UNISTREAM Bank has migrated its IT infrastructure to CROC’s Virtual Data Center and now enjoys a more reliable transaction system, fault-tolerance of business-critical systems thanks to a distributed platform, and an agile IT infrastructure, while also reducing operational risks and additional equipment expenses.

UNISTREAM’s IT systems are deployed in a cloud based on CROC’s data center, which is certified by the Uptime Institute for compliance with Tier III «Gold Certification of Operational Sustainability» and guaranteed availability of 99.982%. This cloud adoption project allowed UNISTREAM Bank to improve reliability and performance of resource intensive databases and applications.


Given the specific nature of payment system business processes, CROC’s cloud will enable UNISTREAM to extend computing capacity during peak holiday periods, when the number of transactions grows. In addition, the bank can use Virtual Data Center resources to test new business systems and automate certain business lines without extra IT equipment procurement costs.


«The cloud migration project resulted in a reliable platform with large computing capacity potential and well-developed infrastructure to ensure backup and disaster tolerance. As a result, UNISTREAM Bank now has a solid IT base to pursue its business strategy,»

said Alexey Emelyanov, Head of Information Technology Function, UNISTREAM Bank.


«Banks remain one of our main customers with regard to demand for cloud services, and are also the best prepared businesses for cloud technology adoption. Thanks to cooperation with UNISTREAM’s team of IT professionals at every stage of the migration process, CROC specialists completed the project within a tight timeframe and without stopping key business processes,» said Maxim Berezin, Head of CROC’s Virtual Data Center.
