Swiss bank keeps omnipresent files going with NetApp flash and MetroCluster IP.
PostFinance is a diversified, innovation-driven financial services provider that offers its customers smart solutions for all their banking needs. In doing so, PostFinance relies on forward-thinking tools and technologies that are developed or adapted specifically for the Swiss market. NetApp® systems provide the file data for secure banking transactions and speed up the development of financial products and services with persistent storage.
PostFinance can implement new functions, services, fixes, and release cycles quickly and securely. The secret to success is NetApp’s ability to deliver persistent storage resources to Kubernetes through Astra™ Trident. Developers can use self-service to mount, use, and discard storage. Kubernetes takes care of capacity allocation within hard quotas.
NetApp caters for persistent storage. It’s the only way we can provision around 800 shares automatically. No tickets. No waiting times. Everybody wins.

Even the best systems eventually need renewal. After 6 years of permanent operation, the file storage was ready for a refresh. Performance, scalability, replication, unified operations for UNIX and Windows shares, support quality, manageability, migration concept, and more were factors in the decision about a vendor and product. NetApp AFF A400 systems with NVMe storage for fast data access won, once again configured as a MetroCluster cluster, but now for IP.
Efficiency methods like data compression, deduplication, and compression at the volume and aggregate levels help PostFinance save on capacity and expansion steps. Combined with NetApp’s all-flash technology, PostFinance can store almost twice as much data as it has capacity in place.
Solutions for customers in every industry, every vertical, everywhere. In the cloud, on-prem, hybrid. Data that’s ready for anything you want to do with it.
