- The development of a private cloud: 163 systems have been migrated to the cloud, and resource usage has been optimised;
- Server infrastructure operation: the “Laboratory” partnership programme has been launched (involving servers, data storage systems, virtualisation systems, network equipment and video conferencing) in cooperation with the Technoserv Group. RBS 2.1 infrastructure has been implemented (371 servers, five contours with the installation of open-source software). The merged Bank’s servers used a Linux-based operating system and are updated centrally. The merged Bank’s servers used a Linux-based operating system and are updated centrally.
