Back to the beginnings: What did the IT system of the Sparkasse Karlsruhe look like? Besides IT operations that are being processed in the central computing center of all Sparkassen, the computational finance, the Sparkasse Karlsruhe operates its own IT infrastructure consisting of server, storage and network. Data accumulates here as well, and this data has to be stored after processing and what’s more, archived reliably and within the law. After the virtualization of Microsoft servers, which has been implemented on the basis of Microsoft HyperV, the previous archiving solution – a WORM-capable Blue Ray Jukebox, became outdated once and for all.
