Kyndryl is to help a German cooperative bank migrate its data centers from on-premise facilities.

The IT services firm this week announced that Munich-based Hausbank München had selected it to relocate two data centers from Hausbank’s locations to Kyndryl’s own facilities in Frankfurt.

Kyndryl will rebuild the dedicated server infrastructure, establish a modernized network, manage the operating system, and provide a private cloud-native platform based on Kubernetes.

“We look forward to collaborating with Kyndryl and anticipate a fast and seamless implementation of the data center relocation,” said Jan Keuntje, general attorney and CIO of Hausbank München eG. “This will enable us to further expand our services and specialized software solutions for property owners and the real estate industry.”

Kyndryl said Hasubank chose it so the bank could focus more on its core banking business and real estate-focused software solutions.

Markus Koerner, president of Kyndryl Germany, said: "The financial sector is one of Kyndryl's most important industries. We serve about 70 major institutions worldwide. Thanks to our experience with the specific regulations in the financial services sector and the trusted collaboration with Hausbank München eG, we can tailor our services to meet the needs of this new customer individually."

Founded in 1908 as a cooperative self-help organization for homeowners, Hausbank is a specialist bank for property owners and the real estate industry in the Munich area.

There is limited information about the details of Hausbank's data centers, but one is possibly located at the company’s facility on Sonnenstraße in Munich.

IBM spun its Managed Infrastructure Services business out in 2021, with Kyndryl soon claiming to be the world’s largest IT infrastructure services provider.

Earlier this year, NorthC Group acquired a Kyndryl data center outside Zurich, Switzerland, in a sale/partial-leaseback deal. In Columbus, Ohio, a Kyndryl-occupied data center was recently up for sale to a new landlord.
