable improvement in response times were noted by Fawry’s employees who were impressed by the system’s performance upon its deployment given a zero migration down-time.

By deploying IBM Power Solutions, FAWRY earned invaluable benefits and ROIs that will impact its competitive edge and long-term success including: 
  • Seamless Customer Experiences:

IBM FlashSystem’s NVMe-Powered IBM FlashCore Technology and Six 9s Data Availability improved FAWRY’s customer experience through optimized responsiveness and reliability. As put by Fawry: “More responsive systems translate into more responsive services for customers, which lead to higher satisfaction – and loyalty”.

  • Reduced Costs:

All-flash storage technology enables FAWRY to store more data in the same footprint through its Data Compression (at a ratio of 2.5 to 1) and Data Deduplication features.

  • Seamless Migration with Zero Down-Time:

Because maintaining 24/7 availability for customers is a must, IBM Power System Solutions and Technical Teams enabled FAWRY to have a successful data migration to the new platform at zero downtime.

  • Data Science Capacity:

With all their growing volumes of business data, FAWRY has set up a data science team for data mining purposes. IBM Power System Solutions empowers this team to realize great potentials now that they have access to IBM’s embedded technologies to support their initiatives.
