JN Data A/S is an IT services provider for two Danish banks, Nykredit and Jyske Bank. The company also provides IT services for three additional banking IT companies—Bankernes EDB Central (BEC), Skandinavisk Datacenter (SDC), and Bankdata (BD). One-third of the financial customers in Denmark currently depend on JN Data’s services.
Denmark’s financial sector recently experienced several mergers. JN Data went through three consecutive mergers with new partners―BEC, SDC, and BD― all which used IBM tape technology. The company needed to consolidate tape storage for banking transaction data from these three partners onto a single platform to ensure stable and secure operation and easy administration during the mergers.
To deal with the challenge, JN Data deployed Oracle’s StorageTek technology. This solution has enabled the company to achieve a stable, secure, standardized, and very reliable storage environment, not only during the critical mergers, but also for normal operation. In addition, Oracle’s storage solution has reduced floor space and the total cost of ownership for JN Data’s storage technology.
