Multinational bank and financial services company

Client Information

British multinational bank and financial services company headquartered in London. Universal bank with global reach, offering products and services across personal, corporate and investment banking, credit cards and wealth management. It has operations in over 40 countries and employs approximately 120,000 people.

Business Challenges

The client has an external (DMZ) and internal GSLB solution based on F5 products (GTM) running a mixture of v9 and v10 versions. The scope of the project is more than 25 GTM devices which need to get migrated and consolidate on fewer devices. The client also wanted to merge several legacy sync-groups into one.

Solutions Delivered

ADCBOSS was used to migrate the configuration from the legacy F5 GTM devices (running software version 9 and 10) to new F5 GTM devices (running software version 11).

Several DNS zones which were configured on different GTM sync-groups were merged  into one sync-group for easier management.

Business Benefits

GTM Migration was a total success and more than 25 devices were migrated to new kit with minimal disruption and incident free. It is calculated that performing the same migration based on a manual process could have taken more than 6 months. Using ADCBOSS the project was completed in weeks.
