Oman Data Park (ODP), the Sultanate’s first managed services and cloud services provider, has launched Nebula, Oman’s first Virtual Data Centre (VDC).
The launch of Nebula occurred during the organisation’s annual Iftar gathering. This was hosted recently under the patronage of chief guest, Dr. Salim bin Sultan Al Ruzaiqi, CEO – Information Technology Authority.
Nebula is ODP’s latest product name for a new paradigm of cloud-based services also known as a Virtual Data Centre as a Service (VDCaaS).
It permits full spectrum of data centre facilities from computing, storage, networking to network security services as ‘on-demand’; where ODP provides its data centre infrastructure and facilities for rent or lease removing the need for any OPEX costs from the customer.
Hosted locally, Nebula also comes with its own state-of-the-art security services operated over the tier three data centres that ODP is known for.
Supported by a highly qualified and professionally certified team of experts, this new service is a testament to ODP’s continued efforts aimed at helping and guiding customers towards their agile and Digital Transformation in perpetration towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Gig Economy.
Maqbool Al Wahibi, CEO of ODP, said: “Having started with colocation services in 2012 and moving to various offerings under Managed Infrastructure (IaaS) and most recently the introduction of Professional Services (PSaaS), ODP has grown to be the market leader in Oman by giving our customers flexible choices by eliminating CAPEX and offering attractive OPEX based solutions.
“We are constantly focused on being the cloud partner of choice for our customer’s digital enablement journey. We are pleased to continue our growth trajectory by introducing Oman’s first Virtual Data Centre – Nebula.”
