Excelian improve Rabobank’s operational efficiency using Logscape
Excelian is pleased to announce that as the managed service provider for Rabobank’s compute grid infrastructure, we have successfully deployed Logscape as the monitoring platform of choice across the multi-thousand core compute grid to provide greater operational efficiency.
Rabobank, a global leader in Food and Agri financing and in sustainability-oriented banking, required a partner who understood both the business and technology underpinning the compute grid to help manage the environment. With Excelian’s understanding of Rabobank’s business and culture coupled with extensive knowledge in High Performance Computing Technology, the Technical Consulting Practice partnered with Rabobank to help manage and enhance the environment. “Rabobank has benefited from the skills, knowledge and expertise of the whole Technical Practice, which helped drive innovation whilst reducing costs for the bank.” says Andre Nedelcoux, Partner and Head of Technical Consulting, Excelian. As a result, Excelian has helped Rabobank stay abreast of the latest changes in the HPC market and assisted the bank in transforming its technology platform to meet the evolving business landscape at the bank for the last 3 years.
“We realised that the operations team here were spending a significant amount of time and effort resolving issues within the environment” says Richard Munroe, Grid Manager at Rabobank. “Excelian proposed Logscape as the ideal solution which has allowed the team to increase productivity and proactivity in dealing with errors.”
Maarten D’Haese, Head of Local Systems & Services at Rabobank expresses the same positivity around the project. “Excelian were able to draw on experience and exposure to high performance computing and work alongside Rabobank to support and increase efficiency across the grid. Logscape has also helped the bank to be more efficient allowing us to give more time towards investing in things that further the productivity of the platform.”
Since its deployment across the compute grid environment, Neil Avery, CTO of Logscape says “Logscape is now being used to measure business KPIs, real-time application monitoring, application development and even automation, proving to be a fantastic platform with multiple-usage.”
