Alba moves to cloud with Microsoft
Manama, December 9, 2013
Aluminium Bahrain has deployed Microsoft Windows Server 2012, moving to the cloud computing system.
The move has improved the company’s operational efficiency and helped it achieve 25 per cent reduction in IT production cost, said Alba in a statement.
Alba IT manager Esam Hadi said: "Windows Server 2012 utilises advanced cloud technology and is expected to provide us with greater agility, availability and flexibility. It includes the additional advantage of having the ability to quickly build and maintain virtual environments at a minimal cost.”
Commenting on this deployment, Tareq Hijazi, regional country manager for Microsoft Bahrain and Oman, said: “Corporate customers, such as Alba, can use their existing skills and investments in systems management, application development, database, identity and virtualization to take advantage of Windows Server 2012 and realise the promise of cloud computing.”
In combination with Windows Azure and System Center, the server empowers customers to manage and deliver applications and services across private, hosted and public clouds.
“We are pleased with the Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and Microsoft's overall cloud stack as it helps us achieve a transformational leap in the speed, scale and power of our data centres and applications,” stated Hadi. - TradeArabia News Service
