By migrating five business-critical databases—namely core banking, credit card, general ledger, internet banking and mobile banking—to a pre-tested and pre-configured Oracle Exadata, Khan Bank can restore data up to 4x faster and complete batch processing five hours earlier—finishing each day at 3 a.m. instead of 8 a.m.—enabling the bank to provide full banking service to customers, even remote villagers, with minimal disruption. It also allows customers to rapidly process online transactions at any time through internet and mobile banking, which has significantly increased customer satisfaction. Oracle Exadata’s Smart Flash Cache technology also enables Khan Bank to complete data backups 3x faster, ensuring security for critical banking transactions, such as loan repayments and cash deposits.
“Customers these days are more mobile and expect 24/7 banking services, so system downtime is simply not an option. Oracle Exadata’s completely redundant hardware protects against database failure and site disasters, and ensures high system availability. This enables us to complete more customer transactions across all channels, and has increased business revenue,” said Arvind Joshi, Director of Information Technology, Khan Bank. “Oracle Exadata makes a big difference to our banking business, enabling us to minimize risk and enhance our brand image.”
