Injazat launches unique cloud solution for GCC

ABU DHABI, April 26, 2017

Injazat Data Systems, a regional market leader for secure data center and managed services solutions, today announced the availability of ‘InCloud’, the region’s first fully integrated cloud solution, with hybrid, public and private model offerings.

Injazat, wholly owned by Mubadala Development Company, is committed to meet the growing need for flexible and secure enterprise cloud computing technologies across the GCC and is playing a key role in fulfilling its vision to establish the UAE as a regional leader for advanced cloud technology adoption, a statement said.

The announcement was made during an exclusive gathering of ICT influencers and industry experts in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Khaled Al Melhi, CEO of Injazat, addressed the audience and unveiled Injazat’s refreshed new corporate strategy and identity.

Al Melhi also welcomed a distinguished panel line-up including Hakim Al Husan, VP, Dictum Health, Middle East; and Faisil Syed, acting head of department, Healthpoint Hospital, who discussed the growing need for increased investment and adoption of innovative ICT services to ensure the sustainable development of the UAE and other GCC nations.

Al Melhi stated: “Today celebrates a new phase for Injazat as a pioneering technology organization. The InCloud solution is truly innovative, bringing a first of its kind and world-class solution to market, delivered by a home-grown UAE organisation. This reflects our new strategy to diversify our existing core business, and is another milestone in the digital transformation of the company, building on its rich 12-year heritage, and delivering secure ICT services to both commercial and government clients. It could not make me any prouder to be the leader of Injazat.”

Complementing Injazat’s existing portfolio of secure IT solutions, applications and managed services, InCloud is set to deliver one of the most cost-effective and easy to use cloud experiences currently available in the market.

InCloud is built on the OpenStack cloud operating environment, allowing for a secure, scalable and highly elastic cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering; delivered to end-users from Injazat’s Tier IV data center facility, the first of its kind to be built in the Middle East.

The IaaS model will provide limited impact on existing IT budgets with zero capex required and, in the long-term, is set to reduce IT overhead costs. Such a capacity is crucial as the region supports an increasingly diverse ecosystem of talented entrepreneurs, small-medium sized businesses, start-ups and application developers.

Injazat will deliver the inCloud service through its strategic network of channel partners and accredited reseller providers.

One of the hallmarks of InCloud is the solution being an ‘in country cloud’ tool. Data privacy has become a critical issue world-wide with companies and government bodies often required by law to keep corporate and/or individual data in the country.

Al Melhi added: “The UAE government is currently exploring various regulations to ensure digital data is safeguarded, this is vital as the nation continues to adopt connected, smart services and the country emerges as the business gateway for global enterprises. Injazat’s InCloud solution builds on our ‘future fit’ approach to business, ensuring that organizations can perform in the best possible way. InCloud is a viable solution to ensure today’s and future data sovereignty laws are met.”  

In 2016, it was announced that Injazat had become a member of the global Cloud28+ Alliance, an open community of cloud providers and resellers, system integrators and government entities dedicated to accelerating enterprise cloud adoption.

According to latest data published by Gartner, the public cloud services market in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region reached almost $1 billion in 2016. The forecast for 2017 is projected to grow 22.2 percent to total over $1.2 billion, up from $956 million in 2016, and is poised to reach $1.42 billion by 2019.  - TradeArabia News Service
