LOUISVILLE, KY - 18 Mar 2009: One of the nation's nationally recognized premier community banks, has selected IBM (NYSE: IBM) systems to power a new backup-and-recovery solution.

Stock Yards Bank & Trust Company began in Louisville's stockyard district more than 100 years ago and recently expanded to Indianapolis and Cincinnati.

"The backup and recovery system installed by IBM and IBM Business Partner Software Information Systems, is providing greater reliability and has improved our operational efficiency," said Jim Condra, Stock Yards chief information officer. "We chose to replace our Hewlett-Packard servers and storage systems with IBM hardware largely because of the expertise of the IBM and SIS team that helped us."

The backup and recovery solution is based on IBM System x3650 servers, a storage area network (SAN) based on IBM System Storage EXP3000 expansion units, and VMware virtualization software.

Software Information Systems (SIS), an IBM Premier Business Partner, worked closely with IBM and managed the solution installation, configuration and associated training.

"IBM provided Stock Yards Bank & Trust with a customized backup-and-recovery solution that fit their budget and provides an easy-to-use solution that reduces administrative costs and energy use," said Jeannette Browning, IBM client representative.

About Stock Yards Bank & Trust CompanyStock Yards Bank was established in 1904 in Louisville, Kentucky and has offices in the Louisville metropolitan area, Indianapolis and Cincinnati. As of December 31, 2008 the bank had $1.6 billion in assets.
