Dubai Islamic Bank moves towards Branchless Banking
Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) moves towards Branchless Banking. This challenge was long faced by many banks in Pakistan but DIB is took this initiative with the help of New Horizon to achieve this milestone.
The challenge faced by DIB was of desktop virtualization, in which desktops and applications are not installed locally at the terminal devices, but are centralized and virtualized in the datacenter and made available to users on demand. The security team of DIB faced a specific challenge, which needed to be addressed in order to achieve the business's compliance aims. It had to amend the way in which users authentication parameters was handled. This solution should provide an extra protection for users and technical staff who are logging onto the network from remote locations or internally from DIB's network.
With Citrix XenDesktop, DIB no longer needed high-cost, high-performance computers in the workplace. Since the slender terminal devices have no moving components, like hard disks or fans, they are also much quieter and more energy efficient than ordinary desktop computers.
In the future, the users will be able to log on by means of a two factor authentication solution powered by RSA, RSA SecurID Token provides secure authentication to call up their personal desktop. Rapid workplace changes, frequently required in the savings bank field, are also supported: The user need only take out his RSA hard token to log off from a terminal device; the user session remains open on the server and can be resumed seamlessly again on another computer.
The desktop virtualization solution that the DIB implemented together with RSA SecurID, is based on the interaction of several components. Microsoft Hyper-V was implemented as a virtualization platform. DIB can simultaneously operate multiple desktops in virtual machines, coupled with a very secure 2-Factor authentication mechanism, provides DIB a robust and secure platform to deliver the high performance desktop user experience.

New Horizon provides Disaster Recovery Solution to Dawlance
New Horizon provided a distinctive Disaster Recovery Solution to Dawlance. New Horizon fulfilled the requirement of Dawlance of deploying a DR Site to safeguard the critical data of the organization.
Dawlance was engaged with New Horizon for planning their DR Site and lining out a plan that ensures a minimum outage in case of calamity. In this reference, New Horizon proposed a solution to Dawlance which features a robust and cost-effective DR Site. This solution includes virtualization technology, whereas the data is replicated through Veeam and Oracle Dataguard.
Virtualization offers a unique value proposition, with the opportunity to reduce costs while also increasing service levels. Nowhere is this value proposition more apparent than with data protection. Veeam provides the most comprehensive protection for your virtual environment, offering backup and replication through one solution. This gives flexibility to meet different recovery objectives (RTOs and RPOs) for different virtual machines (VM). You can replicate a VM on-site for high availability, off-site for disaster recovery, or back up using less expensive hardware and techniques. You save on software licenses-and realize additional benefits from virtualization. To ease data transfer to and from off-site locations, Veeam uses WAN bandwidth efficiently and lets you replicate over slow WAN links.
This solution delivers comprehensive resource consumption and workload data for hosts, clusters and data stores, with visibility all the way down to the individual VMs and applications running inside it. The solution has the capabilities to speed up analysis and troubleshooting, and will help Dawlance to determine potential resource bottlenecks for virtual server workloads and eventually the future of IT roadmap of Dawlance will be aligned with the latest technology.
Dawlance is the Premiere Home Appliances Company in Pakistan with 30 years of history. The company began its operation in 1980 with the production of Refrigerators. Today, beside Refrigerators, Dawlance is producing Washing Machines, Chest Freezers, Vertical Freezers, and Split AC & Microwave Ovens. Over these years Dawlance has not only developed the largest dealers' network but has also established the largest after sales service set-up across Pakistan.
