Supplying FAWRY with IBM Power Systems Solutions

In collaboration with a prestigious ITReseller, we supplied FAWRY with IBM Power Systems Solutions, which boosted itsStorage Performance by 35% and Responsiveness by 200%. Read on to find out how orcheck the attached infographic for a quick review.

FAWRY was seeking an ITinfrastructure solution to accommodate:
  1. Rapid DataGrowthgenerated by Two Million digital financial transactions a day leading todoubled data volumes in only eight months.
  2. 24/7 Availability, Responsivenessand Reconciliation Speed of 90,000 locations, ATMs, and e-bankingchannels.
  3. Data Science Initiatives

Following theircomparative study of available solutions, FAWRY deployed IBM FlashSystemSolutions designed for data at scale. On successfully completing thedeployment, FAWRY immediately realized multiple resolutions:
  • Boosting Storage Performance by 35%:

This isaccomplished through all-flash storage technology which offers data compression(at a ratio of 2.5 to 1) and data deduplication features designed to realizeoptimized utilization of storage resources in terms of data capacity and costof investment.

  • Speeding Up Overnight Reconciliation by200%:

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

  • 24/7 Availability of Data and ITInfrastructure:

IBMFlashSystem’s six 9s (99.9999%) availability ensures seamless customerexperience and supports data science initiatives.

  • Improved Response Time:

Aremarkable improvement in response times were noted by Fawry’s employees who wereimpressed by the system’s performance upon its deployment given a zeromigration down-time.

THAT’S NOT ALL!
By deploying IBM PowerSolutions, FAWRY earned invaluable benefits and ROIs that will impact itscompetitive edge and long-term success including: 
  • Seamless Customer Experiences:

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


  • Reduced Costs:

All-flashstorage technology enables FAWRY to store more datain the same footprint through its Data Compression (at a ratio of 2.5 to1) and Data Deduplication features.


  • Seamless Migration with Zero Down-Time:

Becausemaintaining 24/7 availability for customers is a must, IBM Power SystemSolutions and Technical Teams enabled FAWRY to have a successful data migrationto the new platform at zero downtime.


  • Data Science Capacity:

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