In the digital banking age, customer experience relies heavily on the always-on availability of underlying data and applications.

As such BLC had the mandate to optimize their data management strategy in line with stringent business expectations. Veeam Availability Suite was the de facto answer. 


BLC’s environment, that is 85% virtualized, relies confidently on Veeam to ensure 24/7 availability of its mission critical services: from core banking to mobile banking applications, Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange and Active Directory… ensuring continuous accessibility to vital services of both internal & external stakeholders.

Realized outcomes:


  • 60% reduction of the backup window
  • Dramatic improvement in recovery time
  • 30% operational savings
  • Enhanced visibility with sound monitoring capabilities
  • Budget predictability with advanced capacity management and forecasting functions
  • Streamlined processes
  • Enhanced security and regulatory compliance
  • Peace of mind from assured availability and integrity of customers and operation data.

With such gains in efficiency and quality of service BLC are naturally extending Veeam deployment to encompass the physical environment enabling hyper-availability across all banking services and data.
