Doha, March 14, 2009
Meeza has signed an agreement with Fuego Digital Media, a ‘software on demand’ company headquartered at the Qatar Science and Technology Park, to provide it with highly available, scalable and secure data centre services.
Meeza, established in partnership with Qatar Foundation, delivers a full suite of Managed IT Services and Solutions to the market and is focused on service excellence.
Fuego is building the ‘Fuego OnDemand’ Service to provide simple Web-based business applications in Arabic, English and French to the 5.3 million small and medium-size enterprises (SME) across the 22 countries of the Mena region.
Speaking about Fuego’s market opportunity, Kevin Higgins, Fuego’s CEO, said, “Increasingly, the web is becoming the primary means of an organization’s interaction with customers, citizens, partners and employees. A key to improving SME business growth and profitability across Mena region is to provide access to better web applications.”
Meeza will be hosting the Fuego OnDemand Service from M-VAULT 1, its Tier 3 Data Centre, which is the first of its kind in Qatar and is located at a highly secure location within the Qatar Science & Technology Park.
M-VAULT 1 offers clients 99.98 per cent availability that is the highest level of availability offered from any commercial Data Centre in Qatar, said a top official.
“Meeza is proud to be able to contribute to the success of Fuego through this agreement. By delivering high quality Managed IT Services and Solutions, we aim to support the growth and success of companies like Fuego in Qatar and across the region,” stated Hamad Al Mannai, Meeza deputy CEO.
“Fuego will be providing mission-critical services to its SME customers and reliability and security are of paramount concern to us,” said Karl Gretton, Fuego’s chief technology officer.
