NetApp has announced that Buzinessware, a hosting specialist in the Middle East, has become the first provider in the region to deploy NetApp SolidFire all-flash scale-out storage to underpin its hosting and cloud services. For the first time, companies in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will have access to agile, scalable, on-demand storage infrastructure that delivers predictable, cost-effective performance in the cloud, along with reliable 24/7 UAE-based support.
In its 2015 Middle East Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) predictions, Deloitte expects the region’s digital economy to double by 2018, reaching US$30 billion. Growing revenue in the digital economy requires on-demand infrastructure elasticity–the unique ability offered by NetApp SolidFire to independently scale capacity and performance–without impacting production workloads. With NetApp SolidFire at the core of its cloud infrastructure, Buzinessware is well positioned to support customers’ cloud initiatives by enabling them to increase revenue, minimise cost and reduce risk.
Unlike any other technology, NetApp SolidFire enables Buzinessware to guarantee performance to each and every customer application and workload, scale out non-disruptively, and automate its entire storage infrastructure to keep operational costs low. As a result, it provides a superior hosting and cloud computing experience to customers by delivering reliable, high-performance, cost-effective infrastructure services.
“Our customers’ needs for consistent, predictable performance in the cloud–even in the face of ever-increasing demands–has made NetApp SolidFire the ideal choice for our storage infrastructure,” said Sajid Mulla, director of operations at Buzinessware. “We are now able to deliver the exact level of performance required to each and every one of our customer’s applications, and make changes to performance and capacity on the fly without any disruption. As a result, we can help customers cost-effectively manage their core business services on demand, accelerate the pace of their innovation and drive true value in their businesses.”
“Buzinessware is a leader in accelerating the Middle East’s global success and giving its customers a competitive advantage in the digital economy,” said Stuart Oliver, Global Consulting Director, Fueled by SolidFire. “Buzinessware’s infrastructure, fuelled by NetApp SolidFire, empowers customers to capitalise on the agility, automation and scalability of a next generation data centre, enabling new business opportunities and driving new growth.”
