Mobile operator, Vodafone Egypt, has beefed up its storage capability in order to handle subscriber growth and increasing volumes of customer data.

Under the move, the operator enlisted Middle Eastern enterprise storage provider, STME, to install EMC’s Symmetrix DMX1000 information storage system and provide it with additional capacity of 17,000 Gbytes.

“Vodafone Egypt is generating a vast volume of data, including customer information on more than 2 million subscribers, as well as related billing records, and business intelligence,” says Mohammed Fahmy, senior data centre manager, Vodafone Egypt.

“We believe that the total cost of ownership for maintaining the EMC system will be less than our existing infrastructure, which is an important consideration in Egypt’s competitive telecoms market,” he adds.

EMC says the Symmetrix DMX solution is based on its new Direct Matrix Architecture, which will serve as the foundation for the vendor’s high-end storage products for the next decade.
