About the company

Sberbank Insurance (SberStrakhovaniye OOO) is a subsidiary of Sberbank that specializes in property and personal insurance programs, with life insurance being the exception. It is part of the Sberbank Wealth Management Unit. In 2020, the collected insurance premium amounted to 21.2 billion rubles (according to the IFRS). Sberbank Insurance is included in the Top-10 composite insurance companies in Russia in terms of collected fees. Expert RA has given the ruAAА rating to the company while S&P has assessed it at the ВВВ- level.

Project goal

Prior to partnering up with SberCloud, the company used to cooperate with another Russian cloud provider. The quality both of the provided service and the equipment used for the cloud infrastructure failed to meet the company's needs. This, in turn, affected the general business development and the company's ability to host high-season events that required performance at the highest level. Furthermore, the previous provider could not offer PaaS-services or a considerable capacity margin.

Due to the rapid business growth, Sberbank Insurance needed to promptly increase the resource computing capacity when launching new insurance products and doing marketing campaigns. To meet this requirement, the cloud provider had to ensure several features and solutions:

  1. Increasing the flexibility of infrastructure capacity management;
  2. Platform services for cases lacking in rationale or capacity for rapid growth of internal competencies;
  3. Fault tolerance of infrastructure.

Why SberCloud?

Sberbank Insurance conducted a comparative analysis of various cloud service providers on the market. SberCloud has become the final choice as it provides modern technical solutions and a large selection of platform services.

Solution

The company connects to the SberCloud transport network through its own network infrastructure, so connecting virtual data centers which the services are based on has been promptly completed in two weeks.

To ensure fault tolerance, the customer:

  • hosts application cluster nodes on different SberCloud platforms for cloud-ready or cloud-native applications;
  • replicates data on platforms based on DBMS vendor technologies;
  • uses replication based on VMware for those systems that have not yet been transformed into cloud-ready or cloud-native ones.
‘There are not many employees in the Sberbank Insurance IT infrastructure team. Therefore, the key challenge was doing a large number of various tasks – from modernizing the network infrastructure and supporting the launch of new systems to doing numerous optimizations and integrations with new partners. We strive to listen to and help the customer as we believe this is the right approach for developing cooperation, and we are glad that we have partnered up with SberCloud,’ shares Dmitry Gordeyenko, Infrastructure Director at Sberbank Insurance.

Result

Sberbank Insurance can now easily scale and increase the computing power of its own systems. The transition to the IaaS model has completely eliminated the risks of late equipment delivery and significantly reduced the risks of failure to carry out work.

Several new products made by the insurance company have been launched on Kubernetes to support auto-scaling, rolling updates, and canary deployment.

Further plans

At the moment, Sberbank Insurance is starting to use other SberCloud platform services as well with the goal of expediting deployment. The team also has plans for the ML Space cloud platform as the basis for their insurance product billing and pricing models.

‘Insurance companies store and analyze large amounts of customer data on a daily basis, so modern IT technology gives them the competitive edge. The Sberbank Insurance team makes the most of cloud technology by connecting the features of our two cloud platforms to serve business tasks' needs. This approach is the most efficient one, and we are ready to provide all the necessary support in terms of developing our customer's business,’ highlights Anton Nagov, Corporate Client Manager at SberCloud.
