The Challenge

Streamline platform for efficient development

Deutsche Bank wanted to shorten development cycles to get products to market faster. But its restrictive infrastructure made integration difficult and application development slow. Managing thousands of servers and databases hindered growth and the adoption of emerging technology. “Many operating systems were being used across multiple datacenters,” said Emma Perkins, PaaS portfolio manager at Deutsche Bank. The bank also wanted to replace its traditional waterfall processes with a DevOps approach. To meet these needs, Deutsche Bank sought to establish a PaaS that would streamline development and management, reduce risk, and scale easily to support more agile work across its business.

The Solution

Build a new platform with open source technology

Deutsche Bank chose Red Hat to help build Fabric, a containerized, microservices-based application development platform. Fabric hosts systems and tools and offers on-demand computing for every application development team at the bank. “Red Hat offered that combination of open source with vendor support, patching, and management—all of the things that we need in a regulated enterprise,” said Tom Gilbert, managing director, global head of cloud, application, and integration platforms with Deutsche Bank. “The shift from virtual machines to containers, and traditional applications to microservices, is a big one. We needed a partner that could help us build our deployment capabilities and train our global developer base so we could get maximum value from our investment.”
