Nymbus builds digital banking solutions that help community banks and credit unions succeed
Consumers and companies now expect digital banking to deliver more than just online access to traditional branch banking services . Nymbus helps community banks and credit unions enter the digital banking market through a full suite of applications , operational resources , and strategic guidance to modernize and optimize existing channels .
With its all-in-one platform , Nymbus works with clients to quickly launch boutique banks for specialized customer segments – and at a lower cost than custom solutions .
“ A lot of organizations are starting digital banks , but they ’ re not all successful . They can especially struggle at differentiating themselves in a quickly growing market ,” said Larry McClanahan , Chief Product Officer ,
However , Nymus did not own its digital banking platform , restricting its flexibility to develop specialized features for clients and maintain a growing portfolio of these customizations .
“ When we decided to bring our core platform inhouse , we decided to take a modular containerized approach to give us the desired flexibility and simplify management by maintaining customization as configurations ,” said McClanahan .
Adopting a flexible , scalable container platform with Red Hat and Nutanix
After extensive market research , Nymbus selected Red Hat OpenShift as the foundation of its new , in-house approach , running on Nutanix HCI , a hyperconverged infrastructure ( HCI ) solution from Red Hat ’ s partner .
Red Hat OpenShift , an enterprise Kubernetes container platform , provides a modular container-based environment for rapid , iterative development . Nutanix HCI , is optimized for hybrid cloud operations , from initial deployment to ongoing expansion and maintenance .
“ Red Hat OpenShift is the standard Kubernetes platform for enterprises . Everyone understands it and it ’ s well supported ,” said Matt Gibb , Vice President of Alliances , Nymbus . “ Nutanix HCI , is very extensible , providing comprehensive hybrid cloud management .”
Nymbus launched its new in-house core banking foundation and began using the platform to support a solution with specialized features in just nine months .
