Republic Bank is a Louisville, Kentucky-based bank with more than 45 banking centers that offer a variety of personal and business products, as well as convenient online and mobile banking services.
Republic Bank needed to better manage data
processing resources for its traditional banking
transactions and its tax-based business, which generates
a four-month surge in processing demand each year.
Republic Bank implemented SQL Sentry for database
monitoring and V Sentry for visibility into resource
utilization across the company’s VMware environment.
The Republic Bank data team used SentryOne solutions
to close gaps in monitoring data and now proactively
manages a data estate of 1,500 SQL Server databases
across 100 servers with a four-DBA team.
The data team at Republic Bank, headquartered in Louisville, KY, implemented SentryOne SQL Sentry to resolve problems with gaps in monitoring data, and subsequently added SentryOne V Sentry to help the data and infrastructure teams quickly identify and address potential performance problems in their virtual environment.
Led by Chris Yates, Assistant Vice President and Database Administration Manager, the team includes Senior DBAs Jeff Rouse, Josh Higginbotham, and Wendi Grant. The added visibility of V Sentry helped them better prepare for the four-month annual period when the company experiences surges in data processing: the run-up to the annual tax deadline.
