DDos on a Bank

Today a bank began testing with our company. We've written a SOAP service to accept jobs, and as the bank does not have a reciprocal service to recieve completed jobs, they opted to have files Secure Copied to their server for distribution.

Running a script to send off 20 jobs or so every two minutes from two of our servers managed to break the bank's service within a short period.

I thought it was nifty: how many people can say they've pulled off a DDOS attack on a large bank with impunity?
