After working closely with Hewlett-Packard (HP) for several months, the Egyptian Cyber Centre (ECC) has opened its doors to its Internet Data Centre. HP helped in both the funding and the deployment of the data centre.

The data centre which has been set up at a cost of approximately $25 million, will provide outsourced IT services to businesses of all sizes in Egypt and surrounding GCC countries.

Inaugurating the Data Centre, Dr. Atef Obeid, Prime Minister of The Arab Republic of Egypt said, “I am delighted to see such a wonderful example of the new economy being set-up in Egypt and I encourage all forward thinking business people to embrace the internet and take our country towards a bright new tomorrow.”

The 25,000 square feet data centre will specifically host, monitor and maintain web sites, e-commerce platforms and e-business applications.

“ECC knows its customer’s success depends on a successful and resilient e-business,” says ECC’s Chairman, Tawfik Bardai.

“We can help them plan, build and manage their e-business, resilient connection to the Internet, and working with them to integrate their front-end web services with the back-end enterprise systems. Once launched, our customer’s e-business will be secure, run at peak performance, be data protected and flexible [enough] to quickly accommodate future demands and secure in the knowledge that ECC has employed the latest HP proven technology.”

Exactly which HP technology has been used to set up the data centre is currently unclear.
