STME deploys solutions at DSO
Dubai, February 15, 2011
STME, an enterprise IT solutions integrator serving the Middle Eastern markets, has successfully deployed comprehensive IT solutions for Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO), the integrated free zone technology park.
The recently completed project incorporated solutions from major STME partners including Hitachi Data Systems, Symantec and NetApp.
The scope of work involved setting up a centralised storage array at the main site as well as a disaster recovery (DR) site linked to a redundant fibre channel fabric.
By using Symantec Storage Foundation, solutions such as high availability for critical servers with remote failover, archiving and enhanced backup were also offered, said a statement.
The new solutions have successfully eliminated a single point of failure, simplified IT administration, reduced operational costs, and accelerated vital IT processes such as the recovery of files on network-attached storage after user-initiated file deletions, it said.
Abdulsalam Bastaki, vice-president of IT at Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority, said: “It is essential for us at Dubai Silicon Oasis to make sure that our systems are in line with all ICT developments, especially at a time when the technology sector is witnessing an unprecedented evolution. We have chosen STME to implement and update our systems with the most efficient technology and solutions because of their sound understanding of the integrated free zone park.”
“STME has created a high-performance, high-throughput, scalable solution that delivers optimum value to the IT investments of DSO. Data security is paramount for DSO considering the nature of its business, which is why we have deployed a best-of-breed integrated solution for storage, backup, disaster recovery, and archiving of their email and file server,” added Ahmed Galal, sales and marketing director, STME. – TradeArabia News Service
