Meeza, a Qatar-based managed IT services and solutions provider, has announced the opening of its data centre M-Vault 1, which can offer clients 99.98% availability, the highest levels offered by commercial data centres in the country.
As a member of QSTP, Meeza is fully aligned with the park’s vision of spurring the development of Qatar’s economy.
“Meeza has invested in this world class data centre because we believe that IT security and availability of data are very important to our clients and this facility will enable us to deliver secure and cost-effective IT services to our client,” said Hamad Al Mannai, deputy CEO of Meeza.
“Information and technology will be essential tools in the realisation of Qatar’s ambition to build a knowledge-based economy both for now and the future.”
Dr Eulian Roberts, managing director of QSTP said: “Data centres are both vital to the research process and a spring-board for innovative new enterprises. Meeza’s new M-Vault 1 represents an engine that will accelerate these advances in Qatar.”
Meeza, established in partnership with Qatar foundation for education science and community development, officially launched its services to the market in November, 2008.
Meeza offers a wide range of services to clients, from creating and managing IT infrastructure to providing full business and technology consulting. Meeza's mission is to be the preferred managed IT services and solutions provider in the Middle East and North Africa.
By using secure and highly available IT Services, clients of Meeza can realise cost savings from a reduced need to invest capital in IT infrastructure.
The first services to be offered from M-Vault 1, to clients such as Vodafone Qatar and Masraf Al Rayan, include managed storage, network and security as well as disaster recovery capabilities.
Meeza is also uniquely positioned to introduce cloud services to the region. Cloud services provide businesses with access to a robust IT infrastructure and the latest applications without having to bear the high costs of license ownership and maintenance.
