Intesa Sanpaolo is the largest bank in Italy and maintains a network of over 5,000 banking branches across Europe and North Africa. With nearly 19 million customers and €739 billion in assets, Intesa Sanpaolo is an integral part of the financial fabric and as such, Italian regulations require that they keep their business and applications online to serve their customers.

As a bank that can trace its roots back to the early 1800s, the majority of Intesa’s edge applications are still monolithic and hard to move between data centers, never mind migrate to the cloud. Diego Braga, Intesa IT Infrastructure Architect, looked to Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) at the recommendation of his Kiratech business partner Lorenzo Fontana to improve their application availability, portability and add cloud friendly application delivery. With Docker EE, Intesa was able to consolidate infrastructure by nearly 60%, thus saving significant money over their previous design, while also enabling higher application availability across regional data centers and preparing themselves for the cloud.

Prior to the Docker EE implementation, not only were the applications monoliths, but Intesa maintained two separate data centers as mirrors of each other to achieve high availability. This design required excess, cold standby hardware capacity in each data center to handle any outages and successfully failover operations; hardware they hoped they would never need to switch on and thus it sat idle and depreciating. Intesa desired a solution that would enable them to utilize the available capacity of both data centers.

The new design with Docker EE enables Intesa to utilize the resources in both data centers, eliminating waste and delivering cost savings. Through testing and analysis, Diego calculated that Docker Enterprise Edition allowed him to consolidate and run over 2.5 times more applications per physical server with Docker EE than in the previous virtualized environment. This consolidation benefit delivered the cost savings required to move the project forward.
