KeyBank, KeyCorp’s main subsidiary, has announced that it will continue its digital transformation efforts by adding Kubernetes technology to its data center operations

Kubernetes, an opensource container-orchestration system, was originally developed by Google before moving over to the Cloud Native Computer Foundation and will benefit KeyBank’s efforts to launch new features more quickly, with greater efficiency and security.

The system, along with Istio’s opensource service mesh, is a fundamental component of Google Cloud’s Cloud Services Platform which will be deployed in KeyBank’s data center operations.

Keith Silvestri, chief technology officer at KeyBank, said:

“We are creating a new kind of bank for our customers, and Google’s creation of Kubernetes and Istio made them the obvious cloud to collaborate with as we look to bring containerized applications into our data centers.”

“Using Cloud Services Platform for our hybrid deployment will be like having hundreds of Google developers all working to build us the best platform for delivering modern banking services to our customers.”

The firm noted that Cloud Services Platform will “increase velocity, improve reliability and manage governance at scale” in its data centers.

KeyCorp, owner of KeyBank, is one of the largest bank-related financial services companies in the US, with a portfolio of assets worth around US$137.8bn as of June this year.

KeyBank itself operates via a network of 1,200 branches around the US.
