Al-Futtaim Technologies (AFT), one of the region’s leading systems integrators, has been awarded a contract by Emirates Investment Bank (EIBank), an independent private bank based in Dubai, to upgrade its datacentre.

The contract will see the Al-Futtaim company work closely with IT solution provider Dell EMC and its distributor Arrow to supply, install and configure EIBank’s primary and hot site (disaster recovery site) including servers, storage, and backup and provide complete data migration from the existing storage platform to Dell EMC Unity 500F All Flash storage.

Dr. Hayan Sayed, CEO of Al-Futtaim Engineering and Technologies, said: “The Dell EMC Unity All-Flash sets new standards for storage with compelling simplicity, modern design and flexible deployments to meet all the IT needs for large or small companies. Working alongside our partner we were able to showcase the advantages of the server and storage solutions to the EIBank team.

“We are confident our team will be able to execute the project with minimal disruption to EIBank’s services while providing the highest levels of service to meet and exceed their expectations,” he added.

Imad Bou Khouzam, Chief Financial Officer of Emirates Investment Bank, said: “At Emirates Investment Bank, our clients are at the core of everything we do. This upgrade of our data centre is important because it will help us maximise operational effectiveness and deliver greater IT efficiency to our clients. We are pleased to be working with Al-Futtaim Technologies and Dell EMC.”
